In what Gallup bills as a “special report” based on more than 120,000 interviews, the pollster found that 3.4 percent of U.S. adults said “yes” when asked if they identify as lesbian, gay, bisexual or transgender.

“These results are based on responses to the question, ‘Do you, personally, identify as lesbian, gay, bisexual, or transgender?’ included in 121,290 Gallup Daily tracking interviews conducted between June 1 and Sept. 30, 2012,” Gallup explained.
