What is Wrong with Female Voters?
Cnn.com Exit Polls ^

Posted on 11/13/2001 8:13:31 PM PST by FF578

What is wrong with Female Voters in the United States? If you take a look at elections since 1980, Female Voters vote increasingly liberal.

Let's take a look at the 2000 Election for example.

If you count Only the Male Vote. Bush would have won in a Landslide. Losing only the States of Illinois, New York, New Jersey, Massachuttes, Connecticut, Rhode Island, Hawaii, and the District of Columbia.

If you count only the Female Vote, Gore Would have won in a Landslide, with Bush only winning the States of : Montana, Idaho, Utah, Wyoming, Colorado, North Dakota, South Dakota, Nebraska, Oklahoma, Kansas, Texas, Alaska, Louisiana, Alabama, Mississippi, Georgia, North Carolina, South Carolina, Kentucky and Indiana.

Why is this? What makes the Female American Voter so liberal? This is important because Women vote in larger numbers (7 Million More) Than men.

The biggest difference is single females that need a good man. Married women tend to vote more like men.

The Femi-Nazi's claim it is because women want Abortions, Lesbian and Homosexual Rights, ect...

I have a hard time believing this, but the numbers don't lie.

This has been a continuing trend since 1980. If the 22nd Amendment had never been passed, Not Only would we not have had to deal with 8 years of Clintoon, at least 10 less Demonrat Senators would be in office today.

Are Women more Liberal than men? Could that be the answer?

CNN knows the answer. These female voters see the government as a daddy or a better husband than they have.

You can freepmail me with the chart, I'll try it.

Too complicated to answer. Extremist feminism has caused a lot of hard feelings in this country among men.

Sex free from responsibility means that women aren't finding husbands.

Women and children need good husbands and fathers in their lives, and absent that, they'll shack up with Uncle Sam. It's called self-preservation, and while not totally honorable, is completely understandable.

One of the more popular theories (to which I lend some validity) is that there are a large pool of women who are knocked-up then abandoned by some irresponsible slack-jawed male who should be a steer instead of a bull.

Trouble is, the males in that category tend to be overwhelmingly liberal as well-- they won't take responsibility for their actions either so want the gubmint to do it.

The jilted ladies are, in effect, cutting their own throats by making big government Daddy, husband and ATM all rolled into one. The responsibile men (and women) end up paying not only for the jilted ladies but the irresponsible ferral males which put them in the situation of looking to big gubmint for solution.

Maybe it is more that married women tend to be more conservative (by definition...they are married) and single women tend to be more liberal...also single women (never married) tend to be younger...and more liberal...as we all grow up and get our hormones under control, we have more sense...and become more conservative.

It is interesting to think about though. We tend to think of California as an Ultra-Liberal State, but males in California 48% Bush to 47% Gore While Women Voted 58% Gore to 37% Bush more than enough to tip the State to Gore.

Same goes in other Big States like Pennsylvania. Men in Pennsylvania Voted 54% for Bush and 44% for Gore, While Women Voted 58% Gore and 40% Bush, again more than enough to tip the State for Gore. We are always told that the Union Voters lost Pennsylvania for Bush, but most Union Voters are Male, it seems the Soccer Mom Idiots are the real problem.

Well, right off hand, I'd say women tend to be much more pro-gun control, as well as pro- (euphemistically speaking) "reproductive rights."

I think it is because single women don't have a man to help provide support so they look to the state for handouts. There is something in the female psyche that needs security, without a partner they look to the state fill the role.

Also, remember "As Good as it Gets":

Question to romance novelist (Jack Nicholson): "How do you write women so well?"

Answer: "I think of a man...and take away reason and accountability."

Women are often one issue voters. Many believe that they have the right to suck the brains out of a baby during birth.

What makes the Female American Voter so liberal?

A) A Government check

B) The silly idea you can get something for nothing

C) The failure to see that abortion is wrong

D) They are all victims

Repeal the 19th Amendment!! I couldn't believe all the stupid, idiotic women fawning over Al Gore and that disgusting kiss at the Dem convention. It's no wonder men didn't want women to vote in the first place. Can't say I blame them.

I'll trade women voting for women taxes any day. Imagine all conservative houses' and senates' in every state and Congress. Republican presidents as far as the eye can see. Elected Democrats are really conservative instead of the other way around.

