To Claim Virginia, Obamas Hopes Rest On Women
By Karen Tumulty and Scott Clement September 19
In a presidential election where womens issues have taken a more prominent role than many expected, the crucial swing state of Virginia is becoming the Grand Canyon of gender gaps.
A new Washington Post survey indicates that President Obama holds a 19 percentage-point lead (58 to 39) among likely women voters in the commonwealth, yet is running six points behind Republican nominee Mitt Romney among men who are likely to vote (44 to 50). That support from women is the reason the president now enjoys an eight-point advantage overall in Virginia.
Virginia is a state Mitt Romney is fighting hard to win, but the latest poll shows the president holding a steady lead. But, the big surprise is President Obama is beating Romney on Romney's core issue - the economy.
There has long been a disparity between women and men in their voting patterns a phenomenon first identified and named the gender gap during Ronald Reagans presidency.
This year, however, ginning up female support has become an imperative for Obama in his reelection bid. Across the electoral map, the Obama campaign is banking on women to offset an expected loss to Romney among men

If you want on/off the VA Ping List, please freepmail me. Thanks!
LOL of course they will-.
All you have to do is look at the man vs women voting breakdowns of every single state/federal election.
While of course (emphasis added) I agree women should always continue to have suffrage, we wouldn’t have 90% of any of the Dems in congress or presidency, period, since Jimmy Carter or maybe even before him, if women couldn’t vote.
STUPID WHITE WOMEN ALERT!!!
NO demographic that consistently votes dem SHOULD EVER BE ALLOWED TO VOTE UNDER ANY CIRCUMSTANCES.
Things have worked out so well for women lately it’s hard to imagine them as a monolith supporting anyone but obama...
Clown-logic at it’s best. Even single mothers want to get ahead, rather than wait for a check in the mailbox.
Yeah, we conservatives want to punish women for carrying their children to term and perservering and loving and nurturing them. The dems offer an easy way out so they are not punished with children.
brief citation. Though it takes a lot of patience and googling to look at each election individually. I will say 90% as I posted because it is not ALWAYs the case. Carter men broke for 50 to 48.
Women voters have been problem since they got the vote.
I've made 1800 phone calls from home to New Hampshire in the last seven days using the system set up by the campaign. Even 100 calls will make a difference. Who will join me?
When viewing pro-obama tweets on Twitter, I could not help but notice that by far the majority of tweets were from women and black people. Try it.
To win Virginia Obama hopes that the Conservatives stay home! They won’t, they want him out of office pronto!
Obama is not up by 8 points in Virginia. That is complete BS.
He’s good looking, a snazzy dresser, and has a good line-he promises free stuff for everybody. What’s not for a woman to like?
I really don’t get many women nowadays. Where does all this contraception and abortion get them? Alone, single, older without kids, most often divorced, and lonely — that’s mostly what I see as I work with and encouter a lot of older women — and they ain’t all that happy, from what I can tell. I guess it’s all fun and games when your’e young, but as time goes on, that bit gets old.
So, add to that, they’ll also be unemployed, and increasingly dependent on someone else to pull them along.
I just don’t see what’s so attractive about all of that.
And I’m a woman myself.
If you think about it, contraception, abortion, etc. separates men and women. It keeps them apart, keeps them from working together, cooperating, compromising. More and more people remain single now ...which means more and more people will not have enough pooled resources to support themselves.
I just dread the future sometimes.
It seems to me that the attempt to redifine narriage is aimed at more than just homosexuals but rather to include groups of people.
This is a serious breakdown of civilized norms. I worry too.
Most of the people I know who will be voting for Obama...
They ain’t women.
Women voters have been the problem?
How about all the old people who voted for Obama?
How about all the idiots who are a product of public education who voted for Obama?
I’m seeing a trend on FR that I don’t like, and it’s all ‘women are what’s wrong”.
IS this FR or did I wander into an alternate universe where FreeRepublic has become Sharia?

Lemme see now - - - . (Think like a Democrat, think like a Democrat. Got it!)
After almost 4 years of sending her sons and daughters out of the house to look in vain for jobs, The Women of Virginia should vote for 4 more years of sending her sons and daughters out of the house to look in vain for jobs. (Nailed it!)
Well the problem, with all sorts of people, is that plenty of people, man or woman, really don’t get the big picture nowadays. Procrastination or dodging the concept of commitment and/or responsibility for some future time, only to find out that once you finally want to do it, it’s become so hard to do it. The whole cohabitation issue is perhaps one of the biggest ones out there, add that to rampant personal bankruptcy, and the aging crisis, as you pointed out, and we’re pretty much due for a worldwide “natural selection” event. It’s sad, but it’s likely to happen, and there isn’t much that really can happen except slow it down.
