Did you know that the support from women for Obama is about 14-percentage points higher than that from men? Probably. Everybody is keenly aware of the gender gap. But did you know that the martial status gap is more than twice that gap? That’s right! Unmarried folks support Obama by a whopping 34-percentage points more than married folks. In fact, the marrieds prefer McCain. Yet, I am not hearing anything from the campaign that shows your support of this large and growing segment of the U.S. population. For more background and some ideas, please also see this post.
I look forward to hearing Barack Obama reaching out to the single and unmarried people!
I am afraid that the only result of this message will be that I’ll end up on their emailing list again. But maybe, just maybe, someone sees these numbers and realize that there is huge potential!
