    The poll found 62% of Black U.S. voters said there are only two genders, biological male and females, while 49% of whites and 51% of Hispanics said the same. Thirty percent of black voters said there were "other gender identities," compared to 44% of whites and 39% of Hispanics.

    "This is a pretty significant measure of a massive cultural shift," Rasmussen said. "As on many other questions, there is a significant gap between voters under 45 and their elders. A majority of older voters believe there are just two genders. Younger voters are evenly divided."

    Just the News Daily Poll respondents were asked “Do you believe there are only two genders--biological males and females? Or, are there other gender identities?" They responded as below:

    • 51% There are only two genders
    • 41% There are other gender identities
    • 8%    Not Sure

    The national survey of 1,200 registered voters was conducted June 18-20, 2020 by Rasmussen, a polling veteran. Margin of sampling error: +/- 2.8% for full sample.
