Kaiser Public Opinion Update: Women, Health Care, and The 2000 Election
Women, Health Care, & The 2000 Election
In 1992, the presidential campaign was dubbed “The Year of the Woman” because more female candidates ran that year than any other in US history. In 1996, “Soccer Moms” grabbed headlines as the group whose support candidates needed to win. Election 2000 is quickly turning women voters into champions for education and health care issues. This Public Opinion Update summarizes key findings from the Kaiser Family Foundation/Harvard School of Public Health National Survey on Health Care and the 2000 Elections, conducted in December of 1999.
