In a survey, more than half of people in Florida, Pennsylvania, and Ohio, were opposed to a mandate requiring public schools to allow it.

Voters in Florida, Pennsylvania, and Ohio—three swing states—are split over allowing transgender people to use the bathroom that matches their gender identity, according to a newly released Quinnipiac University survey.

In Florida, 48 percent of voters said transgender people should have the right to use the bathroom of their choice, while 44 percent of voters disagreed. In Ohio and Pennsylvania, voters were also divided. Forty-eight percent of voters in Ohio said transgender bathroom use should not be allowed, compared to 43 percent who said it shouldn’t. And in Pennsylvania, 49 percent were in favor of permitting transgender people to use the restroom of their choice, compared to 43 percent who were opposed. More than half of voters in each state were opposed to a mandate requiring public schools to allow transgender people to use bathrooms and locker rooms consistent with their gender identity, according to the survey. Quinnipiac surveyed roughly 1000 voters from each state earlier this month.
