Mitt and Women

In the latest presidential polling, Mitt Romney is winning among married women by 9 points over President Obama writes The Daily Beast. This is a more traditional voting pattern for married women. Among unmarried women — who make up 22.2 percent of the electorate — says Democratic pollster Celinda Lake, Obama leads by a 28-point margin.

Frank Newport of Gallup says other demographics drive the decision-making of single women.

“African-Americans are less likely to be married than whites, and 9 out of 10 support the president,” Newport said. “Also young people, particularly under the age of 30, are more likely to support Obama and less likely to be married. Nonmarried people are much less likely to be religious, and people who are more religious are less likely to support Obama. A lot of these things go together.”

Bottom line, at all age levels and in all demographics, a woman’s marital status is the determining factor in how she votes.

One often hears that single women tend not to be engaged with politics, but Lake says that her polling show a major upswing of 20 points among single women being engaged with the election, and “they attribute the Republican Party’s positions to Romney”.

DRF: PA Voter ID Lawsuit

On Tuesday Viviette Applewhite of Philadelphia became the plaintiff in challenging Pennsylvania’s new law requiring voters to produce a driver’s license or other photo ID before they are allowed vote, writes the Philadelphia Inquirer.

Applewhite says she has voted since 1960, when she cast her first presidential ballot for John F. Kennedy. But she doesn’t have a driver’s license. And since she has been unable to obtain a birth certificate from the state, Applewhite says, she will not meet the law’s requirements and therefore will be barred from voting in the Nov. 6 presidential election.

Speaking from her wheelchair, Applewhite is one of 10 plaintiffs, including three elderly women who say they’ve tried to get documents but can’t obtain them in the Jim Crow South. Represented by PA ACLU, the plaintiffs say they can’t obtain a birth certificate because the states have no records of their births.

In the video Viviette Applewhite explains that she is a single mother who has raised five children, each of them college-educated and long-time voters.

Evolutionary Multi-Cellularity Gap Explained | Brazil President Dilma Rousseff 72% Approval | Anne Sinclair @ Huff Po France

Daily French Roast

Anne is reading …

Anne Sinclair and husband Dominique Strauss-Kahn‘Le Huffington Post’ French edition, launching in partnership with the newspaper Le Monde, will be led by Anne Sinclair, the well-known TV journalist in France and wife of Dominique Strauss-Kahn. Under her new title of ‘editorial director’, Sinclair told Elle France, via the New York Times:

‘‘I am very happy to resume my career, amid the euphoria of taking part in something new. I think I still have something to bring to the profession.’’ 

Sinclair is a wealthy heiress, formerly the host of a popular television interview program during the 1980s and ’90s. She gave up her position in 1997 when Mr Strauss-Kahn became finance minister of France.

‘‘I am neither a saint nor a victim,’’ Sinclair told Elle, when asked about her continuing support for her husband, who is under fire still for his sexual laisons . ‘‘I am a free woman.’’

‘‘Unconditional support does not exist,’’ she added. ‘‘One supports if one has decided to support. Nobody knows what happens in a private relationship, and I deny anyone the right to judge mine. I am comfortable with my decisions, my actions, I made them independently.’’

Year One Dilma Rousseff

With an approval rating of 72 percent, Brazil’s President Dilma Rousseff proved that “a technocrat who never worked as an elected official coule step out of her predecessor’s shaw and achieve success on her own terms.”

Dilma Rousseff has strengthened ties with the United States and was the first woman to address the opening session of the United Nations. Read on at Americas Society - Council of the Americas

Huge Evolutionary Understanding

Yeast. (Credit: © Dmitry Knorre / Fotolia)In what could be a truly memorable cup of coffee, postdoctoral researcher Will Ratcliff and associate professor Michael Travisano, both from the Department of Ecology, Evolution and Behavior at the University of Minnesota, chatted that bridging the famous multi-cellularity gap would be “just about the coolest thing we could do.”

Evolutionary biologists have long wondered how more than 500 million years ago, single-celled organisms on Earth’s surface begann forming multicellular clusters that ultimately became plants and animals.

Deciding to pursue the question, the two scientists found the answer in their first experiment, writes Science Daily.

“To understand why the world is full of plants and animals, including humans, we need to know how one-celled organisms made the switch to living as a group, as multicelled organisms,” said Sam Scheiner, program director in the National Science Foundation (NSF)’s Division of Environmental Biology. “This study is the first to experimentally observe that transition, providing a look at an event that took place hundreds of millions of years ago.”

Ga State Rep Kip wants all Georgia welfare recipients to take a drug test. Alas, Kip was arrested last week, driving his fast-moving Jaguar through a red light. Denying that he had been drinking at breakfast time, Kip failed the ‘intoximeter’ test, the ‘walk and turn test’ and standing on one leg.

Rick Santorum’s Iowa coalitions director Jamie Johnson, sent out a June email saying an American female president would harm children. The Des Moines Register outlined ‘Nine reasons Michele Bachmann’s campaign fizzled. #5 reason: Sexism among some conservatives.

The question then comes, ‘Is it God’s highest desire, that is, his biblically expressed will, … to have a woman rule the institutions of the family, the church, and the state?’ ” Johnson’s email said.

Virginia State Delegate Bob Marshall (R) threw his hat into Virginia’s senate race yesterday, educating Anne on his views that God punished women who have had abortions by giving them disabled children. Still reeling from yesterday’s revelation of Karen Santorum’s 5-6 year live-in relationship with an abortion doctor, Anne asks if Marshall really means to suggest that …
