Marist poll: Woman? Yes. Latino? Yes. Socialist? No.

snip>Americans this campaign face a field of major candidates for president that is arguably the most diverse in history – in gender, race, religion, viewpoint and life experience.

Voters are very open to some of those, according to a new McClatchy-Marist Poll. Lopsided majorities of voters say they’d vote without reservation for a woman or a Latino, for example.

They are very skeptical of one trait – half would definitely vote against a socialist.
snip>
Voters lean solidly against electing a socialist, which is bad for self-described “democratric socialist” Bernie Sanders.

.....A solid 50 percent of voters say they would definitely vote against a socialist. That is driven by a solid no from 77 percent of Republicans and 50 percent of independents.

This Marist/McClatchy poll was conducted 10/29-11/4. Further findings: 5% would vote no on a woman, 7% wouldn't vote for a Latino, 19% wouldn't vote for someone with no govt experience, 10% would vote no on someone WITH govt exp., and 25% would reject a Seventh Day Adventist.

Digby has some cool charts up about electing women, noting that currently "women still make up less than 20% of elected representatives."

3. If he ever gives the socialist speech...

I'd bet money his GE poll numbers go down.

8. The hell of it is

that Sanders isn't really a socialist. He's a liberal who has some very commendable but also very limited priorities. He's not at all a bad Senator, and the Senate is where he belongs.
