According to a new YouGov/Economist survey, parents with daughters are 14 percent more likely to support Hillary Clinton than parents who only have sons.

The Washington Post goes into more detail about how gender-based appeal has become a mainstay of Clinton’s campaign strategy, for obvious reasons—and how this is a departure from her strategy in 2008.

Parents with multiple children are also more inclined to support Clinton if at least one of their children is female, and the Post adds that the effect crosses demographics, holding among white, black and Hispanic parents alike.

DISCUSSION

Any time I hear news like this, I find it so disheartening. It is literally so hard for some to think of women as people, unless they have one of their very own. Except every single fucking person has a woman in their life. Good, I’m glad something can make people open their eyes and see inequality, but I just wish it wasn’t so extreme.
