The voting behavior of housewives

How do housewives vote?  According to the GSS, 63 percent voted for Obama (sample size = 131). Among married women (sample size = 73), 49 percent voted for him. One hundred percent of never-married stay-at-home women went for Obama (sample size = 19). Sixty percent of homemakers say they are political moderates. How large is the demographic? They are 16 percent of voting women.

The post is improperly titled. Unmarried women don't belong the house **wives** category.

I know a few widows who are stay at home moms.

These days there aren't many of these ladies.

So, I am guessing welfare mamas are at home never married moms.
