Republicans Are Less Likely Than Democrats to Believe Women Who Make Sexual Assault Accusations: Survey

TIME and SurveyMonkey conducted an online poll to capture the rapid shift in the way Americans think about these issues and found that 8 in 10 people believe women are more likely to speak out about sexual assault and harassment since the allegations against Weinstein broke in October.

But the poll of more than 2,300 adults also revealed a stark partisan divide in how Americans view sexual assault allegations. Democrats are more likely than Republicans to believe accusers: 93% of Democrats say they believe the women alleging sexual harassment, compared to 78% of Republicans. Republicans are also twice as likely as Democrats to think that accused men are being unfairly treated by the media (52% of Republicans think the media coverage of the sexual allegations is unfair, compared to 20% of Democrats). And while 77% of Democrats say the #MeToo movement will lead to meaningful change, 55% of Republicans say the movement is a distraction.

Can we be more specific? I believe some but not others. Dumb survey.

Poll is stupid, because 93% of Dems don't believe Clinton's accusers even one bit.

I believe in innocent until proven guilty. I have also seen first hand accounts of girls in college who did some things the night before they regretted in the morning and tried to pass off as rape.

Now we know Democrats are 100% more likely to take money from and protect rapists so there is that.

According to 2016 CNN exit polls, Hillary won Democrats 89-8. So either:


1) Only 8% of Dems actually believe Bill's female accusers, not 93% you cited above; or
2) 93% of Dems really do believe Bill's accusers, they just don't care

Anytime. The Clinton Paradox is useful for many things, like disproving laughably dumb polls.

Then you'll never prove inappropriate sexual contact. It will always be one persons word against another. I guess you've got to choose who you believe. If there's multiple accusers, it's hard to not side with the victims.

New poll makes it clear: Sexual harassment is not a dealbreaker in todayís GOP

The big new finding from a Quinnipiac University poll is this: About half of Republicans say GOP senators should let Roy Moore serve in the Senate. By a margin of 49 percent to 33 percent, Republicans say the Alabamian, who is accused of sexual misconduct with multiple teenagers, should not be expelled if he wins next monthís special election, as some Senate Republicans have threatened to do.

But thatís hardly the only finding in the poll that suggests the GOP has taken a softer view toward sexual harassment.

Of course it is - when they accuse politicians you support. Isn't that right, Messier? (Nudges your arm)

Why doesn't cosmo post here as much anymore? Could you ask him?

What's your standard? If two people accuse then guilty?
