American Vegans Backing Biden over Trump

World’s number 1 dating app for vegans surveys American users to reveal: American Vegans are Backing Biden in the elections.

American Vegans Backing Biden
  • 75% of American vegans are backing Biden and Harris
  • Only 6.5% back Trump and Pence
  • Support for a third party candidate among American vegans outstrips Trump, with 18.5% of the share

A new survey conducted by Veggly, the world’s leading vegan and vegetarian dating app, has revealed how American vegans overwhelmingly support Joe Biden and Kamala Harris for president when compared to Donald Trump and Mike Pence. The data shows how 75% of vegans in the US support Biden and Harris, and only 6.5% are backing Trump and Pence.

The data also shows how many vegans in the US back a third party option instead Trump, with almost a fifth (18.5%) selecting the option.

Possible reasons for these results include:

  • Trump’s policies regarding climate change and animal welfare, which have angered vegan and environmental campaigners in the four years he has been in charge.
  • Trump’s regulations and laws regarding animal cruelty. In 2018, Trump lifted a ban put in place by the Obama administration covering animal cruelty. The original ban, set in 2015, provided better care for factory farmed animals, ensuring that they were treated more humanely.

Commenting on the new data, Founder of Veggly, Alex Felipelli, said:

“Most vegans are pro-environment and want better protection for animals, so it’s no surprise the Trump administration has very little support from this community. It’s also interesting to see how nearly a fifth would choose a third party; it just goes to show how many people aren’t impressed with either Biden or Trump at the moment.”

How Veganism Combats Climate Change

Ever wondered if it’s real that veganism combats climate change? This research leaves no doubt!

Nature Sustainability (one of the world’s leading and most respected scientific journals) has published a new report showing the incredibly positive impact plant-based diets can have on climate change.

How veganism combats climate change

We’ve shared the abstract/summary below, but here’s a brief version and explanation for you:

This new study has revealed the huge ‘carbon opportunity cost of keeping livestock’. But what does that mean?

It means there is a huge amount of carbon from the atmosphere that land could draw down/capture (using trees/plants etc.) if it were not being used for animal farming/livestock production. It also means there is an ecological opportunity cost – for example: the woodlands, wetlands, wolves, wild herbivores and thriving ecosystems the land could support if it were rewilded and turned away from animal farming.

The carbon opportunity cost of animal-sourced food production on land

Veganism Combats Climate Change: How do I explain to my friends, family and colleagues?

The research shows us that it is far better to use land for plants (e.g. trees, grass, crops) to draw down carbon from the atmosphere, rather than farming animals for meat/dairy etc.

The impact we can have by switching our food production to plant-based/vegan diets is even larger than previously thought. The report explains how a shift to plant-based diets could enable us to draw down over 500 gigatons of CO2e*… that’s 500 billion tons! This would give us a fighting chance of limiting global warming to 1.5℃.

So there you have it! From an environmental point of view, this is the strongest argument in favor of plant-based diets we’ve ever seen!

Of course, there are many other reasons to leave animals off your plate (animal welfare, food resources, health etc.). But this one is impossible to ignore: the future of our planet depends on it. So make sure you have it up your sleeve next time someone challenges veganism/ plant-based living and asks you to explain it all: Veganism combats climate change and stops global warming!

Veggly is here to help

That being said… we hope you don’t have to explain veganism all the time and you find someone who shares your love of animals and our planet! And that’s why Veggly exists!
