Considering that Roy Moore, who's leading the polls for the election in Alabama, has been accused of being a sexual predator targeting underage women, and considering that the elected president of the USA, Donald Trump, is himself someone who has admitted to groping and spying on naked, underage models, and even said that he would like to have sex with his own daughter, my question is, to what extent is pedophilia an accepted sexual orientation in the United States?
I am from Denmark, and two politicians such as Roy Moore and Donald Trump would never have been elected in any major election in my country. Pedophilia is simply not accepted here from a moral standpoint.
However, considering the recent ongoings in the US, I am wondering whether the culture in the United States is different?
I expect appropiate answers to include references to studies (polls) made of the US population in regards to the topic. Any answers that are opinion-based will be ignored.
Note that I do believe this question is on-topic, since the moral standards and culture of a country dictates whom it elects as its politicians which in turn dictates which policies it enforces. For example, I find it highly relevant that a senator, who may possibly have a say on issues such as punishments for rape or the age of consent, is a pedophile.
