Many single women,
a key bloc, are avoiding GOP

Associated Press, by Nicholas Riccardi

DENVER- 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

As a woman I hate to say this, but most women are very shallow. Have you ever seen a woman carry on about a broken finger nail? Have you ever been to a gathering where you try to have an intelligent conversation about a topic of the day and find women disinterested? I know that I am stereotyping, but this has been my experience amongst so called educated women; Oy!

When will I be given the choice to vote for a candidate who is a social liberal and a fiscal conservative? It seems that if I want fiscal responsibility in government that I have to also accept the morality and pronouncements of the religious right.

I agree with #1. Plus many young single women need abortion as a back-up plan, government provided, preferably.

"There are just so many off-putting comments from the Republican party," Stevenson said. "It´s crazy to me that they´re still acting as if women are a niche market."

Aren´d Dems, AP and the rest of the media doing the same thing?

#6 is absolutely correct and that Stevenson does not know this is sad evidence that many single women are "low information" voters. Note I did not say "all", just many. Democrats invented, honed and routinely employ identity politics, as does the MSM. If you are a single woman and think you are not identified, bundled and objectified as a quantified entity by the Democratic Party, you have a lot of intellectual catching up to do. It boils down to paying attention, not to what you may feel is interesting, but to what is important. You are going to have contraceptives if you need them, whether you buy them or the government does. You are not going to have anything - job, savings and contraceptives - unless the government gets deficit spending and the national debt under control, boring or not.

I would like to think that there is a way to promote fiscal sanity (we´re miles and miles from conservatism in this country!) and societal sanity (again we´re miles and miles away from any kind of conservatism) that isn´t off-putting to single women.

I am trying to understand what more the electorate could want. Maybe we argue "sustainability". We must have safety nets that are sustainable.

Or maybe they won´t be happy until they have all of my money.

Would an appeal to fairness reach them? Or do they then just say they want my money "for someone else"?

Sara Stevenson is only 31. These days you can reach the age of 31, and still be young and foolish.

She still has her head stuffed full of Leftist bilge. She probably went to public school, followed by a Leftist college.

It took me until the ripe old age of 30 to become a conservative, and at that point, I´d had the benefit of being married and having children. Those things made me grow up.

So there is hope for Sara, but not if she continues to choose a "Sex and the City" lifestyle, condemning herself to a lonely and bitter end.

The Millennial Generation simply refuses to grow up.

I would love to meet the woman who is quoted as saying she doesn´t want a family, isn´t ready to be responsible for children. I´d tell her that it is fine that she doesn´t start a family yet but it isn´t fine that she expects me to be her safety net. If you´re not ready to care for others, that´s okay but she´s old enough to be responsible for her own life.

Who raised these pathetic losers?

Very good posts here, but I wish that the more libertarian minded like poster #2 would come to understand that fiscal conservatism and social conservatism are inextricably intertwined, politics notwithstanding. People who are clueless or undisciplined in their personal behaviors have created a society which is increasingly dependent on government, and reflects that dependency in its voting patterns.

They don´t call the GOP the stupid party for nothing. Putting down women is about the supidist thing you could do.

The GOP should have taken the senate this year except for their stupidity in candidates. Women will never tolerate that. Learn, grow or die.

A child born to a single woman is half an orphan. If anything happens to the mother, that child has no parents. This dramatically increases risk and insecurity for the child. That child is also denied the resources and support that a father´s extended family would have offered. Half the number of uncles, aunts, and cousins. Half the number of grandparents. No division of labor between two active, committed parents. No diversity in parenting approaches between mother and father. Who among us would choose that childhood for ourselves? Who in their right mind would choose that for their child?

It´s not about what the single mother wants. It´s about what´s best for the child, and who speaks for that child. Accidents happen, misfortune abounds, and our children are hostages to fate. As a society, we need to give them every advantage we can. Voluntary single motherhood is a bad idea that places children at greater risk. That´s the point where morality and practicality coincide.

...until 50% get married, have children and support a husband who is working his butt off to pay the bills...then they realize life and politics do not revolve around abortion and freebies...that is why the dems must go after the airhead-female-vote to replace the level headed group that they lose every year!!!

The women, regardless of education and position, almost always grabbed the lifestyle section first, then the local news and then maybe the national news.

Whether male or female, liberals tend towards emotion rather than logic. There is no proof, for instance, that more gun control would prevent tragedies like the one that happened this week or that higher taxes on "the rich" will generate more revenue or solve our economic problems. They respond to logic with name-calling.

Maybe economic issues like taxes are not important to single women because maybe they don´t pay a lot of income taxes. Most liberal young people become more "conservative" as they get older because they begin to see how much government gets from their hard work in the form of taxes. Single women don´t appear to me to be an opportunity for Republicans to win. Unless the Republicans become the Democrats then we are just one happy party and can get along together.

#2: Social liberalism and fiscal conservatism are polar opposites. You can´t be fiscally conservative, truly, and socially liberal. Fiscal conservatism is about spending money wisely on only the necessities to run government.

Social liberalism wants to dump tax dollars on ´starving artists´ and people who refuse to work....among other things....that government should never be involved in funding in the first place.

You need to choose which is more important to you: fiscal conservatism or social liberalism.

If I may offer my advice: choose fiscal conservatism so you can keep more of what you earn. That way you can donate as much of your own money as you wish to those who need it. Or you can organize others to donate as much as they would like to your cause of choice.

