Red Wall voters aren’t fans of brighter views and disagree that we “should call pregnant women pregnant people,” polls show
- Red Wall voters don’t agree with woke views like those that Penny Mordaunt has said
- Ms Mordaunt has criticized the British Empire and supported trans women
- She distanced herself from her bright-eyed views from the past during the leadership challenge
Half of respondents in 33 constituencies in the North, Midlands and Wales rejected the idea of a ‘trans woman is just as much a woman as a woman who was biologically born a woman,” with only 24 percent agreeing.
A total of 73 percent disagreed with people referring to pregnant women as pregnant people, according to the Daily Telegraph poll.
Miss Mordaunt previously commented on the “legacy of destruction” unleashed on other nations by the British Empire – but 48 per cent disagreed that the colonial era should “mainly be remembered” for this.
A spokesman said: “These are not Penny’s views.”
Miss Mordaunt, the former Equality Secretary, is currently under scrutiny for her stance on gender self-identification. She has previously told MPs, “Trans men are men, trans women are women.”

She was accused last week of “not standing up for women” by her former rival Suella Braverman.
Miss Mordaunt has also tried to distance herself from her previous comments on gender by saying that transgender women are “legally but not biologically” women.
She also doesn’t seem to keep up with Rote Wand voters when it comes to issues surrounding the language of the past that might cause offense in modern society.
More than half of voters disagreed that shows like Dad’s Army and It Ain’t Half Hot Mum “present old-fashioned views on things like race and are a source of embarrassment.”
But in her co-authored book Greater Britain: After the Storm, Miss Mordaunt said the latter BBC sitcom, which aired in the 1970s, was “embarrassing”.
The book states the show features a “full house bingo card of … occasional racism, homophobia, white privilege, colonialism, transphobia, bullying, misogyny and sexual harassment.”
She also commented on the “legacy of destruction” the British Empire unleashed on various nations – but 48 percent of Red Wall voters disagree that the colonial era should “mainly be remembered” for this.
A spokesman for Miss Mordaunt said: “These are not Penny’s views and it is wrong to suggest that they are.”
