Voting Gender Gap?

By  | 

There appears to be a gender gap in the Mississippi's governor's race.

A poll commissioned by the associated press and the clarion-ledger newspaper shows Gov. Ronnie Musgrove, a democrat, is more strongly favored by women under
50, while republican challenger Haley Barbour is more popular among young men.

The poll of 623 likely voters was conducted Oct. 21-23. It had an error margin of plus or minus 4 points.

The poll showed Barbour with 50% and Musgrove with 45%. Barbour led 63 to 34 percent among men under 50.

Musgrove led 56 to 35 percent among women under 50.
