Buttigieg: It's 'Almost Certain' America Has Had a Gay President

And I think if you've met one gay person, you've met one gay person. In 2020, we could get our first female president or our first openly gay president.

The Mayor of South Bend made the comments after he said how proud he was of being gay and marrying his husband, Chasten. "And we now rating had improbable presidents who rating been younger". We've had excellent presidents who have been liberal. "I would imagine we've probably had excellent presidents who were gay - we just didn't know which ones".

Speaking with Mike Allen of Axios in an interview broadcast on HBO, Buttigieg also admitted that he was depressed for a year after his seven-month deployment to Afghanistan in 2014.

"You believe that we've had a gay commander in chief?"

A recent Des Moines Register poll showed Buttigieg placing fourth among caucusgoers, right on the heels of Massachusetts Senator Elizabeth Warren: "Twenty-four percent of Iowa's likely Democratic caucusgoers say former vice president Biden is their first choice for president".

The mayor explained he would talk about his policies and said: 'We have had excellent Presidents who have been young.

"I mean, statistically, it's nearly certain".

According to Gallup, 4.5% of Americans in 2018 identified as LGBTQ.

And a June 11 poll by Quinnipiac found that in a hypothetical matchup between Buttigieg and Donald Trump, 47% of voters preferred Buttigieg, versus 42% for Trump. "But one can only assume that's the case".

It's been speculated that our only confirmed bachelor president James Buchanan was gay, and was in a relationship with politician William Rufus King. Coleman broke off their engagement in 1819, after noting in letters to Buchanan unspecified rumors about the future President. Whether or not someone can do the job is more important than their sexual orientation or their age.
