A YouGov survey from May 2019 found that nearly half (49%) of US adults believe it is unacceptable for adoption/foster agencies to decline to place a child with a same-sex couple for religious reasons. More than one-third (36%) say this practice is acceptable.

President Donald Trump’s supporters likely welcome this move. 

Nearly two-thirds (64%) of people who voted for Trump in 2016 say they believe it’s acceptable for faith-based adoption agencies to decline to place a child with a same-sex couple. Far fewer (27%) Trump voters say this idea is unacceptable.
