Americans Insanely Overestimate The Number of Gays

Hmmm. Wonder where Americans would get this idea?

The Atlantic reports:

In surveys conducted in 2002 and 2011, pollsters at Gallup found that members of the American public massively overestimated how many people are gay or lesbian. In 2002, a quarter of those surveyed guessed upwards of a quarter of Americans were gay or lesbian (or "homosexual," the third option given). By 2011, that misperception had only grown, with more than a third of those surveyed now guessing that more than 25 percent of Americans are gay or lesbian. Women and young adults were most likely to provide high estimates, approximating that 30 percent of the population is gay. Overall, "U.S. adults, on average, estimate that 25 percent of Americans are gay or lesbian," Gallup found. Only 4 percent of all those surveyed in 2011 and about 8 percent of those surveyed in 2002 correctly guessed that fewer than 5 percent of Americans identify as gay or lesbian.
The Atlantic says the actual number of less than 2 percent. So why do so many think that homosexuals make up such a large swath of the population? Maybe because we have agenda-driven leftists in charge of our media and our schools.

Yup. That'll do it.
