http://rawstory.com/news/2007/Russert_Independent_men_flee_from_Hillary_1108.html "Tim Russert discussed the poll with Matt Lauer on Thursday's Today Show. "It's remarkable," Russert commented. "Independent men flee from Hillary Clinton and go to Rudy Giuliani." He noted that Clinton leads Giuliani by 53% to 38% among women, while the figures for men are almost exactly the opposite." *** While some of the difference might be explained in that woman are a little more liberal or perhaps have extra loyalty to their gender, the gap seems awfully large. Obviously many men do not trust Hillary and many women do, and clearly it's not based only on facts. There are emotional issues involved, and I don't think it' a left/right issue; this diagram, which shows which states have had female governors, suggests that red and blue states are roughly equally open to electing women: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_female_state_governors_in_the_United_States (Purple means the state has at different times had a female Dem and Repub governor.) Any thoughts?
