Poll: Crapo, Risch & Good Ol’ Boys

  • Tuesday Poll: U.S. Sens. Mike Crapo & Jim Risch didn't include females among the list of candidates they interviewed for a federal District Court vacancy because they're part of Idaho's "good old boy" system. 135 of 270 respondents (50%) checked that as the reason that women were ignored in this process. Another 68 of 270 (25.19%) said sexism was in play in the decision by the two senators to ignore potential female candidates. Also: 26 (9.63%) said the two don't know any better; 24 (8.89%) said there were no qualified female candidates; and 17 (6.3%) selected "other."
  • Today's Poll: Do you think the Legislature will pass Child Support legislation during the special session?
