FOR

Over half support extra protections to avoid discrimination in workplaces, businesses, and attaining housing. The protection of businesses and institutions based on religious grounds is weakening as religious views evolve. source

FOR Democrats

Democrats feel a person’s identity should not interfere with their ability to work, vote, marry, attain housing, or other basic life tasks.
