Huge majority of LGBT people in US think homophobia will hurt Buttigieg presidential bid [View all]

Openly gay mayor Pete Buttigieg will be challenged by anti-gay sentiment among Democrats in his bid to be US President, according to most LGBT+ people in the US.

Buttigieg, who is currently the mayor of South Bend in Indiana, is seeking the Democratic nomination and has been open about being a gay man – including bringing his husband, Chasten, to campaign events, and them both appearing on the cover of TIME magazine.

But an overwhelming majority of 87 percent of LGBT+ people in the US think that anti-gay sentiment will hurt his presidential bid, even among Democrats, according to a new survey from Whitman Insight Strategies and BuzzFeed News.

When asked the question, “Do you think that homophobia will be a challenge for Pete Buttigieg’s presidential campaign during the Democratic primary?”, 87 percent agreed while only 13 percent disagreed.
