People who voted for Trump think men are more discriminated against than LGBTQ people, women, African-Americans, or Mexican-Americans according to a new poll from The Economist.

The poll asked, “How much discrimination do the following people face in America today?” and respondents were given the options of “none at all,” “not much,” “a fair amount” and “a great deal” for all of them.

49 percent of Trump voters said men face either “a great deal” or “a fair amount” of discrimination. 41 percent of Trump voters said LGBT people face the same amount of bias.

42 percent of Trump voters said Mexican-Americans face “a great deal” or “a fair amount” of discrimination. Only 38 percent said the same thing about African-Americans.

And while the idea that men are the targets of discrimination is almost half of the responding Trump voters, only 30 percent thought women faced “a great deal” or “a fair amount” of discrimination.

The poll surveyed 1500 Americans and has a margin of error of +/- 3.1 percent.
