GOP Strategist: ďItís devastating." --- Majority Of American Women NOW Side With Democrats

When the Wall Street Journal/NBC News survey asked last summer which party should control Congress, a slim 46-42 percent plurality of women said it should be the Democrats.

But in a survey released Monday, compiling polling since the beginning of the year, that figure had widened considerably to a 15-point advantage for the Democrats, according to polling by the team of Democratic pollster Peter Hart and Republican Bill McInturff. Fifty-one percent favored Democratic control; only 36 percent wanted to see the Republicans in charge.

Both sides have tried to shape the narrative in this battle for and about women. But many Republicans are beginning to wish they had never waded into what has become a heated conversation over contraception, who should have it and what it says about people who use it.

A prominent GOP strategist, who requested anonymity to discuss the partyís situation frankly, said: ďItís devastating. I donít think itís going to go away. I think itís going to be a significant challenge the Republican nominee is going to inherit.Ē

32. Their ego is so big, that they truly believe that they "create their own reality."

They think nothing can take them down. The media has helped in this regard by throwing them softball questions during interviews & not calling them out on their lies. They think they are invincible.

The reality that they think they control, & the reality that is, are two different things. The two realities are now so out of whack it's becoming apparent to more & more people - even those who don't want to admit it - like other repubs!

110. Reply to CrispyQ 'They create their own reality'

 

CrispyQ you're exactly right. The GOPs are out of touch with reality. They live in their ivory towers and cobble together a version of the world that suits them and as long as they can stay shielded by their palatial mansions, Italian sports cars, luxury yachts and Prada they can continue to believe what they will. But it's not just the money-that'd be bad enough. They also presume to force their twisted, mutated strain of morality with its double standards, loopholes and exclusion clauses on the rest of us. When people like this encounter a good, hard dose of REALITY (not the fantasy construct world they secrete around themselves like a caddis fly's case) they cry 'et tu brutei!' and retreat behind a wall of lies, name calling, buck passing and character assasination. There was a member of my family who died recently (and she will be missed by few who truly knew her) who lived in the same form of false reference. The Goppers have the most incredible aptitude for self delusion I have ever known or cared not to.

40. 51% seems like a baseline type number.

Once you take away the high numbers for minorities, a curious picture develops that means a fair majority of white women must be onboard with a lot of this, which makes no sense.

There is one hell of an ugly underlying cultural issue that no one wants to deal with that will keep all of us under great threat of being under the 8 ball for the next 2-3 decades if we don't get a better handle on whatever the malfunction is with huge swaths of the fading majority.

It seems to me that older strongly catholic hispanics might not be in favor of contraception because of their strong belief in their religion?

103. those kinds of women

will sell all women out if it would make them look more attractive to their men. Look at the women in the state legislatures who have already come out and said hideous things about the use of birth control (one even went so far as to advance the notion that married couples should abstain from sex if they don't want to have babies, instead of taking birth control and enjoying sex for sex's sake with their lawful spouse).

"they walk softly and carry lipstick" (a brilliant statement by DUer crunch60) ... they would never dream of thinking for themselves. They wait for their men and other men, frankly, to tell them what they should think.

So be it! Stay home where you belong and raise it. When all these men find out they NEED there wives to work more than they NEED their sex...they will change their tune. Unfortunately, it will take a long time of starvation or bankruptcy before they come to their senses. Men! You know, the ones who make the laws. The ones who will soon be out of office and a job.

126. birth control benefits men as much if not more so than women

for the very reasons you've pointed out.

Instead of housing, feeding, educating, providing medical care for 15 kids plus the wife and going without sex because he isn't shooting blanks, like the days before BC, the couple can space out and manage the number of children they produce.

Let's not forget: childbirth complications used to be the main cause of death in women. It's a better day now that women no longer have to jeopardize their lives in order to make religious leaders comfortable in their own skin.

Note to these knuckledraggers: women are NOT going to go back to that. Fuck what you heard.

