Embracing radical transgenderism for children may not prove to be an electoral boon for Democrats.
A recent poll by the Convention of States Action and the right-leaning pollster Trafalgar Group indicates the conservative effort to reframe the debate to block such procedures for minors as a way to protect children is having an effect.
A poll released by the groups, according to a report Saturday by JustTheNews.com, revealed that 78.7 percent of respondents believe children should be required to wait until they are at least 18 before using puberty blockers and undergoing permanent sex change procedures.
In that camp were 96.8 percent of Republicans, 84.6 percent of unaffiliated voters and even 53.2 percent of Democrats.
Democrats, by the way, were the biggest subset of those surveyed in the poll, with 39 percent of respondents.
The results run counter to policies and ideas promoted by leftist Democrats.

For example, Democratic Gov. Gavin Newsom recently enacted a bill to make California a “sanctuary state” for trans procedures for children, including not informing parents of their child’s activities within his state.
In Florida, Democratic gubernatorial candidate Charlie Crist has vowed to overturn the policies of incumbent Republican Gov. Ron DeSantis.
Crist would reverse DeSantis’ ban on taxpayer-funded trans procedures for children, allow school districts and teachers to establish lesson plans for gender ideology and sexual orientation even in grades K-3 and treat parents who object to or resist people advocating that their kids change sexes as child abusers, subject to being investigated by state authorities for practicing “conversion therapy.”
On the other hand, the poll appears to validate the efforts to protect children by DeSantis and Republicans in places like Oklahoma, Texas, Arkansas, Tennessee, and Michigan.
Mark Meckler, president of the Convention of States Action group, told Just The News that the poll shows Americans largely reject “the idea that young people have to be 16 to drive, 18 to vote, and 21 to drink, and yet can undergo life-altering medical procedures in middle school.”
