Survey shows unmarried women prefer Obama
Single women have long been a tough group for political hopefuls. They tend to turn out for Democrats, but that’s assuming they turn out at all. Their married counterparts are more apt to show up at the polls, even though single women have graver economic concerns.
The group surveyed 1,045 women in 14 battleground states, including Colorado, and found that single women prefer Barack Obama 62 percent to 33 percent. Married women, on the other hand, slightly prefer John McCain at 48 percent to 47 percent. The study also found that, contrary to popular opinion, single women are “just as engaged and interested as married women,” according to the press release.
Women’s Voices. Women Vote is also the organization that commissioned last week’s female voter focus group during the vice presidential debate. The Colorado Independent liveblogged the event; the single women in the group appeared to go for Joe Biden after watching the debate, though many admitted to identifying with Sarah Palin because she’s a woman.
