-- just claims that he shape.
How right better than what it.
According to a new poll among single women President Obama as a two to one edge over Romney.
Meanwhile married to dig -- So why does Obama rate among those without -- well he's adorable odd given that but also single people like social issues while Mary -- the economy.
Having your job in protecting that paycheck means more than public nudity.
In which is also why Obama is -- campaign which promised government as has been spooked married women.
They realize that being married to the government means having a spouse who -- further into your life into your pocket.
It's one who makes rules for every aspect of your life what -- drink you can buy the car you can drive this is a spouse she can't divorce.
Don't this government isn't a delightful -- who -- flowers on your birthday it's one of -- stalkers who stares at you while you sleep.
Kimberly understands and I've stopped since they have but look if -- can't beat someone you still want support the government helps you think it's gonna be okay because you won't be alone.
And government doesn't leave the seat up.
So -- -- liberal women say they want to be strong and independent they also want government as a fallback.
Meanwhile married -- government as the do you did dump when it's time to find mr.
right roughly translated they grow up.
-- Kimberly you are single gal make it in this city yes there are Carrie Bradshaw but thank you much hotter.
What it does Obama speak to you because you're single and he can't.
And Excedrin headache that -- -- with the bubble bath if you know they meet its persisting and -- troubles son and I didn't like Kim when I was married and I still don't like him out and seeing how that.
About -- -- consistent but is this why you or a liberal because you know that it works -- single women.
It's a generation hot -- no.
Listen and I wanted to be careful what I say this because it please understand is when they originally had the constitution.
And when we're not allowed to vote.
And the sexist argument was that votes where their husbands do but the fact is we know from poll after poll that like political -- had -- -- together right.
Obama just terribly among particularly white men right.
And I'm not surprised -- and a household like that where they're the same.
Political persuasion that they'll vote against Obama single women.
Had to be more democratic suppose that I mean I I think -- husband -- -- -- -- -- not exactly so you I don't I didn't say.
I just by the hard -- that if you look apologetic when -- -- deliberately -- I -- if you look at polling data like minded political people tend to marry.
That what -- did take it one step further married women vote.
Rip up the Republican right yes yes let me stick therefore they're being influenced by their husband's politics who happened to be.
Republican vehicle or the remarkable woman is an implosion in -- -- her -- vote by the number that's not at a -- is great fun.
-- ruled that a split vote out of a -- -- front one X window because why wouldn't.
Up my wife a single C was liberal and they would she married me as C as I brainwashed her yes I see is now conservative -- -- -- -- and.
I thought I had a drug -- but if you marriages 50% Americas and and -- Boris -- maybe there are more split household then.
To think yeah we did a little deeper and in those poll -- explain what the net speaking of polls in digging deeper married women.
And what's the real the real issue married women.
Tend to show up single women done.
This is an interesting thing in this study that while -- roughly about the same number of married or single women are registered to vote the actual having reported.
In 2008 was 54 point 1% married women 31 point for percent single so.
Now there are lot more single women in American avenue where -- and 4040 -- maybe even ten years ago.
I'm so those numbers rise but -- when you actually need people to show up.
At the polls -- married women tend to show -- more.
Mean what he's that is not maybe because your husband's told them to -- -- I can't typical left.
-- yeah I knew this was going to be your heart.
-- -- -- Trying to -- -- I would try to take it seriously they just made this guy I'd just ahead in most household you'll find politically the that the people are the same political.
Party and for -- -- -- the other thing is it about women is that typical for a long time women would volunteer on campaigns and whether it be democratic or Republican but a lot for.
-- they didn't necessarily write checks are donate to campaigns but that's been changing.
On both sides Republican and Democrat well they did it volunteer than he -- hit on by Kennedy.
You know the other thing is I can't imagine that there are so -- dogs man out there women are single -- -- -- -- hard hard to -- man good man to marry.
I mean it -- particularly true the African American community.
Where there's you do there's did you decided just just -- there's not larger pool.
For women GQ ago too for America and stop no this isn't a -- -- -- -- -- Yeah.
This big -- an -- A there's and -- as it in the Atlantic I think it was there's an alarming article I thought it was fascinating about.
The choice women now that women have more of a choice over the years -- and their security isn't necessarily tied to an eight right whenever sort that -- was going to be.