58. The idiots. Gay marriage only works as a wedge issue

because only a very small percentage of the population is directly effected by it, so that a significant minority can be whipped into a frenzy over it, and most of the rest of the voting public won't really care about it one way or the other. On the other hand, contraception effects virtually everybody at some point or another. Anybody who's ever had heterosexual sex and tried to avoid a resultant pregnancy is going to be turned off the message.

The Republicans have just gotten so far into the crazy that they've lost all trace of rational thought, even where it concerns their own interests. And I'm completely happy to see that happen.

.... looking for a way to stop Obama's health care plan from going into effect.
Although, now w/ the blow back from their actions they are pretty much screwed
and not in a good way either. Rush, Fox News, Issa, and so on work in their own
little worlds so when they get out of their comfort zone sometimes they astounded
by what they see and found out. Right now Fox is trying to make up its own reality
that President Obama picked Ms. Fluke to testify in front of Issa's hearing to make
the republicans look bad.

The republican party is becoming the home to old white cranky men and that is about

29. Well that's pretty stupid of them. I'm opposed to mandatory private insur. but GOP can hardly object

to that -- Mitt Romney and Newt Gingrich practically invented the concept of individual mandates.

No, their only objection to the Health Care Reform was the add-ons designed to make the insurance industry accountable for stuff like preexisting conditions and contraception -- most of which got removed or rendered toothless before the bill was passed (there being no limit to how much insurance cos can charge for users with preexisting conditions, for instance, who are now forced to carry health insurance, meaning it will be literally cheaper for many of them to pay the fine).

31. Their (the current GOP) actions is why they have to restrict voting, gerrymander districts, control

the media in many ways, and rig voting machines because they are becoming
a smaller and smaller minority party all the time. Look who they have pissed
off:

Latinos
Gays
Women
students
working people
educated people
teachers
unions
environmentalists
African Americans

short list ......

Despite the many flaws w/ this first version of health care reform the republicans know that
once it goes into effect millions of people will get some benefits and the dems will get a
nice long term "bump up of support."

This is no longer the Party of Ike or Teddy Roosevelt or Margaret Chase Smith or even
Ronald Reagan these people are really un-American radicals who are betting that if
people are hurting enough that they will vote Obama out of office. Rep. John Boner
was choking on the job news today.

A long time ago my dad worked @ the RNC and I got to know or know about
some really decent people who were republicans ..... Dan Evans, Margaret Chase
Smith, Chuck Percy, Jacob Javits, Eve Dirkson, Ike, Lincoln, Wayne Morris, and so
many more ..... as a little kid the brother of our next door neighbor was Ray Shafer*
the Governor of PA ..... he was a socialist radical who worked for good schools and
colleges, transportation, and the environment long before it was the "right thing to
do" .... We were in a middle class neighborhood and he would join us for picnic
dinners and would play games w/ the neighborhood kids ..... the man was salt of the
earth good .... today he would find no home in the republican party.


sorry to

* the governor of PA used to play whiffle ball w/ us kids and tell his people that
he was "in an important meeting" and that he should not be disturbed. It truly was
a different time. the press would not say a word about it and the grown ups in the
neighborhood if asked wouldn't know anything.

Oh he was NEVER for the war. Nooo, not him, certainly not! He was against it from the beginning.

27. I honestly don't see how *anyone* can support the GOP anymore.

Time and time again, republicans have shown a complete and utter disdain towards women (sluts), Blacks (food stamp moochers), Hispanics (illegals taking our jobs), young people (don't let them vote during their "liberal phase"), old people (lets slash their Medicaid and Social Security), Muslims (they're terrorists), poor people (lazy welfare recipients), the list goes on.

You'd think alienating so many people would have led to a disintegration of the GOP years ago. I suppose people are finally waking up to the fact that a vote for the GOP is a vote against their interests. It just took way longer than it should have.

