First it was magic uteruses having an impact on election 2012. Now, according to a new study, it looks like candidates and pollsters who want to know more about the all-important woman’s vote should have a chat with our ovaries.
Any research that puts my hormones ahead of my brain demands serious skepticism. But the blogosphere is completely abuzz with reports that one Texas university has conducted a study that claims to be able to predict a woman’s vote based on where she is in her monthly menstrual cycle combined with whether she’s married or if she’s a single lady.
No word on infertile or menopausal voters. So what’s up with all that? I’ve got a couple of things to say in my Spin Cycle column at Babble Voices!
And if you have any thoughts on how this impacts women candidates who are running for election, please share!
