The Democrats' Last Line of Defense: College-Educated, Single White Women

The Kaci Hickox demographic.

Socially liberal white-collar and single white women look like the fragile last line of defense for Democrats hoping to avoid a Republican sweep in next week's election, according to detailed results from a broad array of new polls.

For the third consecutive election, congressional Democrats are facing the prospect of a decisive rejection by most white voters, including not only white men but also white women who are either married or lack a college degree. But in surveys of both individual Senate races and national preferences on the generic congressional ballot, Democrats are showing stubborn strength with college-educated and single white women.

That performance—combined with preponderant leads among minority voters in almost all surveys—represents the Democrats' best chance of overcoming gaping deficits with the remainder of the white electorate in the key contests.

So that, of course, explains NARAL idiotic ad.

Note, however, that college-educated women actually prefer Republicans on most important issues not related to Condom Scarcity:

Yet in a measure of the party's vulnerability, even that advantage rests on an unsteady foundation: National Pew Research Center and ABC/Washington Post polls conducted in October found that college-educated white women, though strongly preferring Democrats on issues relating to women's health, actually trust Republicans more on both managing the economy and safeguarding the nation's security.

Nevertheless, many such women will vote with their uterii.

In Colorado, Mark Uterus leads Cory Gardner by 27 points among college-educated white women.

As the article points out: College-educated white women are, for voting purposes, minorities.

Speaking of the Lena Dunham Demographic: Kevin Williamson has actually read her memoir.

It's scarifying.

If there is such a thing as actually abusing a child through excessive generosity and overindulgence, then Lena Dunham’s parents are child abusers. Her father, Carroll Dunham, is a painter noted for his primitive brand of highbrow pornography, his canvases anchored by puffy neon-pink labia; her photographer mother filled the family home with nude pictures of herself, "legs spread defiantly." Self-styled radicals from old money, they were not the sort of people inclined to enforce even the most lax of boundaries. And they were, in their daughter's telling, enablers of some very disturbing behavior that would be considered child abuse in many jurisdictions -- Lena Dunham's sexual abuse, specifically, of her younger sister, Grace, the sort of thing that gets children taken away from non-millionaire families without Andover pedigrees and Manhattanite social connections. Dunham writes of casually masturbating while in bed next to her younger sister, of bribing her with "three pieces of candy if I could kiss her on the lips for five seconds . . . anything a sexual predator might do to woo a small suburban girl I was trying." At one point, when her sister is a toddler, Lena Dunham pries open her vagina -- "my curiosity got the best of me," she offers, as though that were an explanation. "This was within the spectrum of things I did."

The whole article is horrifying.

And to end on a lighter note: Charles C.W. Cooke has found the transcript for the full NARAL anti-Cory-Gardener ad.

What you heard earlier today was just an excerpt.

The full ad is much more baroque.

Woman: I miss tampons.

Man: Me too, Sweetpea. Me too.

Woman: And television.

Man: Remember HBO?

Woman: Shut down by Cory Gardner for promoting pre-marital sex.

Man: And the Discovery Channel! Climate change that everyone knows is weirding our weather, Cory flat-out denied it. Now, look at how things are, Hot Legs.

Woman: He’s just not Science, is he?

Man: Exactly, Sugar Tits. This guy has no idea what's going on in the real world. Last year, he took my little brother’s shoes away. Poor Jimmy.

I'm pretty sure that's the first time National Review has published "Sugar Tits" outside the context of a Mel Gibson charging document.


Sorry: I thought it was clear that the Charles C.W. Cooke piece was parody.

However, I guess, given the Lena Dunham stuff (which is unbelievable, but from her own memoir), people weren't quite sure.

But the Charles C.W. Cooke bit is fake.
