    than men so they vote for the party that is is more liberal. We see this with Hillary and Bill Clinton, Hillary is the more liberal of the couple.

      It's occurred to me - and this is just an unsubstantiate impression - that women are specifically more liberal than men on the key issues the Republicans love:

      We've found out who hates immigrants more, who hates brown people more, who hates the IRS, who hates gay people, who hates the poor more, who loves torture more, and who wants to stay at war for longer - for no reason.

      Now, I don't have any polls to back me up here, but I'd bet that women are much more accepting of gays, more compassionate towards immigrants and the poor, and less enamored of getting our war on.

      Angry White Men may be an influential block of the GOP vote, but I haven't met many women who respond well to angry men (white or otherwise).
