What College Women Thought Of This Week’s #DemDebate

After the first Democratic debate Tuesday night, we surveyed 276 college women from across the country who watched the debate to find out what they thought. Most of these women said they were liberal or very liberal, but about 25 percent described themselves as moderate, and 13 percent as conservative or very conservative.

It turns out the most collegiettes are big fans of Bernie Sanders, with the most survey takers choosing him as the debate winner. But that doesn’t mean college women have turned against Hillary—30 percent thought she was the winner, and many thought the criticisms of her political strategy and her email account have been overblown.

Check out the results below!
