Skip to comments.Yikes: Wendy Davis trails Greg Abbott in Texas — among women
Posted on 04/15/2014 4:55:15 PM PDT by SeekAndFind
Via the Caller, pollster Kellyanne Conway surveys the state of the “war on women” in Texas: “Women get exhausted with women candidates who say they are pro-woman and then run on issues that real women dont say are most important to them.”
No worries. Wendy’s rolling out a plan for universal pre-K at a cool $750 million per year in taxpayer expense. That’ll show ‘em.
The favorability numbers are even starker. Among women, Abbott scores 35/27 while Davis clocks in at … 32/46. That’s basically identical to her 33/48 favorability among men. She ran on her biography, and this is where it got her.
This isn’t the only core constituency with whom she’s underperforming, though. If that earlier post about the CIS study on immigration bummed you out, here’s a ray of hope from Texas. All it takes to narrow the margin among Latinos in a red state is a terrible Democratic candidate who’s famous as an abortion warrior:
Even a bad Democrat is good enough to lead among Latinos in a conservative stronghold, but to scare Abbott she’d need to be somewhere around +30, not +10. There was speculation after she lost some of the heavily Latino southern counties to her no-name primary opponent that her abortion record had alienated some Catholic voters. These numbers will keep that theory alive.
It’s not all good news, though. Here’s a warning from the Ghost of Elections Future:
It’s true nationally and also true here — younger voters lean left. To some extent, though, the age split is a function of the state’s racial split: There are more Latinos under age 40 in Texas than there are whites, and the disparity is more pronounced among younger children (in fact, a majority of Texas public-school students are Latino). If a reliably Democratic group is overrepresented in a demographic that’s already more inclined to prefer Dems, having come of age when the country was souring on Bush and embracing Hopenchange, then yeah, even Wendy Davis will benefit. Not enough to win the election, but check back in 10 years and see how Governor Abbott’s numbers look then.
That last graphic, denoting age, shows me that Texas women under 45 are stupid. People in Texas aren’t buying what Wendy is selling.
I should have added that Davis can’t win THAT demographic either!
The priests at those Hispanic people’s churches need to remind them that their immortal souls are in peril for voting for an abortion enthusiast.
Poor abortion barbie! Perhaps she will have to find a new husband to use & lose to make herself feel better?
But but, according to the media, women love abortion..guess not..guess some women have some morals about not wanting to murder innocent babies..I know some call Wendy Davis “Abortion Barbie” that is an insult to the Barbie Doll..Id much rather just call her a b*tch
Maybe white women are figuring out they are not long going to be treated as minorities by the left?
Maybe she could borrow Jay Carney’s family and photoshopper??
RE: That last graphic, denoting age, shows me that Texas women under 45 are stupid.
These women are the FUTURE of the state. The public schools and the MSM seems to have done a good job brainwashing them.
The future does not look good for the Lone Star State.
The majority of the hags, most imported from Leftist states, who invadedr the Texas capitol to chant, “Hail, Satan!” as they lusted for the blood of babies did not go over well with the decent women of Texas.
Texas just does’t have that many women who follow Satan or the Democrat Party.
Yeah but Wendy is leading among the sluts.
Yeah but Wendy is leading among the sluts.
What a loser. The Dems will be crushed in the midterm.
A triple threat! Abortion, whore, communist; all wrapped into 1 package!
They call her abortion Barbie because Klaus was already taken.
“That last graphic, denoting age, shows me that Texas women under 45 are stupid”
It means that most women under 45 are Hispanic.
Must not be good Catholics.
I can see this headline the 3 news networks tonight!
That’ll put a crimp in her catheter.
It fits the mold of what I see in my own family. The 29-39 y/o’s are solidly liberal across the board.
