Hal Ginsberg: The Case of Steven Salaita
Doc Cleveland: Who Lost Scotland?
Ayup, looks like 59% of Obama's vote was female voters in a highly gender defined election. Women made up about 54% of the voters and favored Obama 55-45, so roughly Obama's base is 59% women, 41% men.
So will women get some of the love back, or will they have to fight tooth and nail (oops) for basics like use of contraception, proper health care, abortion rights, and some of the less "soft" non-reproductive-related issues that women might prefer?
In short, will the Obama Administration recognize women as the majority of his base, and reward them the way elections are supposed to do? Inquiring minds want to know, operators standing by....
