Election Stats: Romney Wins with Highest Earning Women

Topics: Current Events

In today's edition of PayScale Election Stats, we surveyed users to find out if support of a particular candidate changes for men and women depending on how much they earn. Our data on this topic was stark. Read on for the break down of candidate support by gender and income. 

When it comes to women voters, Obama wins by a landslide. That is, until the women voters reach the top income bracket. Then support shifts to heavily pro-Romney (58% Romney / 42% Obama), proving dames with dollars dig Romney. On the men's side, Romney dominates every wage bracket above $50,000 per year.
