Yikes: Wendy Davis trails Greg Abbott in Texas among women
Hotair ^ | 04/15/2014 | AllahPundit

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 don’t 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.

gender

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:

race

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:

age

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.

Maybe white women are figuring out they are not long going to be treated as minorities by the left?

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.

They call her abortion Barbie because Klaus was already taken.

It means that most women under 45 are Hispanic.

It fits the mold of what I see in my own family. The 29-39 y/o’s are solidly liberal across the board.
