52. I love white women as much as anyone

But a significant amount of southern republican women are supporting Terry McAuliffe who is male, specifically because of his policies on women's issues. Women won it for Barack twice as well.

Any type of Dem should win the votes of women. Younger women don't care as much about race as the older ones but you do have a valid point there on race...even though Obama and Douglas Wilder have won in the south.

And our country has the highest number of Republican women in office that we have ever had. Some of the most radical nutjobs in the tea party are women. Somebody is actually voting for them. It baffles my mind that crusty old conservatives of either gender are voting for women. My mom doesn't trust female politicians and she's liberal and grew up in a socialist country with a woman prime minister.

Much of our country also has more Latinos than we used to. Whoever can appeal to them should have a very good chance as well. They care about a hell of a lot more than immigration. Any politician who can understand that will get a lot of support. Even ass-backwards Idaho has a republican Latino congressman.