That if you are gonna make a decision he he does tend to weed out people pretty quickly you can take care of yourself -- that I thought that that includes not only true there but.
At some of the young people when young women I know that still -- -- -- they would like to be.
Yeah and and or it in a committed relationship and it's hard on.
Bulls are based on city -- basically the idea Julia is itself -- filling prophecy we create a government that will replace.
The man or the partner in your life in.
There are no more -- -- that were put out.
Of somebody sent Megan very lucky like -- Eric whose wife was obviously charitable -- to format the ranks of the single signal but.
There are not that I mean it is let's face it -- objection -- -- right.
I mean men in this fight I've looked at him watch him they're just -- bringing.
Just their blunt instruments -- but there and -- think about only about things and oh.
What are your sharp there Monty -- -- daily and I thought I'm Bob -- being very careful way you're going because you only think about one thing that's true that's what -- -- There's not the one thing I can't understand about the fifty shades of gray phenomena and that.
And -- let's talk a lot about how they do not they don't what what we've heard for years right that you want to be independent and then this book that's about.
Dominating dominating somebody it is a major bestseller that nobody can stop -- yeah by the way I'll get back to you guys left -- -- but it I'm sorry I left it at a -- do you realize.
The products and no I haven't but I'm looking forward to it -- didn't -- it could this be about age -- just the fact that may be married people or older.
And within that system.
No I think bot on the heading he won't admit it I think he's exactly right in it based on the studies single women gravitate towards Obama married women gravitate toward Barack towards Romney while didn't -- an epiphany.
They simply may be are influenced by their husbands.
Well I who have -- be very favorable or of rob what about Russia and I had an earning a paycheck and and -- your tax dollars get stripped away from selling excellent I mean you know maybe you kind of wise up and that there would be the centrist and more conservative at that little that -- that was the case of receivers single women who.
Make a lot of money and they get tax is much.
Then why are they not breaking up into and I'll bet if you did a smaller sample size you might actually find that that's well I.
I and that while the unspoken thing -- that and that -- talk about.
Is and a lot of people women being afraid that should edit and this -- being perpetuated.
Should Republican winner office than the right to choose a woman's right to -- will be taken away what else you have women who are an image -- -- also right sorry thank you -- Women's groups are also -- -- extremely partisan they're very they're very very liberal -- Doubts big surprise endorsed Barack Obama it's like mice endorsing cheese and no big surprise here but -- -- endorsed Bill Clinton so.
I don't you know you know that that's -- about the thing about.
Blue collar men vote against certain of -- Obama is an all time low among blue collar -- in the polls.
Democratic presidential candidates had never broken 40% -- that group.
And -- those were married in that group are clearly conservative I do you think you find this phenomenon of a council voting in the same way.
And so I'm not surprised about that the blue collar voters and -- Obama needs he couldn't close to 40% of you get detonated mid -- you're in real trouble.
Some of his base like Hispanics has grown and that's an advantage but among single women his numbers have fought so it's gonna be -- very very close election.
But also of women -- Now there's a household income now.
And women look at that and you hear a lot of people the anxiety of people for their children and a debt that the children are going to inherit.
They worry for them and they wanna change because they don't think the last -- -- -- -- another pot if you know it's funny I was just thinking about picking juries and all the time like the young little -- is on the during the night.
Wide eyed and innocent don't know anything about.
The stress of what happens later with their kids and bills and mortgages and all of that and may -- relations if you have silly that they might tick him off the jury.
You wanna keep people who are married their homeowners that are in neighborhoods have really care and see where their money is going -- want to protect the neighborhood is ending.
-- that's right.
That's what you like you perpetuate this stuff about all you agreeing kid you kids drug can be separated -- -- -- that the other Obama.
And a lot of very people buy into that moment you're -- you're unbelievable -- we just found out today that per taxpayer.
We're we are now racking up 64000.
Dollars per taxpayer and you can thank President Obama if you wanna go over the years she -- -- -- -- -- bring it to -- you're here we're right we're both going to be here tomorrow we had to bring it into mom to show you why president how much annual debt they've racked up as -- -- is blowing away the field.
He's more than a trillion dollars more than the average of George Bush and it goes.
Beyond that you go back to the Clinton and Reagan.
Yeah but it's you can't even wracking yet it has spent a lot of money to get is had a recession.
-- day better and that that work -- the.
