The few married women that voted for obama know this is true and likely feel it is better to ignore the poll rather than have just two or three married women show up. I guess it's kind of an embarrassing stat that makes lib women very uncomfortable.
    Well, as a lib women, I must say, doesn't make me uncomfortable at all. I think its fairly obvious (to me at least, I can't speak for others), why single women tend to vote Democratic. Conservatives are just that, conservative. The impression they give off through their political action, is that new/different is bad. The fact is, single women have only really had a significant & lasting place in the American economy for about 30 years. Little has changed about the Republican parties values in that time. There is a perception, that if the GOP had it's way, the only women who would hold office, would be stay at home mom's with kids who are grown. I'm not saying it accurate, but the general vibe, is that republicans don't care about the new problems facing single women in the world today, because if they just went off and got married, they wouldn't have to deal with them. The world continues to change whether conservatives like it or not. Damning those who enjoy those changes, only alienates voting bloc and send them straight to the other side.

    The stat may be accurate, but it don't think its accurate because of the reasons you think.

    Liberal women are naive, gullible, and impressionable. They believe what the loudest soapbox tells them to believe - and that just happens to be Democrats.

    Not to mention that the Democratic party has all the dreeeeeeeeeeamy boys.

    Slight hyperbole aside, I'm not exactly wrong. Granted, Republicans say some dumb crap, but you have to admire the Democrats for fooling women into the idea that Republicans declared "war" on them.

    The concept that Republican women are "barefoot and pregnant" is beyond antiquated.

    Your absolutely right here, that statement was far too general, and not what I meant to convey. What I should have said, is that I don't think the statistics support the conservatives narrative I hear most often. I should not have made it sound like I was presuming to know your interpretation of the statistics. I apologize

    I don't think the Republicans declared "war on women", I just don't think they understand the values of this newest generation of women. Republicans by their nature don't want to progress and change. That's fine, but the women who do, are never going to vote for them, for that reason.

    Also, I have no idea where the barefoot and pregnant Republican women thing came from. I've never heard Republican women described like that.
