The old saying is that men are from Mars and women are from Venus. When it comes to CNBC's "All American Survey," however, it's more like men are from small government and women are not.
Politically, female respondents were gentler on the Obama administration and more critical of Republican responses to the White House.
And the two genders are definitely split on the issue of regulation. Among the men surveyed, 56 percent think business is over-regulated. That's compared to just 41 percent of women.
The contrast is even greater when the issue of the political Tea Party is discussed. A major component of the Tea Party platform is reducing the size, scope and power of the federal government.
According to the survey, 38 percent of men support the Tea Party's economic policies, while the number was 25 percent for women. It should be noted, however, that 41 percent of respondents did not register an opinion on the Tea Party.
