Survey Indicates 5% Of Canadians are LGBT

Joe.My.God called attention to a recent poll in Canada which indicates that 5% of respondents said that they were LGBT.
Younger Canadians are far more likely to say they are lesbian, gay, bisexual or transgender than older Canadians, with 10% of those aged 18 to 34 answering the question with a “yes,” compared to 2% or 3% in the four older age categories. 
Asked whether they are lesbian, gay, bisexual or transgender, Liberal voters were least likely to say “yes,” at just 1%, whereas 3% of Conservative voters answered “yes.” Compare that to Canada’s three newer parties — the NDP, Green and Bloc — with rates ranging from 7% to 10%.
I wonder what the results would look like if we did a poll like this in the United States?
