The Widdershins

Archive for October 20th, 2014

Good Monday, Widdershins. It’s getting close to Election Day for Senators, Representatives and Governors all over these United States. Now, I know it’s not National “I Told You So” Day yet, but it might as well be.

Female voters powered President Barack Obama’s victory over Mitt Romney in 2012, as Democrats leaned heavily on social issues to rally single women and suburban moms to the polls.

But with two weeks until Election Day, the president’s diminished standing with women is quickly becoming one of the biggest liabilities facing Democrats as they struggle to hang onto the Senate majority.

In battleground states across the country, Obama is underwater with female voters — especially women unaffiliated with a political party — and it’s making it harder for Democrats to take advantage of the gender gap, according to public polling and Democratic strategists.

The “gender gap” is what the media calls the tendency for women to vote Democratic, which, if female voter turnout is high, overcomes the tendency of men to vote Republican. By “social issues,” the article is referring to this:

Democrats in this trio of states [Iowa, New Hampshire and Colorado] have focused heavily on abortion rights, contraception access and other female-targeted wedge issues.

It’s not clear whether those efforts are translating. Rob Collins, the executive director of the Senate GOP campaign operation, said Thursday he believes the messaging efforts around female reproductive rights have turned off swing women voters in these states. “This isn’t the only thing that women care about,” he said. “This is why they have not been able to maximize their gains despite massive investments on this issue.”

Somehow, women don’t seem to be that enthusiastic about coming out to vote for “abortion rights.” Gee, I wonder why? Maybe these Democratic strategists should have asked women in their states what the top issues for them are right now instead of assuming it’s All About Abortion?
