      The "gender gap" refers to differences between women and men in political attitudes and voting choices. A gender gap has been apparent in both party identification and evaluations of the performances of recent presidents. Party Identification:A gender gap in party identification has been evident since the early 1980s. Larger proportions of women than men are Democrats. Presidential Performance Ratings:A gender gap also is evident in ratings of presidential performance. In general, women are less likely then men to evaluate favorably the job performance of Republican presidents, and women are more likely than men to evaluate favorably the job performance of Democratic Presidents. Women generally have been less likely than men to approve of the way recent Republican Presidents (George W. Bush, George H.W. Bush, Ronald Reagan) have handled their job as President.

      The data used for this article are from Voter News Service (VNS) which conducted exit polls in 65 races. VNS reports an average margin of error of four percentage points for its statewide polls; the margin of error for part of the sample (e.g. female or male voters) may be greater.In 72% (47 of 65) races where Voter News Service (VNS) conducted exit polls on election day, there were gender gaps of at least four percentage points - that is, a difference of at least four percentage points between the proportion of women’s and men’s votes garnered by the winner. There were gender gaps of this magnitude in 70% (23 of 33) gubernatorial races and in 75% (24 of 32) senatorial races. In all but 3 of the 47 races with gender gaps, female voters were more supportive of Democratic candidates than were male voters. Winner elected by men and women depends on higher percentage of exit polls contribution to the the winning candidate. If contribution of women is higher for winning candidate then its women elected candidate and similarly if men contribution is higher for winning candidate then its men elected candidate.

      The “gender gap” refers to differences between women and men in political attitudes and voting choices. A gender gap has been apparent in voting behavior, party identification, evaluations of performances of recent presidents, and attitudes toward some public policy issues. A gender gap is apparent in the way women and men respond to a variety of contemporary issues. Among many issues gender gaps have been observed, recent polls have found that, compared with men, women are: - more likely to favor a more activist role for government; - more supportive of programs to guarantee health care and basic social services; - more supportive of restrictions on firearms; - more supportive of same-sex marriage; and - more likely to favor legal abortion without restrictions. In addition to these issue-based trends, there is also a gender gap evident in how men and women feel about the outlook for the country. Recent polls have found that, compared with men, women are slightly more optimistic and/or satisfied with the direction in which the country is going.
