Poll: Only Republican Women Believe That Cain Is Innocent

According to a new study by the Pew Research Center, a majority of Americans who have heard about the Herman Cain sexual harassment scandal believe that the allegations against Cain are true. Surprisingly, however, Republican women are significantly more likely than any other group to believe that Cain is innocent. In fact, Republican women are the only gender group that believes the allegations to be false.

Among Republican women who have heard about the story, 46 percent believe that the allegations against Cain are false, compared with just 24 percent who believe that they are true. That number stands in sharp contrast to the 34 percent of Republican men who believe that Cain is guilty, with 33 percent of Republican men believing that the allegations against Cain are false.

    Republican women apparently believe sexual harassment isn’t a problem and women should tolerate unless, of course it happens to them. Maybe more Republican women are stay at home moms so they don’t have to worry about that but I bet you they understand cheating husbands, and a lot of them know (if they’re husbands are really successful) that their husbands also engage in this behavior. Powerful men feel it’s their right to demand sexual favors and the more powerful, the more they do it.
