2014 – ‘Unmarried Women Overwhelmingly Favor Democrats in Senate Battleground Races, New Poll Finds’
‘Republican candidates have a slight edge over Democrats in the 12 battleground states, with all likely 2014 voters. But when unmarried women are polled, the odds flip. Unmarried women favor Democrats in the battlegrounds by 58 to 36, up from 50 to 39 in July’.
‘All likely voters care deeply about creating jobs and improving wages, the poll shows. But unmarried women and members of the Rising American Electorate (unmarried women, people of color and voters ages 18-29) also respond strongly to policies that help women and men and the working middle class’.
‘The big story, the poll finds, is that the Democratic campaigns have succeeded in making the candidates’ positions on women’s issues become the second biggest reason voters are planning to vote for Democrats – after the economy’.
‘At the same time, minority voters’ support for the Affordable Care Act has risen dramatically – and for them, the health care law has become the single biggest factor in their vote after jobs’.
