Women voters who care about the top four issues – the economy, health care, education and jobs – vote overwhelmingly for Democrats. Most striking, Democrats hold a 35-point advantage with women voters who care about jobs and a 26-percent advantage when asked which party is willing to compromise. House Republicans say jobs and the economy are their top priority.
Andrea Bozek, a spokesman for the National Republican Congressional Committee, said the party’s candidates “across the country are speaking directly to women voters both on the campaign trail and in their television ads.”
But in Washington, Republican policies have failed to sway women – in fact, they appear to have turned women off. For example, the focus groups and polls found that women “believe that ‘enforcing equal pay for equal work’ is the policy that would ‘help women the most.’”
