Interesting article about the gender split in voting this year on five thirty-eight

http://fivethirtyeight.com/features/election-update-women-ar...




Quote:
one demographic split caught my eye. That was from a Public Religion Research Institute poll conducted on behalf of The Atlantic. It showed a massive gender split, with Clinton trailing Trump by 11 percentage points among men but leading him by 33 points among women.


This also looks like it is before effects of the hot mic fiasco hit the polls also.

Yes, Trump is very logical and not emotional at all.

He has the bestest temperament ever.

I'm beginning to think that letting both sexes have the vote is a colossal mistake.

Let's revoke men's suffrage.

I think I saw a (probably apocryphal) meme quote going around about that from a judge, maybe? Something about - 'obviously this isn't a permanent change, just temporary to balance out the years that men were in control of western governments and women had no voice - so just for a couple millennia is all'

This is the terrifying thing;

To my understanding, straight, white, males are the ONLY demo Trump is winning.

More than anything else that speaks to that groups power (that it's this close).

Video included of female trump supporter "ready for a revolution if clinton wins". She's not joking. Pence says she shouldn't say that.

Bloody Femocracy, see this is what comes of women going to college and playing computer games (and daring to air opinions on them).

Only in an alternate universe OR among the right wingnuts of the GOP could a vote for Trump be considered "logical". Likely not the word by which his candidacy will be remembered by history !

I'm not really up on all that Alpha/Beta shit, but aren't Betas subservient to Alphas? Trump is the King Kong Alpha and all those men supporting him are the little Betas.

My wife had an interesting take on voting and selfies. She's against it because neanderthal Trump husbands might coerce their wives into taking a pic of the ballad to prove they didn't vole for 'Isla She-Wolf of the Geriatric SS'.

It's also illegal to do in most states. So...there's that.

That's hilarious. I heard that he also won every poll about who won the second debate as well. It really is a metaphor for their whole campaign.

Apparently Trump is falling in the polls in Utah also.

Quote:
The Y2 Analytics poll, published first by Mormon church-owned Deseret News, found both Clinton and Trump at 26% among likely Utah voters, with independent Evan McMullin at 22% and Libertarian Gary Johnson at 14%.

Her point was that it should be illegal period to avoid election tampering.

Rrrrright...and it is in most states. For that exact reason, yes. So we're all on the same page here, no?

(I mean, did you see the list? There are, like, five states that don't specifically have laws on the books prohibiting it.)
