    "naysayer" ist mir im AE schon mehrfach begegnet. Im BE ist aber nach meiner Erfahrung "obstructionist" geläufiger.
    So wird auch im BE eine Neinstimme bei einer Abstimmung als "no", im AE aber als "nay" bezeichnet.
    Sind wie gesagt reine Erfahrungswerte, eine "offizielle" Differenzierung, die ich mit Quellen belegen könnte, habe ich noch nicht entdeckt.

    Mir ist im BE noch kein "nosayer" begegnet.

    "Naysayer" ist jemand, der eine bestimmte Einstellung hat, "obstructionist" ist jemand, der agiert, der Dinge zu verhindern sucht. Das ist nicht dasselbe.

    Ich sehe keinen Anhaltspunkt, dass es in BE weniger "naysayers" als in AE gäbe.

    So wird auch im BE eine Neinstimme bei einer Abstimmung als "no", im AE aber als "nay" bezeichnet.

    As a correction from an actual AE NES: While it may be true that some bodies use "nay" to express a negative vote (I believe that is what is used in the US Congress) – and "aye" and "yea" are also sometimes used to express a positive vote – none of these are by far universal when expressing votes in the US. It depends on the tradition of the body.

    Both M-W and Lexico contain entries for "aye," "yea," and "nay" (see links above) and indicate that they are old-fashioned or archaic. Both also contain example sentences where they are used in the context of voting.
