POLITICS: Liberal women seen as weak on terrorism issues, study finds
A new study from UC Riverside suggests that Hillary Clinton may have two big obstacles working against her going into the 2016 election: she's a woman and she's a liberal.
Those two traits combined make voters think twice about supporting her when terrorism is in the news, according to a news release from UCR about the study.
The study cites researchers from UCR, Tulane University and Vanderbilt University who have learned female democratic presidential hopefuls are viewed by voters as weaker and less capable than their male and republican counterparts when dealing with terrorists, the release says.
The study suggests that men are traditionally viewed by voters as stronger leaders than women and conservatives are thought of as more capable in terms of leadership, national security and foreign policy than liberals.
"When terrorism is in the headlines, these voter perceptions hurt women candidates in the Democratic Party but not the male candidates whose gender counteracts the party's weak reputation on national security," the release says.
The GOP, on the other hand, has a "reputation of being tough on terrorism" that "appears to inoculate its female office-seekers from the weak-on-national-security stereotype ascribed to democratic women," the release says.
Therefore, Carly Fiorina would have been insulated from the perception of weakness during her presidential bid because her womanliness is counteracted by the fact that she's a conservative.
OMG. There are some women out there who hate their own and think some refugee is going to love her or something. WHAT IDIOTS.
This just in from a liberal woman...I feel bad for people who die in the us because of terrorism, but people die in car accidents too every day..
Just look at the moronic young women volunteering at the EU shelters for illegal islamo males. The quick and the dead...just like when the Berlin Wall was up and running.
Man, I wish I could get paid to conduct a “study” like this.
....I thought people would see her as weak on terror because she sold our national intelligence secrets to our enemies....
Why does this Merkel think that allowing hordes of anti-democratic dupes of fascism is a way for “Democracy” to be the “answer to terrorism”?
All this is doing is letting dupes of fascism vote in what will amount to at some juncture to be the final election. She is equating open borders with democracy. Then why not just let all of China vote in the German elections?
This is beyond stupid.
Translated for Clarity:
you mean the same liberal women who think abortion is okay? Oh gee Davy, I wonder why?
They can’t cook worth a sh*t either. They just want to graze all of the time.
Leftist women would be first to knuckle under, don the burka, submit to harems, and submit to being slapped around by the patriarchal muzzies, were the muzzies to prevail.
Feminists, at heart, want to be pushed around and put in their place by third world men.
Liberal women are weak on ANY and ALL threats because their emotions dictate that hugs and kisses can conquer evil.
“Feminists, at heart, want to be pushed around and put in their place by third world men.”
What on earth made you reach that conclusion?
