New Research Shows Why Romney Struggles among Women and Latinos
This national poll finds that both women and Latinos consider Romney more “cold,” “insincere” and “rude” than Obama, and less “experienced,” “compassionate” and “trustworthy.”
National polls show that Romney trails Obama among both women and Hispanics by significant margins. This research shows some reasons why. “Personality traits are often as important as the message when a candidate is trying to turn things around,” says E-Poll Market Research President & CEO Gerry Philpott. “While making some gains among women recently, Romney will have a hard time extending beyond that when 28 percent of them consider him insincere.”
Results show that Romney is considered “cold” by 29 percent of Latinos, as opposed to only 6 percent who feel the same way about Obama. 30 percent of Latinos describe Obama as “sincere,”
Obama as “compassionate,”
These tables show the percentages of respondents from each demographic group who selected a given attribute to describe the candidate.
