Liberal Pollsters Try To Bury Poll That Found Americans Oppose Transgender Procedures On Children: Report | Eastern North Carolina Now

    A Democrat-linked polling group is "keeping quiet" about its findings from a survey that shows Americans oppose transgender procedures on children, a new report claims.

    The Daily Mail says it "gained access" to an invitation-only web event hosted by San Francisco-based Change Research. During the event, the group unveiled the new poll results, with the group leaders then "privately hatching plans to 'educate' the public by 'rebranding puberty blockers.'"

    Change Research, which conducts mostly online surveys, has done polls for Democratic political candidates as well as organizations such as the NAACP and AFL-CIO.

    The Mail also said they were invited to join the webinar, then uninvited, but "we attended anyway, after registering with a personal email address." What's more, the U.K. paper reported that the group's marketing chief, Molly McInerney, said they would "not be making these results widely available" and asked attendees not to "share these findings." The Mail also reported that the firm had already declined the paper's request to see the findings before the webinar.

    "The webinar indicated that Change Research wanted to conceal its results - with the stated goal of reshaping US attitudes on gender ideology and trans treatments on kids," the paper said.

    The poll of more than 1,200 voters conducted between April 28 and May 2 found that a majority (60%) of Americans believe sex is assigned at birth and that can't be changed, according to the Daily Mail. Fifty-six percent also oppose prescribing puberty blockers to children and 60% oppose sex-altering surgeries, such as breast removal.

    Just a third of those surveyed support such procedures on children.

    But the poll also reportedly found Americans were reasonable about the issue. Those surveyed appeared willing to allow children to get sex-reassignment counseling with their parents involved. They were also OK with other treatments as long as they were reversible.

    But those polled opposed "'permanent" or "physical, non-reversible changes to the body."

    "It means butchering a human body to try and change a person's sex as determined by the CHROMOSOMES through biology," said one respondent. "A person is and always shall be the sex assigned by their chromosomes, and nothing will change that."

    Lead pollster Betsy App called the results "bad news." "I want to give us all a reality check,' App reportedly told the online session. "We are facing an uphill battle when it comes to voters' fundamental beliefs about the relationship between sex and gender."

    App, a mother of three including a "gender creative first-grader," told the online session they need to use the term "gender affirming care," calling it a "great term that we should continue using" because it resonates with the public.

    But she said "puberty blockers" should be abandoned. "One of the key next steps is rebranding puberty blockers," she said. "This is a term that's not doing us any favors."

It has been far too many years since the Woke theology interlaced its canons within the fabric of the Indoctrination Realm, so it is nigh time to ask: Does this Representative Republic continue, as a functioning society of a self-governed people, by contending with the unusual, self absorbed dictates of the Woke, and their vast array of Victimhood scenarios?
  Yes, the Religion of Woke must continue; there are so many groups of underprivileged, underserved, a direct result of unrelenting Inequity; they deserve everything.
  No; the Woke fools must be toppled from their self-anointed pedestal; a functioning society of a good Constitutional people cannot withstand this level of "existential" favoritism as it exists now.
  I just observe; with this thoughtful observation: What will happen "when the Vikings are breeching our walls;" how do the Woke react?
