According to a poll from research and data analytics firm YouGov, 11% of respondents “strongly support” the idea that Bitcoin should be used as legal tender in the United States and a further 16% of respondents would “somewhat support” it.

The poll, which queried 4,912 U.S. residents, indicated that a larger number of Democrat respondents support the proposition than Republicans. Around 29% of Democrats stated they either strongly or somewhat support recognizing BTC as legal tender compared to 26% of Republicans.
