“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.
