New National Survey Unveils the Concerns of Women in Advance of the 2008 Election

Survey Addresses Key Issues: Health Care and the Economy

Please join us for a call with two of the nation’s leading political pollsters, as well as PFCD’s Executive Director, Ken Thorpe, to release the findings of a recent survey evaluating the attitudes of men and women voters about health care and the 2008 election. The speakers will dissect the numbers and analyze what the results mean for candidates at all levels of government.

For millions of American women, health care is a top priority, but due to other recent news -- most notably, the financial crisis -- the issue has not received much attention from elected officials or the media. As a key voting demographic, many political experts suggest that women will be a decisive factor influencing the outcome of the 2008 election.

Please contact Anne Kott at for more information.
