Many Single Women, A Key Bloc, Are Avoiding GOP [Unmarried Women Voted 67% Obama to 31% Romney!]

Many Single Women, A Key Bloc, Are Avoiding GOP By By NICHOLAS RICCARDI

DENVER (AP) — Sara Stevenson spends her working hours surrounded by Republicans, namely the married men who work alongside her in a Denver oil and gas firm company. But after hours and on weekends, she usually spends her time with other single women, and there's not a Republican in sight among the bunch.

"There was just no way I could have supported any Republican this year," said Stevenson, 31. "They skew so much to the religious right. ... They focused so much on taxes. It's not something that women in my demographic really care about. I've never heard my friends lament their taxes."

As Republicans dust off their Election Day drubbing last month, their party must confront the reality that the ranks of unmarried women are growing rapidly, and these voters overwhelmingly have backed Democrats for decades.

How many eligible female voters (single and otherwise) sat out the election altogether or voted third party?

Some women voted for Dr. Jill Stein, Green Party, especially in states were Obama was probably going to win anyway.

Without a husband and a family, they need someone to support them and provide them with some sort of financial security. It’s one of those “first time” things that the campaign ad with the HBO bimbo in it was talking about. Once you’ve been in the sack with a ‘RAT politician, you’ll never go back.

This is not rocket science.

Women who are single still desire security, and they look to Uncle Sam/Sugar since they don’t have a man.

They are also unlikely to have a strong opinion that isn’t considered “cool.” Most are also not deep thinkers.

I say this as a single 26/f. These are my friends. And they are morons.

My sister in law, a 30 something liberal from California made the statement when Obama won, “At least my uterus is safe now”. Can you think of a more ignorant statement, and oh ya, she is one of those professional student types. Been going to college for about 16 years and still doesn’t have a meaningful degree and works part time retail. My wife about decked her. Can’t believe they are from the same family.

So much for feminism and how women can be like men in the workforce. They are still women searching for security and the state is their husband instead of an individual man.

Unmarried Women Voted 67% Obama to 31% Romney!

That's nothing. There was another group probably ten times bigger that went 100% Øbama to 0% Romney!

That's right, not even one single stupid-block voter cared to vote Romney.

Yep, these women don't give a rip about taxes, they are preoccupied with sex, contraception, abortion, booze and drugs. The ghetto jive image Jugears projects fits right into the category of the type of bad boy these women want or associate with. The ones that they can hook up with for a night, the ones who can get the drugs they want.

I wonder what percentage of abortions are by white girls aborting black (fathered) babies?

This article is the result of a site supported by Soros disinformation; long on assertions, short on facts.

How did single men of the same age range vote? Without knowing that, the high percentage is meaningless. The same idiot BS as advertisers addressing the ignorant and dull-witted ---NEWER! BETTER! Totally meaningless.

If in fact women are that intellectually inferior and emotionally driven, which I doubt, they can join the African parasites brigade. I suppose if a cultural missing gene can create one group, it can create another.

What percentage of these single women supporting Dims are also single moms on welfare, the welfare recepient component of that winning coalition Obama said he thought could help Dims win?

Not surprised that these great ‘analysts’ failed to provide that portion of the data concerning single women.

A bigger coalition and a more leftist coalition is the unchurched! Coalition is probably not a good decription because I’m not sure that they are organized, but they hate all things Christian and Jewish — a traditional values.

one might have thought that single young women would be interested in a prosperous economy with lots of jobs and business opportunities for them to pursue?

there’s something wrong with this picture...
(or maybe the R party was just abysmally terrible at communicating one of its strongest campaign messages — restoring the American economy and jobs again ? )

It seems seriously doubtful that more than a few single young women really want a life on the dole ... even with free Obamaphones thrown in... ??????

I think that you are right on. I suspect that these women do not even realize why they are making such a decision.

I continue to be amazed that so many voters are willing to retain in office someone they know practically nothing about.

Add to this group the voting bloc that votes for the Democrats because they received an Obamaphone. They say things like "Romney sucks," but they cannot say why, or even anything about his positions and policies. This is our country today.

I'm not sure that can be said of Black and Hispanic voters. But the attraction to wealth redistribution seems to trump everything else.

“As Republicans dust off their Election Day drubbing last month, . . . .”

Did the GOP really get beat that badly??

BO won by a few percentage points. A few hundred thousand extra votes across 10 swing states would have changed the election.

Is that really a “drubbing”?

Of 33 Senate seats up for election, 23 or so were Democrat, 10 or so Republican. The 'pubbies STILL managed to suffer a net loss with Obama at the top of the ticket. Yes, that was a drubbing.

My state tried this about 15 yrs. ago. All the single mom Sandra Flukes out there started picking random male names out of the telephone directory and began listing them as the father of their love child on the welfare forms. Acrimony and chaos ensued, as you can imagine.

Well, from my observations of many conservative men, they like to date liberal women because they are slutty and cheap and easy, and then complain after they marry them when the same women cheat and divorce them and run off with half their net worth and the kids.

