Why do about 70% of single / divorced / unmarried women vote Democrat?

According to to the Women’s Voices Women’s Vote Action Fund:

Romney, for example, has the narrow backing of men, 48% to 44%, while Obama has a somewhat larger lead among women, 51% to 43%. That gender gap exists largely because Obama has overwhelming support, 71% to 19%, among single women.

Democratic strategists have said for many years that abortion, contraception and related issues have particular importance for how single women vote.

Unmarried women voted for Obama by a margin of 70-29 in the 2008 election. Now keep in mind that the Democrat party is for abortion, same-sex marriage, taxing and regulating job creators, massive deficits and spiraling debt. And the Democrats also support anti-family policies like pushing premarital sex onto young people at early ages, mandatory funding of failing public schools, no-fault divorce, and subsidizing welfare programs which make it easier for women to have fatherless children.

In fact, since women were given the right to vote, they have voted for the government to tax more, spend more and intrude more into the family. That’s not my opinion, it is based on research papers like this one. Now my question is this – why are so many single women voting for higher taxes, more government and less freedom?

Why single women vote the way they do

Single women vote the way they do, I contend, because they have been influenced by feminism on a very specific question. Before, women aspired to marriage and children and having a home of their own. But today, they seem to be more interested in making government take over the things that men used to take care of, so that men become optional. This frees up the woman to choose a man based on her feelings, rather than choosing one who is a good provider, protector and moral/spiritual leader. In fact, it is this resentment of male leadership – especially their moral judgments and exclusive truth claims – which women are rebelling against.

This explains why single women overwhelmingly vote for bigger government. The government is currently distributing tens of thousands of dollars from working men to single women to achieve this goal of releasing women from responsibility to men and the leadership of men. Single women are then left free to prefer less-demanding, less moral, less religious men based on superficial, emotional, selfish criteria. Entertainment, appearance, postmodernism, relativism, and universalism are the new male abilities in demand. Providing, protecting, chastity, fidelity and leading on moral and spiritual issues were the old male abilities, and are no longer in demand.

Here is my message to single women who vote Democrat: you can either marry the government and collect welfare or you can marry a real man. Marriage costs money for a man – and he earns that money by working. He can either work for the government and those who are dependent on the government, or he can work for you and the family and the private schools and the church and so on. You can’t have both. A dollar can either be spent by a man or spent by the government. Choose one. Bigger government means smaller men, and smaller government means bigger men.

    So what have the Republicans meaningfully done at the local, state, or federal level to curtail any of this? I don’t disagree with much of the analysis, but what have Republicans done? They controlled both houses of Congress some years ago. The federal government grew.

    At the state and local level, no Republican will come forward and propose that single people like me should NOT have to pay school property taxes for example. The Texas Republican governor and comptroller arm twisted Amazon into collecting sales tax.

    I could give many other examples of Republican failures, but you get the point.

  2. Perhaps a better analysis is to ask why Married women DO vote for Conservatives. Here are my observations of the many Married women I know (including my wife)

    — Many Married women have careers and business to build so they are very sensitive to tax policies & costly regulations, so the low tax low regulation approach of Conservatives would be more attractive.

    –Many Married women are full time Moms & run the household & manage the budget, which is a full time job, again would be very sensitive to tax policies & regulations when every dollar must be stretched at home.

    –Many Married women have kids to raise, so abortion likely is not on their mind and they wish to instill Conservative values of personal responsibility& self-sufficiency in their young children.

    –Many Married women have kids and are very sensitive to the future of the country for their kids, so issues like fiscal responsibility, school choice and national security are important Conservative values in common.

    In a nut shell, I find Married women tend to be more mature emotionally & experienced at life with a lot at stake & vote with their wallets & children in mind.

    Where as many single women are much younger with significantly fewer responsibilities & a bit naive on how the world works, resulting with votes inspired by emotional ideals.
