New Jerseyans Agree Country is Ready for a Woman in the Oval Office

New Jerseyans Agree Country is Ready for a Woman in the Oval Office
BY STEVE MANAS
SPECIAL TO NEWJERSEYNEWSROOM.COM

With all signs pointing to a second presidential campaign by former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, 80 percent of New Jersey voters say Americans are ready for a woman in the Oval Office, according to a new Rutgers-Eagleton Poll. Just 16 percent think the country is not yet ready for such a groundbreaking event.

Further, half of Garden State voters hope to see a woman become president in their lifetime, although the other half says it does not matter to them personally.

For many, hope for a woman president is apparently related to being “ready for Hillary.” A large majority of New Jersey voters has a positive view of Clinton and her potential, with 63 percent saying she would make a good president overall. Respondents are very upbeat about Clinton: 70 percent say she has the right “look” to be president, 74 percent say she has the right “demeanor and personality,” and 83 percent say she has the right amount of “experience” when considered against other potential Democratic contenders.
