If 77$ voted for McCain-Palin then we are not looking at new voters, just and angry base.

I’ve been shocked and amazed at women’s reaction to this abuse of power and marxism.

I thought they would just go along with “sugar-daddy” state—boy was I wrong.

Thank you, American women!

My wife told me the reason she supports the TEA Party movement is simple. More taxes = Less discretionary (code word for shopping) money.

I just put my armour suit on.

The most shocking part of those stats to me is this...

33% of the women at the tea parties voted for obama.

Looking through a liberals eyes, These typical white womens inherent fear of a black man only proves the Tea Partys racism.

A lot of the idiots voted for the Oprah candidate.

PS: If the GOP (not RINO sh*t like McCain) does not romp in 2010 and DEFUND OBamacare in the House followed by a big win in 2012 - our lives will be hell for good.

2007 was heaven compared to this miserable s**t.

"55% of Tea Party members are women versus 45% men, according to a Quinnipiac poll released last week. 77% of all of them voted for John McCain, and 88% of them are white.

The Sarah Palin phenomenon may have motivated the white Tea Party women, who could significantly impact future elections, since their support of any potential Republican candidate has more room to grow than black women's support of an Obama re-election campaign."

A very interesting view of a dynamic that I must admit, I hadn't really looked at.

I don't doubt that Sarah Palin inspired a lot of center-right white women to stand up and get involved in forging the future direction of their country. She's undoubtedly a great inspiration to many women.

I can see the vast majority of conservative women not just looking at Sarah and seeing in her the sort of right-thinking conservative leadership this country truly needs, but also someone who represents them on a much more immediate, and personal level.

The author is definitely on to something big with this.

I can understand some wishing to pick apart the “motivation”, so as to do battle against it. (Liberals must always categorize)
But....
Maybe it's simply that conservative women have brains.

“88% of (tea party members) are white.”

That’s interesting. Does anybody have an idea of the racial makeup of the 12% of the tea party members who are non-white?

There is something to this. I am sensing a lot of hostility from the women I speak to these days. Even my apolitical wife is on the rampage over what Barack the Kenyan and his Chicago thugs are doing to America. I really believe it’s going to get ugly in November. The commie ‘RATS are in for a great big ******* surprise. They are losing the female vote and it’s worse than they think.

You’re correct. My husband did not have the time or interest in looking at the health benefits... every year he always plunks that enrollment package on my desk.
Quite aware of what hoops we have to jump through and what has to be paid to take care of our health needs. I would think that women with school age children should be the biggest pool of voters for the right conservative candidate.

Are white women feeling oppressed, as white men began to feel as their place in American society was challenged?

Challenged or viciously attacked?

Marxists needed feminism to split the white vote and get Her to vote with them. It's worked pretty well over the last 20 years.

Obama's showing his contempt like he is for all white people is burning the Left's bridges to white women. When Zero disses British diplomats repeatedly but cozies up to Leftists and the "Arab street", white women get it. They get it that He's Just Not That Into You .... and the gains the Left wrought by dividing women from men over 40 years begin to be eroded as women think, hey, wait a minute!.

You've come a long way, baby.

The writer is overlooking the possibility that some of us simply respect the constitution and the wisdom of our founders. Another factor is the concern we have for the long-term liberty, security and prosperity of our families. Loading up our children and their generation with debt is unwise, unfair, and unsustainable. Compromising their privacy and their rights to make their own decisions in life doesn't sit well with moms and grandmothers. And yes, there are a lot of grandmothers among the Tea Patriots.

Some political analysts can't get past the "gimme, gimme, what's in it for me" thinking that has pervaded our politics in recent decades. Among the Tea Party group, I just don't hear concerns framed in that way. It's about the future of our beloved country and the future well-being of our families. These are often mature people who have paid mortgages, put food on the table, cared for families, and paid for college. They know money doesn't grow on trees, and they know that when someone pays your way, they take over too many of your decisions. Call it life experience.

A think a large portion of these Tea Party women are mothers and grandmothers. They don’t like seeing Obama spend, gamble, pillage, and destroy their children and grandchildren’s futures.

An even deeper aspect to this dynamic. I can guarantee you that should she run, a lot of girls who watched her during the '08 campaign will be casting their very first vote (for her) in 2012.

I know someone who is one of those “government is my replacement daddy/husband”,

and she seems “nervous” as of late.

Like she knows that the fulfillment of the policies she advocates are indeed as dangerous as people have warned.

I say ‘So What!’ if they ARE motivated by anger and/or fear.

That’s far better than greed, envy and jealousy, the underpinnings of class warfare that drives the progressive/liberal/socialism losers.

older angry about Obama white Christian gals who love their grandkids

sort of like FR

there is no doubt that is Free Republic’s largest demographic...not sure what percentage...maybe 40-50% or more..

then older pissed white Christian men...like me...I wasn’t old 10 years ago when I started here btw

then GenX folks

then a lot of sub groups from a few minorities to a few smart Jews and some kids here and there.

that about covers FR

FR is more varied (I refuse to use the D word mantra) than the Tea Party.

If 77$ voted for McCain-Palin then we are not looking at new voters, just and angry base.
____________________________________________________________

I was thinking the exact opposite. That means that 23% of the female tea party ACTIVISTS are Obama voters or non-voters. 16% say they are Tea Party * 50% of voters that are women * 23% is . . . 1.8%.

That is a HUGE swing in base political numbers, because these are just the informed and active that are Tea Party. The go-along types will come along for the ride as well as they talk to thier neighbors and family at election time.
