Ballot Talks: the role of gender in the Democratic primary, and more

Listen 00:48:45

Guests: Bonnie Watson Coleman, Gloria Bromell-Tinubu

In this week’s edition of Ballot Talks: we’ll explore the role that gender is playing among Democratic voters in this year’s presidential primary. Hillary Clinton has strong support among women over 45, while Bernie Sanders has more support among younger women. Comments made by former Secretary of State Madeline Albright and feminist activist Gloria Steinem have sparked discussion about the responsibility of women to elect the first female President. And, the advent of so-called “BernieBros” has increased scrutiny around the motivations of male Bernie Sanders supporters. We’ll talk with Hillary Clinton supporter and Democratic Congresswoman BONNIE WATSON COLEMAN of New Jersey’s 12th District, and with Bernie Sanders supporter and prominent South Carolina Democrat GLORIA BROMELL-TINUBU.
