New Polling: HB2 Led to Pat McCrory’s Defeat

Today, HRC and Equality North Carolina released the results of major post-election polls conducted by Greenberg Quinlan Rosner Research showing that the majority of the electorate — including voters that supported Donald Trump and Mike Pence — has in no way backed down from supporting LGBTQ equality. Additionally, North Carolina polling found that the anti-LGBTQ HB2 was the critical issue leading to Governor Pat McCrory’s defeat — the only incumbent governor from either party to lose on Election Day.
