Spin and the Single Woman

In the aftermath of the election, I’ve been paying special attention to the spin on the role women played in the outcome. 

The focus is definitely on single women, who voted in unprecedented numbers and broke hard for Obama. As with many aspects of the race, it seems everyone knew it was going to happen but Republicans; Google ‘Republican single women’ and you’ll find several good articles, written months ago, predicting exactly that. (You’ll also find what I can only imagine are some interesting dating sites.)

Here are a few articles I found especially interesting. If you have others, post them in the comments! (In the meantime, I’m working on the mothership… Stay tuned!)
