Women and the Midterm Elections Poll

Benenson Strategy Group (BSG)  and the Women & Politics Institute at American University’s School of Public Affairs partnered on a post-election poll which highlights women’s thoughts and feelings on a myriad of topics – from President Trump, to the issues that shaped their Midterm vote, to the optimism created by a record number of women being elected to congress.

The study reveals a strong dislike among women voters for President Trump, shows the impact of his rhetoric, and details how he factored into their voting decisions in November. The study also surfaces what an increased representation in Congress means to women, what they want their leaders to focus on, and their expectations for progress.
