Obama has already lost college-educated women, and a big number of Tea Party leadership are women as well. Worry about debt and the implications for the next generation drew women into political activism, some for the first time ever this past year.
Tabitha Hale: Democrats and Suffragettes
HT The Chamber Post
Democrats can't take women for granted this year.
Frankly, a lot of women are breadwinners and the economy and jobs are their number one priority just like everyone else in America.
Other groups that supported Obama but show less fervor include young whites, unmarried women, people who live in the West, people earning under $50,000 a year, college graduates and urban whites. The falloff shows that Democrats have work to do with blocs the party hoped an Obama presidency would cement into dependable supporters.
