|Emily's List Releases New Women's Monitor Poll; National Survey Shows Turning Out Women Voters is Key to Democratic Success in November|
October 7 - EMILYs List, the nations largest financial resource for pro-choice
Democratic women running for the House, Senate and governor, today released its most
recent Womens Monitor, a national survey of women voters. This is the 12th
Womens Monitor survey that EMILYs List has done.
EMILYs Lists Womens Monitor was conducted by pollsters Celinda Lake and Stan Greenberg. The survey helps observers of the 1998 election to assess the role of women voters in the upcoming elections.
"According to the Womens Monitor, women voters are key to Democrats success on Election Day," said Mary Beth Cahill, executive director of EMILYs List. "The race for Congress is very close. Democrats have a 4-point lead in the generic congressional contest, with that lead being produced by a strong Democratic performance among women."
"The immediate concern facing Democrats in November is turning out key groups of voters. Getting drop-off women voters to the polls those women who voted in 1996, but not in 1994 should be the top priority for Democrats," said Cahill.
The Womens Monitor also found that Democrats have made gains on issues important in this election, including health care, education, and retirement and Social Security.
Greenberg Quinlan Research in conjunction with Lake, Snell, Perry & Associates designed and administered this telephone survey conducted by professional interviewers. The survey, conducted October 1 October 4, 1998, reached 1,100 registered and likely voters nationwide. 572 women and 528 men were interviewed. The margin of error is +/- 3 points.
