CNN Poll: GOP out of touch with women

In the shadow of the House Republican fixation with women’s health, their endless votes to repeal and undermine the Affordable Care Act, and their refusal to advance any economic agenda that would benefit America’s working women and their families – is anyone surprised by this poll or these headlines?

CNN: CNN Poll: Majority say GOP out of touch with women

UPI: Majority of Americans perceive GOP as out of touch with women

KRMG: Poll: GOP out of touch with women

Huffington Post: Most Women Say The GOP Doesn’t Understand Their Problems, Poll Finds

From the CNN/ORC poll:

55 percent of Americans do not think the Republican party understands the problems and concerns of women.

This finding holds across all age groups:

And regions of the country:

And income levels:

51 percent of 18 – 34 year olds

57 percent of those in the Northeast

60 percent of those making less than $50,000 a year

54 percent of 35 – 49 year olds

56 percent of those in the Midwest

53 percent of those making $50,000 or more a year

60 percent of 50 – 64 year olds

55 percent of those in the South

56 percent of those 65 years old and older

51 percent of those in the West

 

How can House Republicans show they care about the problems and concerns of women?  They can act like it and pass the When Women Succeed, America Succeeds: An Economic Agenda for Women and Families which will enable women to achieve greater economic security, raise wages for working women and their families and allow working parents to support and care for their families.  Among the policies included in this agenda:

  • Paycheck Fairness
  • Raising the Minimum Wage
  • Supporting Women Entrepreneurs and Women-Owned Small Businesses
  • Paid Family and Medical Leave
  • Paid Sick Leave
  • The President’s Preschool and Early Head Start & Child Care Initiative
  • Promoting Access to Affordable and High Quality Child Care
