LOUDONVILLE (FLV) – According to a new poll conducted by New York Times / Siena College, a supermajority of American registered voters support provisions present in Florida’s Parental Rights in Education Act, falsely dubbed the “Don’t Say Gay Bill” by activists.

The poll of 1,399 registered voters was conducted from Sep. 6-14, 2022.

The law prohibits teachers in grades K-3 from instructing students on sexual orientation or gender identity. According to the new poll, a strong supermajority of American registered voters agree with that provision.

On the topic, respondents were asked the following questions:

Do you support or oppose allowing public school teachers to provide classroom instruction on sexual orientation and gender identity to children in Elementary school (grades 1 to 5)?
Results: 70% oppose, 27% support

Do you support or oppose allowing public school teachers to provide classroom instruction on sexual orientation and gender identity to children in Middle school or junior high school (grades 6 to 8)?

Results: 54% oppose, 44% support

HB 1557 was signed by Gov. Ron DeSantis in March.

Prior polls also found majorities of Americans agreeing with the provisions. In May, a Fox poll found 55% support those kinds of provisions.

Also in May, an Axios and Harris Poll that gauges the reputation of the 100 most visible brands found the Walt Disney Company took a major dip in the rankings after ardently opposing HB 1557.
