Research Shows That Married Women Are Less Likely To Vote For Obama

Women are likely to be a crucial voting bloc in the presidential election; typically, when Democrats don’t win a majority of female voters, they lose.

But the latest polling offers a window into how the ongoing national debate on women’s issues seems to be playing out among female voters — and Democrats and Republicans are taking note of a growing divide between married and unmarried women.

In February, 64 percent of unmarried women said they would vote for Obama over Mitt Romney, the presumptive Republican nominee, according to a Democracy Corps survey analyzed by Democratic pollsters. Only 31 percent picked the GOP candidate. The gap — 33 points — was 10 points bigger than in it was in January.

Now look at what married women say: 56 percent said they would vote for Romney, and only 37 percent for Obama, with virtually no change from January to February.

…In the 2010 midterms, for example, 58 percent of women who were married without children voted, as did 47 percent of married women with kids. But unmarried women stayed away from the polls — just 30 percent of unmarried women with kids voted, and 40 percent of unmarried women without children.

In the 2008 presidential race, unmarried women voted less than married women did, too, though at higher levels. Only 56 percent of single mothers voted, as did 61 percent of unmarried women; meanwhile, 69 percent of married women with children voted and so did 72 percent of married women without kids.

You would think that married woman with kids and healthcare concerns would be on the POTUS side, interesting…
