Women Voters Anxious Ahead of US Elections

Women Voters Anxious Ahead of US Elections



Nicholas and Ibrahim appeared carefree as they conquer playground in northern Virginia.
You ok? I’m okay.
But their mothers, like many other women across the country, are concerned about economic and national security issues.
And both political parties know women in Tuesday's midterm elections will likely determine who controls the U.S. Senate and some governors' mansions.
Alabama visitor Nancy Capiello said she's not planning to vote.
“This day and age I feel like I should be more concerned with my immediate family and unfortunately those other influences go by the wayside, because I feel like no one is doing anything to save us or protect us in any way, shape or form.”
Hawa Coulibaly of Virginia said she does plan to vote, and has been paying close attention.
“I am concerned about what’s going on but I feel that our government has control of it. I feel that the government is doing the best they can at this point.”
These responses from the playground reflect what women are telling pollsters. Margie Omero, is with the Purple Strategies public research firm in Virginia, she called the mood “miserable.”
“People are feeling a little bit better economically, or at least that hasn’t worsened, but you’ve seen economic anxiety be replaced by worries about government dysfunction and international instability - ISIS or Ebola or international volatility, school violence, school shootings, crime.”
Neil Newhouse, sex pollster with Public Opinion Strategies in Virginia, agreed and said this could be bad news for Democrats.
“We’ve had now 114 straight months where Americans believe their country is headed in the wrong direction. This is the longest period of sustain pessimism that we’ve seen for like 30 years in this country.”
Newhouse said that there has been a gender gap in U.S. politics for decades.
“Men are significantly more Republican, women are more Democratic and you know, men vote more probably economic issues, women vote more personal security issues.”
And even within the group of women voters, there is another divide, said Isabel Sawhill of the Brookings Institution.
“Married women actually are more likely to vote Republican than Democratic, whereas unmarried women are much more likely to vote for the Democrats so there’s not just a gender divide that tends to favor the Democrats overall.”
As Nancy and Hawa told VOA on the playground, many American women say they would like for Congress and the president to work together to address their concerns. Cindy Saine, VOA News, on Capitol Hill.
