1. Regardless of who you support, which candidate do you trust to do a better job addressing women’s issues – Obama or Romney? Why?

    "Barack Obama.  Democrats/liberals usually focus on those issues more than Republicans."

     Scott Minichiello, Financial Advisor

      Age 29

      Conservative Republican

    "Obama would better support women’s rights everywhere."

     Venise Lyons, Student

      Age 22

      Democrat

    "Barack Obama because of the legislation he supports…Evidence with the passage of Obamacare and the stipulation that women can’t be charged more for health care with things like birth control tells me he seems to support women’s issues."

    Pascale, Coordinator for a Nonprofit Organization

    Age 23

    Democrat
