There also exists a slight tendency for Democrats to favor a political career for their sons and daughters more than Republicans do, with a larger party difference for daughters.

The study also revealed that the high point for wanting a child to choose the career was 1965, when 36 percent of those surveyed said they wanted their kids to go into politics.
