Kerry's Gender Gap-Patrick Ruffini put up the stats from this LA Times poll showing Liberian leading Kerry 25-20 amongst registered Democrats. Lieberman whoops Kerry 35-17 among women, but loses 12-24 among men. Here's my quick take on this. Lieberman is better on moral issues than Kerry. On areas like TV violence, his paternally moral streak comes across well, while it might grate against the male voter. Remember that there are more women than men in most churches, and the Democratic women with a moral streak might find Lieberman attractive. Kerry might also act like too many women's exes for their comfort (ditto Hart and Sharpton but not Gephardt). Lieberman's the only one with bigger female support; the male voters are much more up for grabs.