In other words, with only women voting President Bush carried the South and the West. It's those Blue Zone Women. Don't lump all of us together. We did our part in Kentucky.

Some females like the idea of having other people responsible for their well-being - the well-known leftist party lets them demand goodies paid for by others. LBJ said, after the Great Society stuff, that he may have lost the white male for that thieving party - sure enough, since LBJ, no Democrat pres. has got a majority of the white male vote. Some of them like the "you pay - we get" deal just fine.

I wonder how many of those 7 million women voters are over age 68. If there were 7 million more women on Social Security than men, this would certainly account for a lot of the 'rats' advantage.

"as we all grow up and get our hormones under control, we have more sense...and become more conservative."

Ahhhhhh......but we have always had liberals, and now we have even more liberals because it's taking the rugrats longer and longer to grow up.

Goodness, most of the THIRTY-SOMETHING GUYS that my husband works with are single, and have no plans on marrying. Actually, a couple do. When they find the right woman who makes as much as they do. She also "has" to keep working. They'll "think about" kids. Seriously.

I think a lot of the women who vote Dem are also working women with kids, who don't have time (take time) to UNDERSTAND the REAL issues....and watch CNN, CBS, MTV, ABC, et. al....that's the window they see all their "politics" through, and we all know how "objective" those media outlets are.

Go for it big boy. If you want to take my vote away, I will be glad to let you men pay for all the government you enact. And remember that I live in one of the states where women's votes carried the day for President Bush. Be careful what you ask for, you might just get it.

I have always felt that it is related to the reason that many women do not score well on math and science tests. Many of the women that I know well do not think "logically"...they react and emote..tend to "talk" about problems rather than solve them. Hence, women usually do better in subjects like "language arts" and sociology. I find the ladies on this forum a welcome breath of fresh air.

Democrats feed on this "I feel for you" mentality; while conservatives solve problems.

Please note my screen name..."gal".

Actually with Just the Women Voting, Bush Won PARTof the South, He would have Lost Florida, Virgina, Arkansas, Missouri, West Virginia, and Tennessee. The Vote Totals in Bush States in the South are so close for Gore as well. For Example, in Georgia Both Men and Women Voted for Bush, Men Voted 60% Bush and 37% Gore, while Women Voted 51% Bush 48% Gore.

In your State of Kentucky Men Voted 61% Bush 37% Gore, while Women Voted 52% Bush, 45% Gore.

The Only States with Wide Margins of Both Women and Men Voters going for Bush are Utah, Idaho, Wyoming, and. Nebraska.

Even in Utah there is a difference, Men Voted 75% Bush 21% Gore, while Women Voted 60% Bush 36% Gore.

If you count Only the Male Vote. Bush would have won in a Landslide. Losing only the States of Illinois, New York, New Jersey, Massachuttes, Connecticut, Rhode Island, Hawaii, and the District of Columbia.

I think a more poignant question is what's wrong with the MEN in these states? The majority of men in those states are obviously eunuchs.

Thanks for the breakdown on the statistics. You have included some states I normally wouldn't consider Southern states, especially, WVA, but I was talking with a broad stroke with my South and West comment. In your State of Kentucky Men Voted 61% Bush 37% Gore, while Women Voted 52% Bush, 45% Gore. I am still proud of the job we did in Kentucky.

I can give my opinion on the standards of California. There is an increased rate of divorce and "dead beat dads" in our state. Therefore, there is an increase of women voting in Dorks that promise them health care and get this, "FREE CHILD CARE". Free to them, but, I'm paying a huge sum to cover them with my tax dollars.

There is something in the female psyche that needs security...

That really about sums it up. Men tend to be more aggressive and therefore value freedom relatively highly. Women tend to seek security and value it more highly than freedom.

You can explain it on grounds of evolution, cultural mores, childbearing and rearing, physical strength, hormones, sex-roles, whatever. They all lead to the same outcome.

There are of course many exceptions to the rule, but those women who do not have security provided by a man or a family tend to seek it where they can, often from government. Men tend to be more self-reliant (or else self-destructive).

Voting patterns just follow.

98% of them are complete morons. Before I get flamed, I should point out that 98% of men are complete morons, too... they're just more likely to happen to be led by their faulty reasons to accidentally vote for the right candidate. Humanity consists almost entirely of drooling, mindless cretins. Trying to explain 'why' they do something is similar to divining the motivations of an insect or bacteria.
