(TargetLiberty.org) – A new Rasmussen Reports poll has shown that the majority of Americans support the boycott of Anheuser-Busch products following their new partnership with transgender influencer Dylan Mulvaney in its advertising.

The poll was released on Tuesday and it showed that 54 percent of Americans supported a boycott of the brand. This included 37 percent who “strongly” supported the boycott. Only 33 percent of respondents stated that they opposed the boycott, while 16 percent claimed that they were unsure of what to think.

The poll was conducted by Public Opinion Research, LLC, and it included 1,041 American adults between April 12-13, and 16. The margin of error was at 3 percent.

Of those who were surveyed only 40 percent stated that the inclusion of Mulvaney in the advertisement for Bud Light would make them less likely to purchase that particular beer. Nineteen percent on the other hand said that it would make them more likely and 37 percent stated that their choice would remain unaffected.

Fifty-two percent of Americans stated that they believe corporations are paying too much attention to transgender issues, while 18 percent believe that more attention needs to be given. 15 percent have stated that the right amount of attention is given, and 15 percent are unsure.

Along party lines, from those who are less likely to buy the company’s products, 58 percent were Republicans, 28 percent were Democrats, and 38 percent were not affiliated with either party. The boycott is also supported more by married adults (61 percent) and those who have children at home.
