According to a new survey, 71 percent of Americans support LGBT protections.

When the nonpartisan Public Religion Research Institute asked, “Do you favor or oppose laws that would protect gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgender people against discrimination in jobs, public accommodations and housing?” 71 percent of respondents answered yes. Twenty-four percent remain opposed.

The survey is based on more than 42,000 interviews in all 50 states.

Majorities of Democrats, Republicans and Independents said that they support such protections.

Currently, only 33 states offer fully inclusive LGBT non-discrimination protections. A federal bill introduced last year by Democrats would extend protections to all Americans. Illinois Representative Bob Dold last month became the first Republican to back the proposed legislation. Senator Mark Kirk of Illinois followed suit within days, making him the first Senate Republican to co-sponsor the bill.
