Most Remain Willing to Vote For a Woman President

Friday, June 10, 2016

With Hillary Clinton poised to become the first woman nominated by a major U.S. political party to be president, most voters still say they’re willing to vote for a woman president and are slightly more confident that those close to them will do the same. But voters are less enthusiastic about a women candidate in general if her opponent is a man.

A new Rasmussen Reports national telephone and online survey finds that 76% of Likely U.S. Voters say they personally would be willing to vote for a woman president, although that's down slightly from 79% a year ago and 82% in June 2011. Fifteen percent (15%) are not willing to vote for a woman for president,  while nine percent (9%) are undecided. (To see survey question wording, click here.)

The survey of 1,000 Likely Voters was conducted on June 8-9, 2016 by Rasmussen Reports. The margin of sampling error is +/- 3 percentage points with a 95% level of confidence. Field work for all Rasmussen Reports surveys is conducted by Pulse Opinion Research, LLC. See methodology.
