"Overall 38 percent of men, compared with 25 percent of women, consider themselves supporters of the Tea Party movement. Four in 10 men, compared with one-quarter of women, say they believe the Tea Party will change things for the better if its candidates are elected to Congress. More than half of men say Obama’s health-care law should be repealed, while just four in 10 women favor that option.
The poll finds that more than half of women likely voters approve of the job Obama is doing, including on health care, and say the economy will either get worse or stay the same if Republicans win control of the Congress. Men, by a margin of 58 percent to 39 percent, disapprove of Obama’s job performance on the economy.
Still, these female voters are less motivated this year to turn up at the polls to support Democratic candidates than their male counterparts are to support Republicans. Overall, 66 percent of women voters say they will definitely vote or already have voted, compared with 74 percent for men. Almost four in ten women voters say the election is exceptionally important, compared with almost half of men."
The article also states that women are not buying into the Tea Party hype either.
