Canada is now the first nation in the Americas to allow citizens to list themselves as a third gender on their passports, and California is poised to be the first state to do the same when it comes to drivers’ licenses. But Americans overall aren’t quite ready to go that far.
A new Rasmussen Reports national telephone and online survey finds that 32% of American Adults favor allowing a third gender option on passports, drivers’ licenses and other official forms of identification. Fifty-one percent (51%) are opposed to this gender neutral option, while a sizable 17% are undecided. (To see survey question wording, click here.)
The survey of 1,000 American Adults was conducted on August 29-30, 2017, by Rasmussen Reports. The margin of sampling error is +/- 3 percentage points with a 95% level of confidence. Field work for all Rasmussen Reports surveys is conducted by Pulse Opinion Research, LLC. See methodology.
