Does Presidential Poll Marriage Gap Show Selfish America?

Having the responsibilities of a family, and having to think about others, may make you more likely to be a Republican, if polling data from the latest Quinnipiac University presidential preference poll released today is any indication.

The major poll finding is not that President Obama leads Mitt Romney 46-43, but that there is a historic, prolific "marriage gap" among single Americans who support Obama 54%-34%.  Compare that with married voters who support Romney 51%-38%. Among women, the gap is even wider, nearly two to one with single women backing Obama 60%-31%.  Yet married women back Romney 49%-42%, representing a huge 18-point swing!  (And before you ask, the male gap is 14 points, as single men choose Obama 47%-38%, while married men back Romney 54%-35%.)

"Although much has been made about the gender gap and how President Barack Obama's lead among women fuels his campaign, the marriage gap is actually larger and more telling," said assistant director of the Quinnipiac University Polling Institute Peter A. Brown in a statement. "Married people are more likely to be older, more financially secure and more socially conservative than unmarried voters. The married column includes more Republicans and more white voters. Married voters are more likely to focus on the economy and health care, while single voters are more focused on issues such as gay rights and reproductive issues."

This "marriage gap" raises the question of whether we are in fact seeing a strong divergence in political preference based, in essence, on a person's level of responsibilities and maturity.

Make no mistake about it, I do not suggest that single people are irresponsible or not family-oriented. There are many single people who are very responsible, very self-sufficient, and would make great spouses and parents.  However, the poll results indicate a prevalence in political attitudes that may show that the unmarried are more likely to be carefree, irresponsible, unwilling (but not necessarily unable) to care for themselves (never mind, for others) and unable to maintain relationships (whether business or personal) with others because of narcissistic, immature or selfish attitudes.  

And I must note, on behalf of many friends of mine who remain single, or are divorced: Their difficulties in finding successful partners may be rooted in precisely the prevalence of toxic or dysfunctional personalities.  The trends pinpointed in this poll indicate a dangerous shift in our society.

Will America on the cusp of becoming a European welfare state, because of these Toxic Undesirables? Will our great nation face generational ruin because of a sizable and possibly unstoppable critical mass of narcissistic, pathological, toxic people may determine whether the federal government keeps soaking productive, responsible Americans so that others may live lives of carefree bliss free from most or all adult responsibilities?
