Recently, the MOMocrats partnered with personal polling site The Skinny Scoop to develop an on-line poll to find out how politics and political discussions impact women's lives. We posted a ten-question non-partisan "Quiz" to find out: (1) What issues are important in how we will be voiting in the 2010 midterm elections; (2) How involved women are in politics, from voting to following the news; (3) How politics affects their personal relationships with partners and friends; and (4) Whether gender plays a role in how we vote.
Not surprisingly, the economy tops the list of issues that women are most concerned about this election cycle. At least one of the commenters felt that only being able to choose one topic was difficult, since some of the topics are inter-related and important to everyone.
Somewhat more surprising was the fact that 36% of women get their political news/info from social media sites, rather than traditional media outlets. Candidates should probably be paying more attention to their Twitter and Facebook accounts than they probably are. Of course, the best source for news online are the MOMocrats blog, Facebook, and Twitter, but I'm a little biased on that front.
