Not surprising. The majority look like they haven't touched a woman in years.

They are out of touch with every demographic except old white and angry.

I wish I had disposable income so I could put the above image on billboards around my city.

"When you look at our position on issues, a lot of times majority of Americans agree with our positions," Rep. Cathy McMorris Rodgers of Washington, the highest-ranking female Republican in the U.S. House, told CNN. "But it's the way that we talk about it that doesn't resonate and we have to do a better job. I think it's fair to say there have been some comments which are offensive and they're not representative of the entire Republican Party."

"There's more work to be done. Republicans are good at speaking from our head about facts and figures. We also need to speak from our heart and make sure people know that we care," said McMorris Rodgers, who delivered the GOP response to President Obama's State of the Union address last week.

Nope, the problem is the opposite. You have done too well of a job of "speaking from the heart" concerning your positions, "pulling facts and figures" out of your buttocks, and letting America know who you really care about. Most of America does not agree with a majority of your positions, that is why the GOP is having a harder and harder time winning non-gerrymandered elections.

Those are just things people caught up in the right wing bubble tell themselves to feel better. They are not reality.

Or maybe the problem with older women is not the tone, but the fact that older women remember the fight it took to get us here and don't want to go backwards.

Umm, Subby, of he's GOP he'd ask why he would want to touch a woman. Then he'd correct himself because as a member of God's chosen party and people, he most certainly is not gay.

"Fifty-five percent of all respondents say the GOP doesn't understand women..."

A guy is walking down the beach when he finds a bottle with a genie in it. The genies says "For releasing me I will grant you one wish." The guy thinks this over and says "You know, I've always wanted to visit Europe but I'm afraid of flying. Could you build me a bridge across the Atlantic Ocean so I can drive to Europe?" The genie says "That's ridiculous. Do you realize what kind of engineering feat you're talking about? Plus imagine the effect on currents, fish migration and the environment. Come on, ask for something reasonable." The guy thinks some more and finally says "All my life I've tried to understand women but they remain a complete mystery to me. I'd like to understand women, understand their wants, understand their needs, understand what makes them happy and what makes them sad, always know the right thing to say, always know how to keep them happy. Can you do that for me?" The genie says "...So that bridge, two lanes or four?"

Like any woman would let them.

Well, they've done a good job of turning my generation of females away.   Hell, at this point in my life I probably will never vote for a Republican again.   Not that I WANT to vote straight D, but I'm scared of the Republicans and their distaste for females.   I mean, it's obvious they hate us.

I live in a very strange part of the world.  Cathy McMorris Rodgers is my federal rep.  Her voting record on women's issues is disturbing.  My state rep is a republican as well.  Not only is his voting record almost 180 degrees out from CMRs, he's authored and passed legislation on things like human trafficking that the national republican party would never touch.

Here is a fun link:

Democrats are more popular in every way, except there is a mass belief that Republicans are better for the economy. I don't understand it myself. Must be one of those things drilled into schoolchildren in the 50s.

It is not the way that they talk about hating women, but that they talk about hating women.

Fifty-five percent of all respondents say the GOP doesn't understand women, while 59 percent of women surveyed and 64 percent of women respondents over age 50 believe the same, results show.

Unfortunately, that 36-41% balance -- the women who *do* think that the GOP is in touch with women -- vote *every* time, while everyone else is wishy-washy about showing up to vote.

Slut-shaming is what Baptists do.

They probably wouldn't hate you as much if you voted for more D, especially when they're not in session and are looking for love.

The RNC chair is named Reince Priebus

If you take out the vowels, that spells "RNC PR BS"

That last number is intriguing

Indeed. So the older a woman is the more likely she is to realize that the GOP are out of touch with women's issues but the more likely she is to vote GOP anyways.

Why is that? Conservatism as a function of age versus a longer reference point?
