Among Democrats, opinion is fairly split: a plurality, 46%, support trans female athletes’ right to compete on women’s and girls sports teams, while 41% oppose it.

Independent voters oppose trans female athletes right to compete by 3:1 (21% support; 63% oppose).

Among Republicans, support plummets to just 4%, while 88% oppose.
