It turns out the GOP won married women but with the reduction in the marriage rate so that 42% of women never marry the GOP has to cope with this change in that with only 46% of adults are now married the idea of winning based on the married vote is very 19th and early 20th century. (the rate was 78% in 1950) It turns out based upon the ratio if Romney had the 1950 electorate he would likely have won the womens vote and thus the election (disregarding ethnic changes).
