Nearly 60 Percent of Republicans Don't Want A Woman President In Their Lifetime, Poll Finds [View all]

Nearly 60 Percent of Republicans Don't Want A Woman President In Their Lifetime, Poll Finds
BY TIM MARCIN ON 4/26/18 AT 10:02 AM

In 2016, Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton came as close as anyone in history to becoming the first female president of the United States. But she, of course, lost to Donald Trump.

A new poll from YouGov released Thursday found that a majority of Americans think, however, that they will see the first woman president in their lifetime. However, that doesn't mean everyone would like to see it happen.

Asked if they'd see a woman president in their lifetime, 20 percent of respondents said they "definitely will," while 43 percent said they "probably will." A total of 63 percent believed they would likely see a female president before they die.

A comfortable majority of Republicansó59 percentóresponded no, they don't hope to see a woman president in their lifetime, according to YouGov. In comparison, 89 percent of Democrats and 63 percent of independents responded that yes, they hoped to see a woman president before they died.