So maybe the demographic is not single women so much as slutty women. But respectable intelligent conservative women make up that thirty-some percent.

“....the ranks of unmarried women are growing rapidly”.

Looks like the “me” generation is not producing “we” couples. Ol’ Sara here is 31 & still hanging out at the bar with all her undesirable girl friends. Undesirable because Feminism has made them into shallow, self-centered b!tches, more interested in their rights (entitlements) & vaginas than their actual desirability.

Some will eventually marry for money, or out of loneliness & desperation, "cougars" needing a boy toy; or have kids without a father, for company (entertainment), spawning more maladjusted fools & fodder for the divorce lawyers.

They aren’t financially interested, so that is why the taxes they pay don’t offend them. I try to educate my female friends on a regular basis. When the commercial about how much Romney paid on his investment income ran, I took every opportunity to explain that he has already paid regular tax on his income and this is investment income. And taxing investment income at a higher rate will hurt retirees that live on their investment income; it isn’t just the rich.

But unfortunately, these women are more worried about their birth control, abortion, makeup, hairdos, concerts, and “feelings” than financial health.

No longer possible; not only are DNA tests a lot cheaper and faster these days, but if the sluts are forced to pay for the test, plus a hefty fine and/or jail time if they play that game, I assure you that game will come to a screeching halt.

And for this reason, I postulate that conservatives should abandon their opposition to abortion. We should make sure that these women never reproduce, and as an added benefit, we should provide free tubal ligations to make future fecundity impossible.

Evolution works, people. Use it to our advantage. They want abortion on demand... give them abortion on demand. Give them more than abortion on demand - give them what liberals so frequently approve of in China.

In about two generations, they’re done and gone. Problem solved.

You’re vastly overestimating the intellectual horsepower of the majority of today’s young women.

I’ve met many of them in my travels. Most have no higher thoughts about “big subjects” at all. Everything is driven by emotion and “feelings,” and their ability to do any sort of mathematics is nearly nil. Those stupid magazines you see in the checkout line at Wally World aren’t exercises in disposing of glossy paper. They publish that pablum because it *sells*. And it doesn’t sell to middle aged white males. Or middle aged females. Or elderly folks. Those magazines are going after the 17 to 35 age bracket of single women.

Republicans (and conservatives) continue to make this mistake around female voters: The campaign strategists keep believing that women “think about the issues.”

Wrong. The vast majority of women “feel,” they don’t “think.” Some married female voters might start thinking, if only because they’ve been around one man long enough to know that not everything every damn day is about their feelings, and they’ve had their husband explain this to them - more than once.

Was it a ‘drubbing’? At the Presidential level it was not, except in the sense that Obama has been such a terrible President that it should have been a landslide for the GOP. But we can blame that on the candidate inherently pro-Democrat demographic changes. It also wasn’t a drubbing in the House or in State races.

But it was a drubbing in the Senate. It was a widespread drubbing where both bad and good Republican candidates lost. We had idiots like Mourdock lose. We had solid sensible conservatives lose. We had popular moderates like Tommy Thompson lose (to a lesbian!). We had retreads like Allen lose to slimeball opponents. We snatched defeat from the jaws of victory in allegedly very conservatives states like North Dakota and Montana. We lost to unpopular, extremely vulnerable incumbents like McCaskill and Nelson.

The Senate was an ass whooping. It was a disaster. Maybe we should have seen it coming after the disappointment of the 2010 Senate races. Taken together, the lost opportunities for 2010 & 2012 would equal a solid GOP majority if things had gone our way.

“In a nutshell, here’s why Obama won and the nation is in a death spiral”

In a nutshell Romney lost for two reasons. The first being massive voter fraud, the second being a couple million republicans stayed home that voted for McCain in 2008. The only women that voted for the communist are pro-abort women, the majority of them being single. You will hear of no single woman who voted republican in 2008, then switched and voted for Obamagabe. They don’t exist. Pro-aborts voted for the communist.

It's no wonder so many young guys are not getting married any more.

So, who wants to marry a stupid, clueless, feminist chick who thinks Obama is "cool"? It seems like that's about all that are left out there to pick from once the few good ones get scarfed up.

It is a better deal to move in for sex for a few months (and with these chicks, that is easy to do). When she starts getting pushy, leave and hang out with your buddies until you get horny again.

Besides, it saves oodles on divorce lawyer fees and settlements that put you in the poor house for life - not to mention the wear and tear on your anti-nag circuit. Because that's what you're going to get from these jaded chicks!

Me? I've been happily married to the same wonderful woman for 42 years. She stayed home to raise our kids, despises the feminists, loathes Liberals, bakes cookies for our grandkids, and is happy I have guns around the house to protect her!

What more could I ask for? Certainly not a stupid Obama lover!

Good analysis. I was starting to think that only I was getting tired of all this advice to Pubbies that has been everywhere lately.

I’d say the two are voter fraud and media bias, but that is probably why many voters stayed home.

BUT unless something addresses these two issues, it is really a mute argument.

I also don’t think any of the other Pubbies could have done better. In fact I think they would have probably done worse due to problem #2.
