"Would Americans vote for a gay man to be president?" Fox News journalist Geraldo Rivera asked 40 minutes into an episode of his podcast, "Roadkill With Geraldo."

President Donald Trump now faces the second stage of a political process that could see him removed from office. Mr Trump became only the third president in US history to be impeached after two votes in the Hunter worked for a Ukrainian company when Joe Biden was US vice- president .

"I think that it doesn't seem to be hurting Pete 'Boot-edge-edge,'" Trump said of the openly gay presidential contender, slowly using the phonetic pronunciation of the former South Bend, Indiana, mayor's Maltese surname.

"But there would certainly be a group," the president repeated, "that probably wouldn't. But you and I would not be in that group."

"We would not," Rivera responded.

Trump has lots of company: A 2019 Gallup poll found that 76 percent of Americans would vote for a gay or lesbian presidential candidate — just behind the 80 percent who said they would vote for an evangelical Christian. Other groups are rated as more acceptable: Over 90 percent of Americans said they would vote for a black, Catholic, Hispanic, female or Jewish candidate.

Mitt Romney’s 2012 presidential campaign claimed envy motivated the Utah Republican to vote to convict President Trump on abuse of power. © Provided by Washington Examiner“I believe Mitt Romney is motivated by bitterness and jealously that [Trump] accomplished what he has failed to do multiple times,” Rick Gorka, who is now a communications director for the Republican National Committee, tweeted Wednesday. “He has betrayed his Party and millions of voters,” he added.

But there are groups less popular for electoral politics than gay people: Muslims, atheists, socialists, people over 70 and people under 40 (a group that includes Buttigieg, 38).

When Gallup began asking Americans about their willingness to vote for a gay or lesbian presidential candidate in 1978, just 26 percent said "yes."

Last May, though, Trump complained on Twitter that Fox News was "wasting airtime on Mayor Pete."

In that same thread, Trump made a prediction about Buttigieg, who he referred to using the name of the iconic Mad magazine cover boy: "Alfred E. Newman will never be President!"

By December, however, Trump appeared to marvel at Buttigieg's unexpected success: "Can you believe he is doing well, he is like the leading fundraiser," he said of Buttigieg during a 90-minute rally in Hershey, Pennsylvania. "I dream about him, it's true."
