Honestly, what this suggests to me is that the “real” figure is somewhere in the neighborhood of 6% +. Younger Americans have been raised in a world where it is much more okay to admit this than those over 65 (and less, as well). The alternative hypothesis that people become less LGBT as they age just doesn’t hold a lot of water.
There’s also a bunch more interesting cross-tabs. Definitely worth checking out the whole report.
