According to a new survey, adults who voted for President Donald Trump believe men are discriminated against more than women, gays, and minorities.

The survey, conducted by YouGov and The Economist, asked 1,500 adults across the U.S. a series of questions from October 14th to October 16th.

Respondents were asked “How much discrimination do the following people face in American today?” and were offered a list of different demographic groups or the options “none at all,” “not much,” “a fair amount,” or “a great deal.”

Forty-nine percent of voters who said they voted for Trump said men face either “a great deal” (18 percent) or “a fair amount” (31 percent) of discrimination.

The same group found LGBTQ people (41 percent), women (30 percent), African-Americans (38 percent), and Mexican-Americans (42 percent) faced either “a great deal” or a “fair amount” of discrimination.

Only 11 percent of Hillary Clinton voters said men faced discrimination. Clinton voters thought LGBTQ people (92 percent), Arab-Americans (91 percent), African-Americans (90 percent), Mexican-Americans (90 percent), women (88 percent), Muslims (95 percent) and immigrants (92 percent) faced “a great deal” or a “fair amount” of discrimination.
