When last Thursday night Joe Biden told America, “Donald Trump and the MAGA Republicans” threaten “the very foundations of our republic,” he missed the mark. The real threat comes from the unlikeliest of suspects: educated liberal females, or “ELFs” for short.
These are the women who will proudly vote Democrat regardless of soaring inflation, rising gas prices, rampant crime in the streets, the unchecked flood of illegal aliens, and oppressive COVID policies that have irreparably damaged all children, the poor most notably.
If NBC’s polling from April is to be believed, this is the only demographic cohort more favorably inclined to Democrats in 2022 than in 2018. Unable to sell these women on his accomplishments — there are none — Biden last week appealed to their paranoia. What made this pitch strategic is his target audience’s proven susceptibility to fear-based propaganda.
At the core of the ELFs’ vulnerability is their ignorance, if not at the top, certainly among the masses. This should not surprise. Everywhere and always, men have performed better on political knowledge tests than women (just as conservatives routinely outperform liberals and independents). Researchers exploring this particular gender gap long ago gave up on questioning whether this was true and have focused instead on why.
Avoiding the obvious answer — namely, that men and women, being different, have different interests — researchers have spent millions of your tax dollars on the improbable and irrelevant. Among the more popular hypotheses is that women are more risk-averse than men and thus, on tests, are less likely to “guess under conditions of uncertainty.” For some reason, it is more acceptable to stereotype women as “risk-averse” than as “politics-adverse.” In fact, women, writ large, are likely both.
One ELF running for state Rep of Illinois New 54th district Mary Beth Canty is a perfect example..
Please vote Michele Hunter for the 54th!
Many women tend to follow thw lead of…OTHER WOMEN.
Those that do have the herd instinct in wanting to “belong.”
“Consensus” is their game, not individual thought and action.
As inferred in the article, maybe the 19th Amendment wasn’t such a good idea after all. (I’ll bet I will catch Hell for this one!)