I also agree with you, strangely enough, on the whole separation issue as well. There seems to be a wedge in successful relationships between the genders, although my would-be wife gave me the perfect message and inspiration when I dated here: “Are we really going anywhere with this?” to which I responded “yes”, and the rest is history.
In my opinion, 25% of them look to Obama to be their father. They're insecure, not making as much money as they think they're worth, they have health worries, no one has ever asked for their hands in marriage, their dates are total busts......and here's Sugar Daddy Obama with the world's biggest stash of other peoples' money at his disposal.....and he's gonna re-distribute it to all his good little girls if they vote for him.....so they will do just that.
Another 25% look on Obama as a substitute for the bums they're married to. He's trim, and hubby has a huge, floppy spare tire. He runs up and down airplane stairs with a jaunty bounce, hubby is winded after the first 6 steps. Obama takes his family to exotic places, hubby thinks going to a Chicago Bears game after a tailgate hot dog in the stadium parking lot is a vacation. These women will vote en masse for Obama just to keep their dream alive that someday hubby will be just like the Won....the perfect, rich, energetic, successful mate.
Another 25% of the womens' vote will consist of liberal/unhappy/unhinged/frustrated ditzes who will vote for Obama because he's the perfect lover they dream of in their more naughty moments. He's so cool. No wonder he's called the black Frank Sinatra.....dooby doooby do, do do dee do ya......cool and sexy. While they don't throw their panties at him, they go to his rallies and cheer and marvel at his command, his good looks, his perfect hair and manicure, his white shirt open at the neck, his slim black pants, the nose up in the air.....and his coolness. Oh, to spend one night with him.....maybe even an autograph at a rally can be hoped for, maybe a handshake, that famous toothy grin, that haughty air, all that free love stuff......oh, oh, ooo, ooo, ahhhhhhhhhh......four more years of him, yes, yes, yes......oh, my gawd.....arghhhh.....mmm, mmm, mmm.
The final 25% of the women will vote for Obama because they still think they're voting for FDR......and like FDR, Obama will get the country out of the current depression and of course, he'll be a champion for lots more entitlements and freebies. Happy days will be here again, the skies above will be clear again, so let's sing a song of cheer again, happy days are here again.
Lesbians and viewers of the Ellen Degenerate show?
Single white women attracted to blacks?
Single white women attending colleges and high school graduates (the indoctrinated types)?
Single white women teachers belonging to unions?
Single white women trial lawyers?
Single white women waitresses?
Single white women on food stamps?
Single white women as victims of sexual harassment?
Single white women wanting taxpayer paid contraceptives? (Flukes)?
Ugly single white women?
Single white women temperamentally unsuited for marriage?
It was a woman who fell for the serpent’s lies and deception in the beginning. Sounds similar to our lying president and the rest of the dims and rinos.
Exactly! Everyone needs to help get these women in check!
You’re trolling here, right? Please confirm. Thanks.
“Alone, single, older without kids, most often divorced, and lonely thats mostly what I see as I work with and encouter a lot of older women and they aint all that happy, from what I can tell.”
The causes that many women support politically are often the reasons why no guy in his right mind would marry them. Guys don’t want somebody who will butcher a baby in the womb, rob him of his future earnings for decades if the marriage doesn’t work, and have some strange guy living in his former house with his children. There is simply little reason for a guy today to legally expose himself to marriage or fatherhood. I’ve been married over 15 years, with kids, but the wife isn’t American or “progressive” - she’s old-school.
Liberal women are coming to find out that the grass was not greener on the other side, the problem is ? their fun in the sun has effected all of us, all of society for the few who wanted their fun.
“Well the problem, with all sorts of people, is that plenty of people, man or woman, really dont get the big picture nowadays.”
Men see the picture all too clearly; many of the men of today are the sons of the men of the last generation who lost everything as families fell apart (with the helping hand of government). There is simply no way to convince them that there is an upside to marriage and families, especially at a time when it is difficult for a white man to get an education, a job, or a promotion; this is the natural result of basing these things on vaginas and melanin rather than merit/ablity.
“Procrastination or dodging the concept of commitment and/or responsibility for some future time, only to find out that once you finally want to do it, its become so hard to do it.”
Men’s opportunites grow, not diminish, with time (and they can have kids when they are 70). Also, younger men can choose an imported bride to provide them with the families native women defer or outright refuse to bear.
“The whole cohabitation issue is perhaps one of the biggest ones out there, add that to rampant personal bankruptcy, and the aging crisis, as you pointed out, and were pretty much due for a worldwide natural selection event.”
Cohabitation skirts the whole alimony issue, and for guys is a rational reaction to girlfriends who won’t bear them children anyway (until they’re 40 and want one to play with). The natural selection event is hapening today across the United States; the breeding imports are inheriting the earth, while the Americans buy new cars and iPhones instead.
