May 2015 YouGov Poll

YouGov’s latest poll asks respondents whether or not they believe people they know would vote for a woman president; two-thirds of Democrats and a majority of independents say most of the people they know would vote for a woman, but only 41% of Republicans agree. The poll also asks whether respondents hope for or believe there will be a woman president in their lifetime. The majority of Democrats both hope for and believe there will be a woman president in their lifetime; a majority of Republicans believe there will be a woman president in their lifetime, but a minority of Republicans express hope for a woman president, likely indicative of the prominence of Hillary Clinton’s candidacy.