64. I dont see this as good

51% seems minimal. In the face of whats been happening, it seems rather low. When you consider that 2008 exit polling had President Obama at 56% of the female vote, it seems even less impressive.

Mathematically, 51% of females(females making up 53% of total voters) is 27 out of every hundred voters going for Democrats. If men stay at 49%(Obamas exit polling among male voters), thats another 23. For a total of 50 out of every hundred voters.

Given who controls the counting and the way that the electoral college works to favor small states, I believe we need more than 50 out of every hundred voters. So the gap better widen.

77. Thats true

It is different. And, even using that flawed comparison, the Rep number of 36% is a lot more encouraging than the 08 presidential exit polling of 43%.

Then, you also have to consider that 14% that didn't choose Rep or Dem which comes into play somewhere in all this as well.

Still. With the attacks that the Reps are laying down left and right on basic womens issues, the idea that approx 4 in 10 still support them is confounding. And that the party that at least hypothetically stands against them is only pulling 5 in 10 is also confounding.

When you take into account the way that minority women almost certainty skew toward Democrats, that means we are probably still only breaking even when it comes to Caucasian women. When When I consider that the opposition is the Republican Party, who would be content to literally consign women to legally be mindless brood mares. And to me, that is astounding. And not encouraging, when it comes to consideration of humanity, or the subset of humanity that calls itself American.

the repugs NEED the social issues-they NEED a group to focus their constituents' hatred and fear on-that's the only way they win. Because every one with half a brain REMEMBERS before the election when little boots basically went to congress and informed them that he done screwed up and ya'll better cover my arse, because the whole world is going down because my friends raided the treasury, sold worthless pieces of paper. Of course my friends are going to make out like bandits, literally bandits. So, the repugs have the SAME, exact same, economic solutions as little boots shoved on the country. MORE deregulation for those greedy, sociopathic global corporations (buyer beware), MORE tax breaks for the wealthy and undeserving (because it's those poor people who don't pull their weight) and MORE screw unions and labor (because that's what is holding back those wall street before main street corporations from doing business here-not enough slave labor). They cannot run on an economic agenda because it's the same damn thing since reagan (of course, I see now even reagan was sane enough to know when to raise taxes).

The problem with that is that 98% of all women have used contraceptives at some point in their lives. They apparently didn't understand that it is not just unmarried sluts, but married women, mothers, and grandmothers. When you alienate that large a demographic you can kiss your ass goodbye.

I don't think the question "why do so many women support this?" really has an answer, as much as the question "how many women are willing to sacrifice their own rights in the interest of protecting a societal hypocrisy they see as essential?"

There are enough to make us nervous, but not enough to support it, and too many to think they all understand it and think about it in detail.

Yes you are exactly right. It is an unfortunate reality about human life that sometimes war is necessary-and this is a war. Some things do not go away without conflict-a good example was the Hitler problem in WWII. The only thing that could have solved it was war. Well, this isn't going away without a war either-and when you have the advantage in combat you have to press it home to the end. We have to keep fighting for the decency, dignity and freedom of humanity or we will loose those things to a greedy few who believe they can purchase righteousness. The Founding Fathers left us a legacy. They left us a system based on the virtues that make for a great country. We now have to see to it that those virtues remain valued for ever.

national security. ugh... 1. Her advice assumes that Americans are idiots. 2. The voting public has a right to know about Santorum's no-birth-control/die-if-you-need-an-abortion-to-save-your-life beliefs.

130. This is not news!

Female voters are Democratic before Republican.

Male voters are Republican before Democratic.


ELECTION 2008
John McCain (R): 43% females; 48% males
Barack Obama (D): 56% females; 49% males

What I'm hoping for is that Obama gets at least 60 percent of females for 2012. Let the males shift Democratic as well, and let Obama win them over by at least 3 percentage points.

Imagine ...


ELECTION 2012
Mitt Romney (R): 39% females; 48% males
*Barack Obama (D): 60% females; 51% males



This would be an absolute landslide!
