The 'Feminist Factor': President Obama enjoyed a decisive victory in 2008, in some part due to the feminist factor. Women Identifying as Feminists: 54% Over age 30; 58% Under age 30; 72% Democratic; 38% Republican. A majority of Latina, African American and white women voters consider themselves feminists.
30% of male voters surveyed in 2012 consider themselves feminist - a 9-point gain compared to 2008.
In 2012, women successfully elected a Democratic President and Senate, but failed to elect a Democratic majority in the House. It is a theory that gerrymandered congressional districts underrepresent all minorities, including women.
