ABOUT THE POLL

The American Women’s Political Engagement Poll was developed through a partnership between Bustle Trends Group and VoteRunLead to shed light on how women really feel about running for office, political affiliations, and their engagement leading into the 2018 midterm elections.

  • track the top issues for American women, across ages;

  • understand their political ambitions and motivations, from the full political spectrum; and

  • better understand the concerns of women stepping up to vote, to run for office and to lead.

Methodology
N = 1,000
Demographics: W18-49, U.S.
Field dates: 2/12 - 2/14
Survey Platform: Pollfish