These trends are changing the demographics of this country at a rapid rate; we can see around us today what was forecast to come about in 2050.
“Liberal women are coming to find out that the grass was not greener on the other side, the problem is ? their fun in the sun has effected all of us, all of society for the few who wanted their fun.”
They have found out what it is like to be a man, and they realize that it sucks. I work with liberal women who pretend to be hard-working professionals, but still are gone by 4:00 pm - hardly the overworked yuppies. They have no children, but instead create fake families around pets and Facebook; they really resent the traditional women who go home to a loving human family every day.
Much like the dating world.
The only line left out is the one about...
“Girl, you may have to support me.”
Yup, dreaming of La La land was what got her all tripped up. ( interpretation, unsatisfied with the present relationship )
” They aint women. “ ..... Orientation challenged ?
I certainly didn’t marry into money; I married someone who had the same faith and culture I was raised with (albeit with a different laguage). The only way for a guy to make 100% sure he doesn’t marry someone he’s not meant to be with is to not get married (in the same manner as abstinence is the only 100% effective “birth control”); America’s young men have taken that lesson to heart.
The US government and feminists have waged a cultural war on families for decades; now women are mad that they “won” (and lost everything, including their country, in the process).
“they were warned about the severe consequences, forged ahead anyway for decades only to come and find out that those people who warned them decades ago were right after all, but, can’t turn back time.”
Yu’re right, but they won’t even be honest about what’s causing it. Instead, they will turn a bling eye to television shows and commercials showing men as stupid, childish, uncaring, etc. (things you would never be allowed to portray women or the “protected” minorities as). The only good “fathers” on TV are the saps shown happily caring for some other guys brood as he moves in with the unwed mother; apparently none of these guys want biological children of their own.
These idiots, remnants of a dying culture, think that showing happy outcomes on television will actually change reality; the contrast between the America shown on TV and the America that surrounds us every day, has never been more pronounced.
I have several brothers who are happily unmarried, and several sons who probably will be (God knows what it will be like when they are in their 20s). It is very much a personal choice; God will let us decide.
The idea that women could have it all is as ridiculous as thinking that men had it all; in exchange for careers they usually had less of a relationship with the children than their mothers. How women think they’ll fit basically 2 careers into one life is beyond me...
It was women in the GOP that also gave us Romney. It is women who have to have the TV look in who they vote. Women have the shallow values in they reasons for voting.
The “liberal” white women I know are very racist; they openly point out that they don’t hire blacks (and in practice don’t hire Hispanics either). They hire other white women (usually acquaintances) or gay white men, and this provides them with a measure of job security because nobody is motivated/driven enough to take their job. In the meantime the managers with racially mixed staff have their people watching the liberal white women’s staffs routinely come in late/leave early/take long lunches, and they resent the double standard (and they’re right).
The causes that many women support politically are often the reasons why no guy in his right mind would marry them. Guys dont want somebody who will butcher a baby in the womb, rob him of his future earnings for decades if the marriage doesnt work, and have some strange guy living in his former house with his children. There is simply little reason for a guy today to legally expose himself to marriage or fatherhood. Ive been married over 15 years, with kids, but the wife isnt American or progressive - shes old-school.
Hmm. Never looked at it either from this perspective. I guess some women just aren’t a great investment, are they? Emotionally or financially.
I don’t get it as we have a very traditional marriage. But, within that, I find PLENTY of ways to advance myself, my education, my career ..and I don’t have to sacrifice ANYTHING. It’s just mutual respect between my husband and I that drives it ....I don’t understand why women feel they need to separate themselves from men and/or their children to have what they want. If anything, you end up with SO much MORE.
I don’t know. I guess I just married a good guy, maybe.
One thing i’ve seen many couples do is instantly start out with separate checkbooks and bank accounts. Just another way to stay separate and not combine your lives. My husband and I have ALWAYS made it “both” of ours ...there is no line drawn. Whatever the other does, benefits us both. It’s a true partnership.
People need to reconsider their ideas about marriage — I think it would be the ONE thing that would fix our society’s social ills.
surely you didn’t think conservative women would be in that group
great post. Hubby and I are a team.
Joint accounts - none of this “mine” “yours” mentality.
We have sons and daughter and tell them the same thing....we are all in this together.
Pitting old against young? mother against child? men against women?
That’s what angry liberals do.
Youre trolling here, right? Please confirm. Thanks.
A lot of guys aren’t a good investment either; they’re the first ones to broadcast that, but the popular media thinks it can “fix” them (while denigrating them the whole time).
My wife and I have never kept separate accounts; if people are at that point maybe marriage isn’t for them.
Even when my wife and I have difficulties, I think at the end of the day we both feel fortunate.
