    It’s not a problem for one party or the other, it’s a problem for all. It’s a reason why the most vile despicable man in the history of American politics was able to achieve the presidency. This country has a significant problem with women of power and in power. Look no further than the demonization of the so-called, “squad” and now look at this report:

    There's a huge gender gap on likability

    Warren has some good policy and grit but comes off super bland and boring. I can see the likeability being low. I can also see the reasoning behind biden because he seems loose and happy vs angry. When it comes to sanders, I dont think personality is why he became likeable so something might be there.

    Like it or not, charisma goes a long way in voting. See Bill Clinton and the saxaphone.

    I have made this point over and over. Had Hillary been a man, with all the same baggage, she would have gotten 70+million votes, and won in a landslide.

    Overall, women have a more difficult time seeking positions of power when compared to their male counterparts. I see it all the time - the deference granted to female judges is less than that granted to male judges, or attorneys, or staff. Maybe it's just my profession, but I'm telling you, sexism is very real and prevalent.

    I do not disagree that those things happen, just pointing out that in this specific example, there is not a lot of charisma and personality in someone like Elizabeth Warren. Maybe women with a lot of charisma and personality often get shunned from politics because of just that.

    I would think, though, that Harris would have a much higher favorability rating.

    She does with me so far

    Seems to tough and we'll prepared, that she is a woman doesn't matter much to me.

    By that I met it is a good thing but not a real deciding point

    I've rarely come across her so far, might be part of it. media presentation percentages and etc. I get flooded with Biden and sanders information without even asking for it. I see nothing about her.

    This former Texas Republican elected official is about to get called nasty by Trump:

    As she is no longer on the bench, good on her for following her conscious.

    I can just see hundreds of tweets calling her a “trader.”

    If Hillary was a man then Bill would have been gay, which means in those days he never would have gotten elected President, which means Hillary never would have had the major exposure needed to expand her political career to eventually run for President.

    Not to mention, we would have had HW for 8 years, which means that we probably would have had Kerry as President from 1996-2004. Just a thought.
