To Hold Senate, Democrats Rely on Single Women {More Like "Single White Women"!]

To Hold Senate, Democrats Rely on Single Women By JACKIE CALMES JULY 2, 2014

Senator Kay Hagan, center, a North Carolina Democrat struggling to secure a second term, recently has shown gains in polls.

RALEIGH, N.C. — The decline of marriage over the last generation has helped create an emerging voting bloc of unmarried women that is profoundly reshaping the American electorate to the advantage, recent elections suggest, of the Democratic Party. What is far from clear is whether Democrats will benefit in the midterm contests this fall.

With their Senate majority at stake in November, Democrats and allied groups are now stepping up an aggressive push to woo single women — young and old, highly educated and working class, never married, and divorced or widowed. This week they seized on the ruling by the Supreme Court’s conservative majority, five men, that family-owned corporations do not have to provide birth control in their insurance coverage, to buttress their arguments that Democrats better represent women’s interests.

But the challenge for Democrats is that many single women do not vote, especially in nonpresidential election years like this one. While voting declines across all groups in midterm contests for Congress and lower offices, the drop-off is steepest for minorities and unmarried women. The result is a turnout that is older, whiter and more conservative than in presidential years.

Of course they will. White women are the single largest bloc of potential voters in the nation.

The main issue here should be race, not marital status.

Young Black college educated women vote almost 100% Democrat.

Young Hispanic women vote at least 75% Democrat.

Compare that to white women age 18-29 in the last election:

Romney 49% - Obama 48%

And, except for the 18-25 age group, they vote Republican in EVERY election.

They also use up 95% of the nation’s condoms. That causes global warming.

It's undeniable that without the women's vote the Obamanation would have been blown out in 2008.

“The decline of marriage over the last generation has helped create an emerging voting bloc of unmarried women that is profoundly reshaping the American electorate to the advantage, recent elections suggest, of the Democratic Party”

Thus another Liberal goal exposed inadvertently.

Destroy traditional marriage for future votes from a needy class.

Most single women vote for government largesse that is a direct threat to the well being of other, married women as well as men. Single women will be the economic ruin of this nation if they keep voting based on their lady bits and their need for security. They pride themselves on their independence, i.e. “I don’t need NO man!”, but they’re usually quite dependent on their husband, Uncle Sam.

No, they want security and safety.

Those other things are just what you have to institute to give it to them without depending on their individual actions and behaviors.

“single white women” that no rational man would want to marry or have a relationship with. Sandra Skank comes to mind. There is a reason why they are still alone.

I work with such women; they are angry that they don’t have the income tax advantages of children or mortgages, so they aren’t automatic Dems. Maybe because of the that, they also are very racist.

Dems get a higher percentage of all nonwhite, female categories than they do white women.

While I haven't been posting here all that long, that has to be on my top ten of dumbest posts I've seen. Maybe number 1.

Just another democratic party interest group that hates the other democratic party interest groups. None of these women want to live next to the disease ridden third worlders who have no respect for political correctness.

It is this combined with importing a 3rd World underclass that will mean the end of the GOP as a conservative party. There will be a party called the GOP but it will run claiming it will run the administrative/welfare state better than the other guy not challenging said state. Freedom only works for a responsible moral people and a 40% bastard rate means WE ARE DOOMED. The only freedom left is you can screw as many people and type of people as one wants with the rest of us picking up the tab of the consequences. Pills and Circuses!

How do white “single” women (unmarried, divorced, separated, widowed) vote in this age bracket? According to Gallup they voted overwhelmingly for Obama.

First of all, make sure you are looking at 2012 data, not 2008.

Second, I've never seen white single women broken down by age group.

However, that number would be in the raw data, so no doubt someone has done it.

Third, I'm using NEP exit polls, not Gallup.

NEP is what all the major news networks and elite newspapers use.

In 2012, NEP says the TOTAL white woman vote was:

Romney: 56%
Obama: 42%

NEP also reports the white women age 18-29 vote was:

Romney: 49%
Obama: 48%

Based on those two data points, I would estimate that young white single women voted around 44%-45% for Romney.
