Many folks have speculated that a large segment of women are going to vote for Hilary mainly because (she is a woman). Now that Carly Fiorina is seeking the Republican Party nomination I wonder if her run will be viewed in the same light. Something tells me (party platform) will play a larger role in how women vote than a candidate's gender will. It's almost like saying Dr. Ben Carson is going to get 90% of the "black vote" based upon his race. Not likely!

Very good answer, Besarien. Thank you for posting it.
I agree. Most people vote for whomever they feel is the best candidate in addition to their party platform. Women have voted for men in the past. Obama beat Hilary in 2008 primaries thereby proving their vote isn't strictly along gender lines.
Yes, I too believe one's party and their beliefs generates more votes than their gender does. Some Republicans have never voted for Democrats and vice versa. That won't change regardless of gender or race of the candidate.
