Senate Candidate: Women Only Vote Democrat Because They Are Dependent on Government Benefits
I guess this doesn’t apply to their women
Jeff Bell, the Senate Republican candidate in New Jersey blamed single mothers for his poor polling among women, claiming that they are dependent on government benefits.
On Thursday, Bell told the Asbury Park Press that his lack of female support comes from the rise in single mothers in New Jersey who are “automatically Democratic because of the benefits.”
“They need benefits to survive, and so that kind of weds them to the Democratic Party,” he said.
Bell then suggested that popularity with male voters is a better sign, as men are “more willing to vote for change.”
“Even before the gender gap appeared, men were more willing to vote for change. They’re more bomb-throwers. Women are more cautious,” Bell said. “If you’re doing well among men, that is something that an insurgent candidate needs.”
