August 2022 MomsRising national poll done by Lake Research Partners
POLLING DATE: August 12-21, 2022
POLL BACKGROUND INFO: The online survey reached a total of 1,500 likely voters which includes a base sample of 1,000 likely voters with oversamples of 100 African American likely voters, 100 Asian American Pacific Islander likely voters, 100 Latinx likely voters, 100 suburban caregivers, and 100 LGBTQ likely voters. These oversamples were weighted down into the base sample to their proper proportion of the universe for a total sample size of 1,000. We also surveyed 100 Democratic 2022 surge voters which was kept separate from the base sample.
The margin of error is +/-2.5%.
KEY POLL RESULTS:
Seven-in-ten (70%) women and 84% of moms are more likely to vote for a candidate who SUPPORTS a caregiving agenda that includes 12 weeks of paid family and medical leave, universal child care and pre-k 3 and 4, and increased investments in home and community-based services that help people live more independently as they age or if they have a disability. 37% of women and 42% of moms are much more likely to vote for this candidate.
About half of women (47%) and moms (49%) are less likely to vote for a candidate who OPPOSES a caregiving agenda that includes 12 weeks of paid family and medical leave, universal child care and pre-k 3 and 4, and increased investments in home and community-based services that help people live more independently as they age or if they have a disability. 29% of women and 36% of moms are much less likely to vote for that candidate.
Two-thirds of women (66%) and 62% of moms are likely to vote for a candidate who says, "Access to abortion care and paid family and medical leave are both extremely important for families' economic security, which in turn benefits our country’s economic security too." 42% of women and moms are very likely to vote for them.
