June 2016 CBS News Poll

CBS asked voters if the U.S. is ready to elect a woman for president and if they hope to see a woman president in their lifetime. Four out of five voters say the U.S. is ready to elect a woman president, a doubling of the percentage that said so twenty years ago. Eighty-two percent of men, and 76% of women, agree, as do majorities of Republicans, Democrats and independents. Seventy-two percent of voters say they hope to see a woman president in their lifetime, up from 63% eight years ago. Seventy-six percent of women, and two thirds of men, hope to see this happen.
