Attitudes toward the Equal Rights Amendment were not an important factor in the emergence of the "gender gap" in the 1980 presidential election. Conclusions to the contrary by news analysts, feminist political activists, and political scientists are based on a combination of the power of expectation, faulty analysis, and random bias in the most frequently used survey in political science.
