Skip to comments.Vanity: Women elect Barack Obama
Posted on 11/05/2008 1:49:48 PM PST by reaganaut1
According to the exit polls at http://www.cnn.com/ELECTION/2008/results/president/, Obama and McCain were almost tied in the men's vote, 49% to 48%, but women voted for Obama by 56% to 43%.
I have occasionally discussed politics with women and usually found it frustrating. They think in a very different manner than I do. I am trying to phrase this in a neutral manner.
Suggestions on how to reclaim womens' votes are welcome. Although some women vote Republican, I think their overall support for the Democratic candidate is worth discussing, since the 19th Amendment is not going to be repealed.
Not relating to anyone here, of course.
They need Uncle Sugar to take care of them.
I was hoping Sarah Palin would have an impact. I guess she was not woman enough.
“it’s true..it’s true.” ;)
What’s really telling is the difference between married women and single women... single women go for Dems HUGE HUGE HUGE... they’re looking for govt to be the surrogate husband/dad.
Hey guys...look at the percentage of white MALE union members who voted for him. They went overwhelmingly for Obama. Don’t try to blame it on women.
And libs prey on the weak-minded.
Could be the Oprahfication of the American female.
BTW, I am a Sarah-loving lioness. I know too many other women like me to give much credence to those statistics, unless they’re including the she-men of the Bay Area.
And don’t even get me started on the idea that womens’ emancipation started this. Big O was a hardcore misogynist throughout the entire campaign.
Ann Coulter once said that if the 19th Amendment were repealed the Democrats would never win another national election again.
catholics elected Barack Obama. Catholics voted for McCain/Palin or ‘other’.
My wife is great. She came from a Dem family...and she ended up being a true Republican all the way.
Thanks,that’s what I meant to say.
“I am trying to phrase this in a neutral manner.”
I’m not PC. Suspend the 19th amendment. The Founders didn’t give females the vote for good reason. Liberal females vote for daddy government so they can sit around on their fat butts, drink beer, watch soap operas and demand someone else pick up the tab for their idiot commie kids.
Actually if you look at the exits in 2004, they majority of the women went to Bush, especially in Colorado.
They might be put off by some people’s attitudes about women’s intelligence or political acumen. Or by the assumption that they all think in the same way—like women. What does that even mean? Seems like the party has a lot to figure out between now and 2012.
Well she hasn’t gotten divorced, had an abortion, sued an employer for harassment, the list goes on and on.
Oh yeah shame on her for having 5 wonderful children and holding a very stressful full-time job!
For me I still can’t figure out why women voted Bill Clinton in...now it is all over again.
Got that right. Single women overwhelmingly support Dems. Obviously looking someone to provide security and protection. Of course, they are all feminist to one degree or another. Goes back to break down of traditional life and values. Had they been married and raising a family, they’d more likely be republican. ( Yes, I know their are conservative single women and leftist married mothers.)
Yeah, and one of them was my lifelong republican mother.
My sister told me that she believed all the crapola being thrown at Sarah Palin and that’s why she went Obama.
I think single women expect the government to give them what a man either can’t or is unwilling to. I wouldn’t want to give these type of women anything either, especially my paycheck. They’re depressing, self-loathing, whiny, “victims.”
it all started to go downhill when President Fillmore allowed non-property owners to vote :)
This woman didn’t elect that bastid. Although, I see the point that is attempting to be made. Kind of like making the “macho” argument. Whatever.
I heard a Palin hating woman I know say that Palin was “just another vagina”. They are not really for womens rights. they are just nasty pro aborts.
From the article: “...since the 19th Amendment is not going to be repealed.”
Who sez it ain’t gonna be repealed?
Let’s forget about taking back the vote from women... and instead let’s just have a basic intelligence test prior to being able to vote.
My niece’s daughter who had to vote for BHO since he is black. (Just like her poor oppressed boyfriend - who is a lazy bum not working while she is paying all the bills!)And since he was poor, just like her, he understands how it is to be poor. And he is going to change how the country is run so the future will be better. - Now she has no clue what he is going to change or how he plans to change... but she knows it will be for “the better”.
After her didactic lecture on how “we” didn’t understand how BHO was going to save America... do you realize she didn’t even know that BHO was the “democrat”ic canidate?
Unfortunately, this election was won through the emotions, not the intellect, which shows the feminization of society. And that’s not a good thing. Overfeminization is a sign of decadence.
Sarah had a big effect. McCain would have only got 30% or less without her. The women rejected McCain.
Women earn less than men and so have less to lose.
Men, especially white men, are used by the state.
Oh, and they’re going to get really used over the next 4 years.
Woodrow Wilson got in twice before it was passed!
LOL, you really are not PC. Which is ok but I differ with your opinion.
“Im not PC. Suspend the 19th amendment. The Founders didnt give females the vote for good reason. Liberal females vote for daddy government so they can sit around on their fat butts, drink beer, watch soap operas and demand someone else pick up the tab for their idiot commie kids.”
So ALL women get punished because of the loser lib females? C’mon now! It’s like saying the GOP women are the same as the Lib women. You KNOW that’s not true.
Guess what? I’m the person who influenced my husband to vote GOP. You want to take away my right to vote? Crazy. Stop this nonsense.
No worries, when Imam Obama institutes sharia law women won’t be voting anymore. Problem solved.
Palin was more of a man than her running mate was.
Don't bother. Governament makes a better daddy than most men could. Help me Daddy, I want some money!
They are always doing something against the grain.
Sarah Palin was married, with a loving husband.
In private discourse with single women, I was rather shocked at how much they hated her.
So maybe it was not so much that "she was not woman enough," but rather that "she was not single enough".
They aren’t getting punished if the person who wins is whom they would have voted for any way.
In fact, they are getting rewarded, because they are saved from the louse that the lib women voted into office.
That’s how you will be voting, by influencing your husband, it would be a great incentive to encourage single women to get a husband.
Please don’t take us men seriously for the next few days. We are really pissed and just venting — at least I am. Of course, women are subject to the same laws as men, including the tax laws, and thus they are entitled to vote.
I really wish they voted differently.
According to Coulter (in an interview in the New York Observer earlier this week):
If we took away women's right to vote, we'd never have to worry about another Democrat president. It's kind of a pipe dream, it's a personal fantasy of mine, but I don't think it's going to happen. And it is a good way of making the point that women are voting so stupidly, at least single women.
Then take a look at what you all saw in the one's rallies, those women were simple gaga over the one, they were in love with him, they adored him, and dare I say they thought they would have a chance at being his "Monica", yes I dare. It was all about his charm (puke here), they clung to every word he said and never understood a word of it, they were mesmerized.
Wonder how many "Monica's" he has lined up, perhaps Monica is still around, I'm sure she would not mind the overtime.
Well, THIS woman didn’t.
Had a discussion on this topic the other day with my wife. She’s from Shanghai, and has an interesting view of American politics. She’s a CPA at a college. She said that when zer0 made a visit to the school, almost no work was done that day by women! The women hovered around the office windows, hoping to get a look at the star. After he left, no work was done as the women gathered in groups and swooned and giggled about him. My wife was disgusted!
Adam should have barbecued that rib.Ducking for cover now...
I’d be cool with a system where single women can’t vote, and married men get 2 votes, one for himself and one for his wife.
