Transgender Democrat Candidate Leading Rivals in Congressional Primary

According to new polling released on Friday, Delaware Democrat Sarah McBride, who launched a potentially historic campaign in June to become the country’s first openly transgender member of Congress, is reportedly far ahead of her primary rivals.

In a survey of likely Democratic primary voters in Delaware this month, Change Research found that 44 percent of respondents said they would support McBride if the primary were held today.

This is more than the 23 percent who said they would support her main rival, Eugene Young, director of the Delaware State Housing Authority.

Another 13% of those polled said they would support state treasurer Colleen Davis as the Democratic candidate for Delaware’s at-large congressional district; 18% expressed indecision; and 2% said they would abstain from voting in the Democratic primary if McBride, Young, and Davis were the only candidates.

According to the poll conducted on Friday, McBride, 32, has a significant lead among likely female voters and holds leads in the majority of the age categories surveyed.

However, regardless of the contender, more than 90% of respondents said they would definitely or probably cast a ballot in Delaware’s Democratic primary in September, with about two-thirds claiming to be “extremely motivated” to do so.

In 2020, McBride became the first out transgender state senator in the US.

Her prospective candidacy would occur at a time when more and more Americans are rejecting the radical social agenda of the far-left.
