Last week, Pew released a poll asking voters if they knew four facts about the GOP presidential primary candidates. What really shocked me was the stark contrast between men and women:
Across the board, regardless of political affiliation, women seem to know far less than men. Unfortunately, the crosstabs aren’t available, but this is really puzzling. If I understand the results correctly, they are demographically weighted–Pew didn’t ask a bunch of young, non-Tea Party women, and older Tea Party men and then fail to adjust for this. Given that four different questions were asked, and the pattern holds across all four, I don’t think this can be a fluke.
Very weird. Discuss.
