I would vote for a good conservative man or woman of any race and most religions, with the exception of Islam. A lot of people are suggesting Nikki Haley should be the GOP's next nominee, but isn't she a war monger? If she's an old time perpetual war neo-con I can't vote for her. I wonder if I will have republicans calling me anti-woman for that?

While you may pride yourself on being not gender biased, it doesn't mean that society doesn't still have some kind of bias.

So until it is the 'norm' not the exception there will be talk.

How many women in the Republican Senate?
How many women in the Republican Congress?

What percentage of American voters are women?

Gender matters.
Please explain to me why gender matters?

Only a sexist believes gender matters.

Gender matters in the discussion.

Until we can list a BUNCH of candidates who could easily run for President under the Republican ticket -- it is an issue.

Women are very noticeably under represented in govt. by Republicans.

That's why gender matters....because it is clear Republican voters struggle with female politicians.

I'm not advocating voting for a woman because she's a woman. I'm saying that until women are more proportionately represented in office, we have an issue with people accepting women in office.

I would never vote for a woman just because she's a woman.

But then I wouldn't vote for a candidate just because they belong to a party.

Has ANY republican stood up against trump the last year?

I suspect the Republican party would have to find another outsider, as Democrats most likely wont vote for anybody that licked trumps boots this obviously.

Means they have no spine, honor, faith or balls.

There are fewer women who vote Republican. You don't think that has anything to do with it?

And if they're stay-at-home moms, a group my fellow Dems LOVE to criticize, then they aren't going to be all that interested in taking a job that would require them to be gone much of the time.

Wow, there sure seems to be a lot of conservative Republican that are very open minded and quasi-feminist.


Race, gender nor religion SHOULD matter, but historically it sure seems to have. In the past 243 years only one non-Caucasian and one non-Male candidate has ever made it to the general presidential election, and both were in the Democratic party.


So it seems it does matter somewhat, at least in the real world that most of us live in.


In the 116th Congress 12.7% of all Republicans are women 37.9% of Democrats are women.


88% of all Congress are Christian.
78% are Caucasian.


So it seems to matter in some way! Unless you assume most minority female candidates are not qualified!

I'd vote for anyone as long as they weren't a Democrat.

Sorry, I’m not letting you off that easy.
Michele Bachman, when asked, said that the word submission to her husband meant “respect.” They’ve been happily married 30 years. Bachmann as a woman didn’t make it into Congress because she did the bidding of or was cowed by men.

You said:
“The Republican women I've seen in the political spotlight have been too cowed by their men for that to be allowed to happen. You know, biblical submission and all that jazz.”

I can’t think of ONE republican woman in the political spotlight who is “cowed by their men.”
Do you have the same outrage and distain for Muslim women who support Sharia law or Muslim women who wear birkinis or head wraps?? Oh, they mostly vote democrat.....

You have sadly joined the ranks of Dem elitists who enjoy character assassination of those they disagree with and think they are superior to the lesser “deplorables” with differing opinions who you all can apparently smell in Walmart.
Shame on you for belittling and smearing millions of women just because they differ in their political or cultural opinions and ideas.....

I don't know if I could vote for a Republican if politically they were against choice, against legalizing marijuana, and against abolishing the death penalty.

I'm pro choice, and have zero issues with marijuana...I voted GOP, and will continue to do so. You can do it !!
Why would anyone be against the death penalty ?!
