Facts & Figures

Don't miss the latest facts and figures at Presidential Gender Watch. Here are some recent highlights:
In the latest Quinnipiac poll in Iowa, Donald Trump leads Ted Cruz in Iowa with 7 point gender gap (33% men, 26% women). IA GOP women view Cruz as more honest and trustworthy than Trump (76% Cruz,  58% Trump), and they believe Cruz is more likely to care about the needs and problems of people like them (75% Cruz, 56% Trump).

The New York
Times reports that attacks on Bill Clinton may prove helpful to Hillary Clinton. Donald Trump considers the former President's past fair game, along with Secretary Clinton's responses to it, but whether that will help or hurt her remains to be seen.

Parents of daughters support Hillary Clinton more than parents of sons, per The Washington Post. This finding is consistent with other studies showing that "parents of daughters are more supportive of feminist positions than parents of only sons."
