    Transportation

    Nearly one-fifth of the Highway Trust Fund is allocated to mass transit like city bus routes or light rails.

    DETAILS:

    AGAINST Republicans

    Republicans want to cut mass public transit allocations from the Highway Trust Fund as they only serve a small local population rather than the larger infrastructure. They want to put the funding responsibility back in the hands of cities and relevant programs. They oppose an increase in raising the federal gas tax. source

    FOR Democrats

    Feel that government funded mass transport helps improve urban economies by giving low- and middle-class wage earners an alternative to get to work, school, and other essential locations. They also support an increase in the federal gas tax. source


    AGAINST

    LGBTQ

    The LBGTQ community faces discrimination by some businesses and institutions based on traditional family ideals and religious views. These views have continued to evolve rapidly in the past decade, and there is a shift toward bipartisan support of protections of LGBTQ individuals among voters. source

    DETAILS:

    AGAINST Republicans

    There is a rise in republican voter interest in protecting the rights of LGBTQ individuals. 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. They focus on equal rights in all areas of life, and do not feel religious beliefs should be a factor when businesses choose to hire or serve an individual. source
