1 EXECUTIVE SUMMARY August 2012 Conducted by the National Federation of Republican Women

2 2 Daily we hear the media and others perpetuate stereotypes about Republican women, who we are and what we believe. No comprehensive survey of Republican women had ever been taken to provide data for a substantive response. Thus, the National Federation of Republican Women’s Table Talk Survey was born, a survey created by Republican women for Republican women. Between July 1 and August 6, 2012, more than 8,500 women representing every one of the 50 states and several U.S. territories participated, providing us with this much needed data. We are anxious to share the early results. This is an Executive Summary of the survey results and addresses five topics: Demographics, Policy, Problems, Our Perspectives and Elections. No analysis or interpretation of the results has yet been formulated, just the raw data. This is an important beginning for Republican women! The NFRW is now ready and equipped to lead in this discussion. NFRW President August 27, 2012
