Recent analysis by Liberal pollster Frank Graves claims that if only women voted, they would elect a minority Liberal government. How convenient of Frank to do this analysis that women would elect Ignatieff. The theory goes that Tories are only in government because of men, who actually support the NDP in greater number than the Liberals. The Dippers have a 5% lead among men over Iggy's Liberals. So is this an honest analysis? The data does show that men are more likely to be Conservative than women, so why is that? I know that I have many female visitors who are among my most valued commentors. Hands down the two top Blogging Tories, Blue Like You and Small Dead Animals are women.
So when I see data that women are more likely to be Liberal than men, I get confused because there are so many great female voices in the Conservative Blogosphere. I would be willing to wager that even if there are more female Liberals, that female Conservatives do indeed show up to vote in significant numbers.
