Until now, Democrats have been confident that women living in the suburbs would propel the much-vaunted “blue wave” this fall because President Trump remains unpopular with this traditionally Republican constituency. Polling conducted over the summer indicated suburban women had a strong preference for Democratic candidates over their Republican opponents. Several vulnerable Republican-held congressional districts are located in suburban areas.But Democrats have overplayed their dirty hand, and women might exact their revenge in November. Republican women are outraged at Democrats and their media accomplices for what they’ve done to Brett Kavanaugh and his family. One poll taken right after Kavanaugh’s testimony showed 71 percent of Republican women believed Kavanaugh was telling the truth. In a Morning Consult poll released late Monday, 58 percent of Republican women described Dr. Christine Ford as “opportunistic.” Republican women are the only voters whose support for Kavanaugh’s nomination has increased post-hearing.
Two points: First I don't think those numbers are that bad for Dems. One would expect Kavanaugh to have 80-90 % of Republican women. And the second is that many of the suburban women spoken of don't consider themselves Republican anymore, but have become independents so wouldnt even register in that poll. Identification as Republican is declining in that demographic

Women with sons are all being pushed toward voting Republican since they can easily imagine the same thing happening to their own sons.
You have a sister in law who used the same tactics to falsely accuse some poor guy of rape though
Almost every decision they make over the next generation, will have little to no effect on your or I.WTF are you talking about? You don’t think Citizens United has had any effect on us? Do you even know what the Supreme Court is, or does?
What has it (CU) done to you, personally?
Decisions have consequences. If I had a daughter, I'd let her know that going to a party, you understand the boys are going to want to have sex with you or at least try to get to third base
Interesting they skipped saying much the support has increased. I'm betting it is negligible.
in the absence of any physical evidence.

Aphroman saysYou don’t think Citizens United has had any effect on usTaking massive advantage of it, and outspending her opponent 2:1 didn’t help Hillary beat Trump. Turns out that voters can’t be bought quite that blatantly after all.
