A poll released on Sunday by CBS/New York Times found that some 92 percent of Americans would vote for a qualified woman president. Moreover, 55 percent think America is ready for a woman president. This is the highest number recorded since CBS began asking the question in 1996.
Another recent poll conducted last fall by Roper Public Affairs found that 79 percent of Americans would be comfortable with a woman in the White House. The poll was commissioned by The White House Project and released to coincide with the premiere of the smash hit “Commander-in-Chief.” “These poll numbers demonstrate America’s increasing comfort with a female commander in chief. While ABC’s show is fiction, the message from this poll is real – American voters recognize the strength and value of women’s leadership in the highest of offices,” said Marie C. Wilson, president of The White House Project, of the Roper poll.
