Math Problem?

Math Problem?
The Christian Post: The percentage of American adults openly identifying as lesbian, gay, bisexual or transgender has increased from 3.5 percent in 2012 to 4.1 percent in 2016, a change that is led by the millennials, according to a Gallup poll. The poll also found that LGBT identification remains largely stable or has slightly declined among Generation X, baby boomers and traditionalists.

From 8.3 million U.S. adults identifying themselves as LGBT in 2012, the number has now risen to 10 million, says Gallup's 2016 poll, which is based on telephone interviews with a random sample of 1.6 million adults as part of Gallup Daily tracking. (emphases mine)
Maybe my math's wrong, but … 10 million out of a population of 324,118,787 (in 2016) comes out to be …

3% (3.08, to take it to two-past-the-decimal-point).
