    Election news from across the Knight Ridder network and the Web

    Friday, September 24, 2004

    Why do some women support Bush? 

    Do women on the East Coast give more support to John Kerry because they're smarter than other women. Do women in the Midwest give more support to George Bush because they're not as smart? At least one Kerry fan thinks so.

    I wrote an article this week about how women are not supporting Kerry at the same level as they supported Al Gore in 2000. Citing a series of polls done for Knight Ridder and MSNBC, I noted that Kerry's support from women was lagging in Missouri and Ohio, two battleground states. Consequently, Kerry was trailing Bush in those states.

    One woman who read the article in Philadelphia did not think it was news.

    "I don't understand how it's anything new in the states you are citing," she said in a voice message left at my office. "Everyone knows Missouri, Ohio, that's going to be the polls there.

    "Those of us who are more educated on the East Coast, women, are going to vote for Kerry. We always have. We always will."

    Conservative columnist Ann Coulter had a different take. The trend made her "proud" of her gender, she said.
