Despite the unpopularity of Trump and the Republican Congress, Democrats need to address their shortcomings with key segments of the electorate, according to our latest polls and online panels.
Women’s Voices Women Vote Action Fund informs and mobilizes unmarried women and the rest of the Rising American Electorate (unmarried women, people of color, and millennials) to participate in our government and make their voices heard in our democracy. The Action Fund is dedicated to encouraging the Rising American Electorate — particularly unmarried women — to bring their voices to our nation’s political conversation and to advocate for policies important to them. The Action Fund seeks to empower the RAE on their own with the facts they need to make their own informed choices about ballot measures, candidates, and issues.
Our ongoing advocacy, activation, and research work is dependent on donations. We couldn’t do what we do without the generous support of our donors. Please consider a financial donation to the Action Fund.
Senate Republicans are pushing through a tax plan that would disproportionately hurt unmarried women, people of color, and young people – all members of the Rising American Electorate who are the majority of the voting eligible population.
The RAE is targeted by the GOP plan: The RAE is already overrepresented among middle class and lower-income groups, with 51% of unmarried women, 50% of African Americans, and 38% of Latinos with household incomes less than $50,000.
Our Election Day poll in Virginia shows the Rising American Electorate – unmarried women, people of color, and young people – strongly rejected Donald Trump’s dog-whistle politics and divisive policies, and propelled Democrats to victory.
