Affordable Family Formation :: VDARE

It's the marriage gap, not the gender gap

As I first reported in VDARE.COM last December, the single best correlation with Bush’s share of the vote by state that anybody has yet found is: the average years married by white women between age 18 and 44: an astonishing r-squared = 83 percent.
Bush carried the top 25 states ranked on "years married."
According to Greenberg, the exit poll showed Bush carried merely 44% of the single white females but 61% of the married white women—a 17 point difference. Among white men, Bush won 53% of the singles and 66% of the married—a 13 point difference.
