Report: Who are 'Walmart moms' voting for?

It's been a contentious election cycle so far, but who are "Walmart moms" voting for?  Penn Schoen Berland and Public Opinion Strategies recently spearheaded the third polling of "Walmart moms" - moms who have shopped at Walmart in the month prior. According to an ABC News report, it's a group that makes up 14% to 17% percent of the American electorate. "They voted for Obama in 2008 and 2012, and for the respective GOP and Democratic congressional majorities in 2010 and 2014," ABC News reported. This year, however, it doesn't appear either candidate, Clinton or Trump, is favored. (ABC News)
