Latest Survey on the GOP and Women is Pretty Devastating

I would love to sift through the details more but clearly the GOP is not being heard by large groups of women, predominately single women

It also found that Republicans “fail to speak to women in the different circumstances in which they live” — as breadwinners, for example. “This lack of understanding and acknowledgment closes many minds to Republican policy solutions,” the report says. The groups urge Republicans to embrace policies that “are not easily framed as driven by a desire to aid employers or ‘the rich.’”

Going against the grain with this take on Ban Bossy now looks by this data to be pretty logical. While the next election may not have the same turnout model Obama drew, Democrats will be able to capitalize on these gaps unless real work is done to recapture the single female voter.

The problem is, the answer can’t be just better messaging. That hasn’t worked else you wouldn’t see results like this.

Female voters who care about the top four issues — the economy, health care, education and jobs — vote overwhelmingly for Democrats. Most striking, Democrats hold a 35-point advantage with female voters who care about jobs and a 26 percent advantage when asked which party is willing to compromise. House Republicans say jobs and the economy are their top priorities.

That’s just stunning.
