October’s issue of Cosmopolitan features the results of a survey of over 750 women aged 18-34 on opinions about everything from finding purpose in life to bullying to politics.
On the political front, survey participants were asked about the presidential race, issues that keep them up at night and the idea of American greatness. Here are some of the findings:
- Respondents were pessimistic about the state of the state. Fifty-nine percent feel the country is headed in the wrong direction and just 15 believe America is the greatest country in the world.
- Eighty-five percent of respondents expressed concern over economic, race and environmental issues.
- The issues respondents said they would like the next president to focus on are health care, the economy and student debt.
- As for the political leanings of participants, 43 percent identified as a Liberal or Democrat, 24 percent as Republican or Conservative and 17 percent as Independent.
The full results of the survey, which was conducted by market research firm Millward Brown, appear in Cosmo’s October issue.
