Exclusive poll: Which women are most fired up for 2020
Democratic women are gearing up to become even more engaged around the 2020 election than they’ve been in recent years, according to a new survey by American University’s Women & Politics Institute and the Barbara Lee Family Foundation provided exclusively to Axios.
Why it matters: That’s a warning sign for the GOP, which has been losing female voters to the Democratic Party at significant rates over the last few cycles.
By the numbers: 39% of Democratic likely women voters said they’d be more involved in this year’s political issues or campaigns. That compares with just 23% of Republican women.
- Four in 10 millenial women and women of color said they planned to be more involved.
- In the 2018 midterms, 59% of women overall voted for a Democratic House candidate — with those rates reaching 73% for Latinas and 92% for black women.
- By a 2-to-1 margin, millennial women say they’ll vote for a Democratic candidate over a Republican candidate in the 2020 presidential election, per a poll from TheSkimm.
