THE DEMOCRATS’ GENDER GAP:

Republican National Committee Chairman Reince Priebus on Tuesday disputed the widely held perception that the GOP struggles to attract the support of female voters, suggesting instead his party has a problem with only a certain kind of female voter.

“There’s a little bit of a laziness on the part of the people who want to claim the Republican Party has some kind of women problem,” said Priebus, speaking at the Christian Science Monitor Breakfast. “We basically have a single women problem under 35 issue.”

The real question, the chairman said, was why Democrats struggled to appeal to so many other groups of women.

“Why does the Democratic Party have so many problems in their engagement with married women, or women with children?” he asked.

Even the Dems, meanwhile, are worried that they’re doing badly with white people.
