Polling Asses and Pachyderms
Despite all the press about how important women are to this election, our anecdotal evidence suggests otherwise. In late summer, we sent a series of seven questions to each presidential candidateâ€™s campaign in collaboration with the Society for Women Engineers (SWE). Although members of the AWIS and SWE staff repeatedly contacted and followed up with members of each campaign, we have received responses only from the Obama team, which are available in their entirety here. If the Romney campaign responds, we will post the responses on our web site upon receiving them.
Update: The Romney campaign has declined to respond to our survey and we are disappointed.
