The group of those who are both highly religious and negative about the morality of same-sex relationships in both states is a clear minority. On the other hand, our latest data show that about 3.7% of Americans identify as lesbian, gay, bisexual or transgender, an even smaller minority (The LGBT population in both Indiana and Arkansas is actually slightly higher than this national average by our estimates). So the battle we have been witnessing this week, in some ways, comes down to two minority groups in essence fighting for what they say are their fundamental rights. The pushback the laws received in Indiana and Arkansas and the subsequent modifications made to the laws in response to that pushback suggests that the LGBT minority and its allied interests won in this particular battle.
