I am wondering how much husbands, fathers, uncles or brothers influence positively or negatively the candidates for whom women vote?
My mother and father belong to different parties and usually they just don’t discuss politics. But one election year, my dad pressured my mother to vote for his candidate. He kept telling her that his business would fail if she voted for the wrong guy.
To this day, she talks about her regret in changing her vote.
On the flip side, I like discussing politics with my husband. He is very well informed, and I always learn from our discussions.
Does your husband or any other man in your life influence your vote?