I´ve worked most of my adult life, and #1 is correct- most of the women I work with are pretty stupid about politics and economics (and I work in a business office!)One told me that she thought Obama was doing a fine job, and got furious when I asked her if spending a trillion dollars on a "jobs bill" that didn´t create a single job was "fine."

"Single men are also significantly more likely to back Democrats than Republicans, but that is largely a function of their age, because they are largely younger. Unmarried women, however, are more evenly spread across all age groups and consistently lean Democratic"

So, apparently the married women are polygamous heads of household with multiple husbands? Or do men just die a lot younger to avoid having to hook up with these vapid women?
Numbers, please.

It really amuses me that these single women are portrayed as "independent" strong women, when in fact they are the opposite. Instead of a husband, they are relying on the government and being dependent on it for their "safety net". The real difference is that in the case of a husband, she/they rely on their own money, while in the case of the government, they are relying on someone else´s money through taxes.

The Peter Pan syndrome doesn´t just apply to a lot of young men. Sara is a product of media brainwashing and the new ´culture.´ On the other hand the last campaign by Republicans was beyond belief. I can´t believe there isn´t some kind of organized response to the up is down DNC message, but I don´t think I´ll ever see an effective challenge from the RNC. The looming reality might teach Sara a tiny bit. We are all in for a lot of painful lessons if history is any kind of guide.

U.S. military assets in the Black Sea are on high alert amid reports Ukraine troops traded gunfire Tuesday with pro-Russian militants. A journalist with Associated Press reported intense gunfire at an airport in eastern Ukraine after the government sent in army troops to retake control from militiamen loyal to Russian President Vladimir Putin. The mayor of Kramatorsk told the Associated Press that Ukrainian troops have now occupied the military airport and are blocking its entrance. The action comes a day after the revelation a Russian fighter jetted buzzed a U.S.S. destroyer multiple times over the Black Sea.

House Democrats are rolling out a new strategy to target 30 House Republicans on immigration reform during the two-week congressional recess, marking a last-ditch effort to force GOP action on a legislative overhaul. The new pressure tactic includes a memo distributed to those 30 districts held by Republicans who have expressed public support for some sort of immigration reform, many of them backing a pathway to citizenship for millions of undocumented immigrants in the United States. Democrats hope the document — which highlights statements made by those Republicans in favor of reform, as well as data showing the district-specific economic

Is Scott Walker on his way to
2016 front-runner status?

Scott Walker has a 16 point lead (56-40) among likely voters in his race for governor, according to a poll from Wisconsin Public Radio/St. Norbert’s. Among registered voters, his lead is essentially the same (55-40). The survey was conducted between March 24 and April 3. A Marquette University survey conducted between March 20-23 also showed Walker with a nice, though smaller, lead. In that poll, Walker outdistanced Democrat Mary Burke 48-41. Revealingly, Walker fares well in an electorate that does not seem particularly conservative and that, if anything, appears to be slightly to the left of American voters in general.

This is deeply disturbing, and anyone—or any university—who values ethics should be concerned. Why is this? Because he was part of the failed Obama administration?

When Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee Steve Israel (N.Y.) was asked Sunday whether he thinks his Republican colleagues are racist, he responded with a frankness that is rare in politics and even less common when it comes to sensitive issues like race. "Not all of them, no, of course not," Israel said on CNN´s "State of the Union." "But to a significant extent, the Republican base does have elements that are animated by racism. And that´s unfortunate." Israel´s not the only high-ranking Democrat to advance some version of that argument recently. House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) said that Republican reluctance

Carson, the former director of pediatric neurosurgery at Johns Hopkins Hospital, recalls the events surrounding his 2013 speech in his new book, One Nation: What We Can All Do To Save America’s Future. The Daily Caller obtained an advance copy of the book, which is set for release May 20. “He did not appear to be hostile or angry,” Carson writes of Obama, “but within a matter of minutes after the conclusion of

And in 2012, despite the struggles of his first term, Mr. Obama still managed to win the support of a full 60% of voters age 18-29. But the man who once dreamed of being a transformative leader in the Reagan mold is inspiring few of those young people to follow his lead.

On Saturday, I wrote about the standoff at Bundy Ranch. That post drew a remarkable amount of traffic, even though, as I wrote then, I had not quite decided what to make of the story. Since then, I have continued to study the facts and have drawn some conclusions. Here they are. First, it must be admitted that legally, Bundy doesn’t have a leg to stand on. The Bureau of Land Management has been charging him grazing fees since the early 1990s, which he has refused to pay. Further, BLM has issued orders limiting the area on which Bundy’s cows can

Chelsea Clinton says when people ask her these days whether she wants to go into politics, her answer isn’t an automatic “no.” The 34-year-old former first daughter told Fast Company in an interview published Monday, “for so long the answer was just a visceral no.

The president of WWU has stated that his explicit goal is to reduce the white population on campus, according to Campus Reform. “I’ve said before and I’ll say it

Hank Aaron’s recent comments about the need for America to realize that racism is still very much alive and thriving — only now due to those who wear “neckties and starched shirts” rather than KKK hoods — has sparked an angry backlash and many fans are turning the tables, calling the baseball legend himself a racist. “Hank Aaron is a s*****g piece of [expletive] [racial slur],” one man said in an email to the Atlanta Braves’ front office, one of the teams Mr. Aaron used to play for, CBS News reported. “My old man instilled in my mind from a
