Female Politicians Get Higher Marks Than Men In Latest NJ Poll

NEW JERSEY (CBS) – The latest Quinnipiac University poll shows that New Jersey voters would like to see more women in elective offices.

More than half of the Garden State voters who responded to the poll say there should be more women serving in high elected positions.  Among female respondents, 65 percent said there should be more women voted in.

“Who would be more likely to produce a sex scandal, a man politician or a woman politician?” Carroll said the survey asked. “Men win that dubious honor, overwhelmingly.”

Indeed, 80 percent said men would be more likely than women to produce a sex scandal while in office.

Besides those two issues, more of those polled said women would have the right priorities and would be problem solvers.

    No surpise here. Actually the greatest con in history has been that males are the superior sex but women have been the superior sex all along. Now that women are getting an equal chance finally, women are surpassing males in almost every area. I am a male and I would love to see women take control of society so they can clean up the mess we males have made. Nothing new here either, women have been cleaning up the mess males make throughout history.

    This is a funny story, even funnier because most of the women actually believe these flighty fantasies. For example: Few male politicians have any claims to honesty, intelligence or integrity, but on a percentage basis, I strongly suspect the female segment of this soap opera crowd would have a poorer showing then their soiled male counterparts. Meanwhile, sex scandals are just meaningless political fodder with no real bearing on the office holders effectiveness for fleecing the flock. I’m sure sex is an issue during campaign time; I don’t see Sarah or other females dressing down – sans make up, baggy clothes etc. And I’m sure that most women would approve of more women in political offices, I’d say that’s rather natural, but, why didn’t they ask men the same question. Personally, Sarah’s my cup of tea, but I’d never vote for her.
