April 2015 Shriver Report Poll

A Hart Research Associates poll conducted for the Shriver Report explores the role of American men, but includes questions about respondents’ comfort with a woman president. The poll finds that 64% percent of men say they’d be somewhat or very comfortable with the idea of a woman president. The men most likely to be comfortable with the idea of a woman president include African American men (77%), Hispanic men (72%), and men with a college degree or higher (74%). Just 41% of men between 18 and 29 years old say they’d be “very comfortable” with a female – the lowest percentage of any age group. The data were based on an online survey of 813 men from April 10-13.
