WASHINGTON, April 23 (UPI) -- More U.S. voters give likely Republican presidential nominee Mitt Romney and the GOP the edge over Democrats on the issue of working women, a poll indicated.

Forty-nine percent of likely voters in the poll by The Hill said Romney respects women who have careers outside of the home while 27 percent said he doesn't and 24 percent said they weren't sure, results released Monday indicated.

In contrast, 37 percent of likely voters said they don't think President Obama respects women who stay at home rather than pursue a career and 35 percent said he does, results showed. Twenty-nine percent were unsure.

The Hill said results indicated 46 percent said Romney better understands women voters' issues while 41 percent said Obama was better.

Forty-two percent of all voters said the Republican Party was better for women and 41 percent said Democrats were, results said.

Results are based on a nationwide survey of 1,000 likely voters conducted Friday. The margin of error is 3 percentage points.
