The article featured a quote about how women tend to be more moderate and fluid in their voting, softly supporting a candidate. Although this seems like a bit of a generalization I definitely feel as though I fit into this category. I consider myself a moderate and have switched between the candidates I support in the upcoming election a couple of times. Although I am fairly certain about my vote now, my support remains supple and able to change. I believe this is actually a strength of some female voters because it allows people to move across party lines for a personal decision as opposed to supporting one party no matter the candidate. Watching the debates I felt personal connections to Romney and Obama when they discussed their relationships with women in the family and their wives. I believe that they are just as able to make unrealized sexist comments about women as the media is, and when they speak honestly and personally it shows character. I am looking forwards to future female candidates with the hopes that the way the media talks about women in the election and women voting changes to become more balance.
