Women Supportive but Skeptical of Clinton, Poll Says
Women view Senator Hillary Rodham Clinton more favorably than men do, but she still faces skepticism among some women, especially those who are older and those who are married, according to the latest New York Times/CBS News poll.
A majority of those polled [— both women and men —] said they thought she would win the White House if she captured the Democratic nomination.
Forty percent of voters view her unfavorably, more than for any of the other major candidates for president . . . .
The vast majority of all voters — more than 80 percent — think it very likely or somewhat likely that Mrs. Clinton will win the Democratic nomination. More than 60 percent think she is likely to win the presidency.
The support for Mrs. Clinton is most pronounced among unmarried and less affluent Democratic women.
