In contrast, 89 percent of Democrats and 63 percent of independents do hope to see a woman elected president.

A recent YouGov poll set out to gauge Americans’ opinions on the idea of having a woman for president, and although most respondents thought they would likely see a woman in the Oval Office in their lifetime, not everyone was hoping for it.

Asked if they'd see a woman president in their lifetime, 20 percent of respondents said they "definitely will," while 43 percent said they "probably will." A total of 63 percent believed they would likely see a female president before they die.

YouGov also asked, "Do you personally hope that the United States elects a woman president of the United States in your lifetime, or not?" Sixty-six percent of all respondents said yes, while 34 percent said no.

A comfortable majority of Republicans—59 percent—responded no, they don't hope to see a woman president in their lifetime, according to YouGov. In comparison, 89 percent of Democrats and 63 percent of independents responded that yes, they hoped to see a woman president before they died.
