ALL their “WE LOVE YOU, WOMEN” slobbering did almost nothing for the GOP yesterday. The party lost female voters once again by a large margin. According to Politico:
After all the discussion of Obama’s play for women — and his effort to make Romney appear extreme on women’s issues — the president won among female voters by 12 points. He took 55 percent of the demographic, compared with 43 percent for Romney — not far off from 2008, when he won women by 13 points.
In particular, the president won big among unmarried women, who backed the president by a whopping 38 points, 68 percent to 30 percent.
That’s at least partly because in the modern world, a significant minority of single woman are married to the state.
