Comment 2 by ColdThinker :

About 50 % of American voters must be women. And it can't be that all American men vote republican candidates. By this simple logic democrats should win every election hands down. So, how do these medieval patriarchs get themselves elected? Do so many American women oppose women's rights?

The three most probable answers I can come up with are:

  1. Female voters do not constitute around 50% of US voters.
  2. (Especially young) female voters are apathic, uninformed, or pressured by family or their community.
  3. Female voters feel that their religious afifliation or republican ideals outweigh their 'personal' interests.
