The citizens of Saint-Petersburg favour woman president

The citizens of Saint-Petersburg favour woman president About a third of St. Petersburgers favor a woman president, according to a poll conducted by the Agency for Social Information.

Citing Roman Mogilevsky, scientific manager of the polling agency, it said 506 citizens aged over 18 were polled about the issue on Feb. 17-18.

More women than men, about 40 percent of women respondents, supported a woman president and because they are active voters the chances of a woman president being elected are realistic. Mogilevsky was quoted as saying. However, some 53 percent of men have negative views of a woman president, the report said.
