Crunching the data, I get the following:
|Status||Obama||McCain||Net Difference||Marriage Gap|
So, the marriage gap is anywhere from 30 percentage points – for men – to 36 percentage point – for young women. Is Obama taking note? It doesn’t seem so. The gender gap, which is only about 14%, pales in comparison to this gap. But if the Obama campaign would like to change this, they can start reading up on how to reach unmarried women at Women’s Voters or on Bella DePaulo’s blog (she has a new post here that wonders why the press & the blogs seem to be ignoring this huge gap.).
