58% of Republican voters, 28% of Democrat voters, and 38% of independent voters said Anheuser-Busch’s use of Dylan Mulvaney makes them less likely to purchase Bud Light. 23% of Democratic voters and 17% of both Republican and the independent voters said they’re more likely to buy Bud Light due to the Mulvaney promotion. 48% of Democratic voters, 23% of Republican voters, and 38% of independent voters said the transgender promotion won’t have much of an impact.

50% of individuals making between $30,000 and $50,000 annually stated they’re less likely to buy Bud Light due to the transgender promotion. By contrast, only 28% of individuals making north of $200,000 annually are less likely to buy Bud Light owing to the transgender promotion.
Overall, Americans are getting tired of corporate America’s descent into wokism. It’s only going to take concerted private and political action to make these corporations start focusing on productive activity and not delving into dumb culture war battles.
