Abstract

The aim of this paper is to explore and explain the relationship between various cultural and societal factors on how immigrant women to the U.S. vote. There is a growing amount of research on the voting habits of both women, and immigrants. This paper seeks to understand the voting habits of individuals who identify with both categories. This thesis utilizes public opinion data from the 2018 General Social Survey to discover if there is a relationship between country of origin in addition to gender, and if the respondent voted for Trump or Clinton in the 2016 presidential election. My theory expects to see that different parts of an individual’s identity as a woman immigrant, such as generation, level of education, religious beliefs, and political ideology and affiliation, affect who they voted for in the 2016 presidential election.
