Men Are More Optimistic About America's Future Than Women

That's weird.

A recent survey has resulted in some not-very-shocking news: women aren’t pumped about America’s future, but men are pretty chill with it. 

The Pew Research Center poll surveyed over 1,000 people from April 5 to April 11 about public trust in the government. The poll, published on May 3, found that trust is overall at a near historic low ― but that demographics are also quite telling. 

According to Pew, 53 percent of men surveyed said that they are confident in the future of the U.S. Only 29 percent of women, on the other hand, felt the same. The study also pointed out that “this 24-point gender gap is far wider than it was in 2015, when there was little difference in views between men and women on this question.” 

Weird. It’s almost like regular attacks on our bodily autonomy, having a president who brags about grabbing women “by the pussy,” and watching men make major women’s health care decisions is shaking our faith.
