During the November 8th homestretch, Republicans and Democrats both turned to Twitter to win over female voters.
The phrase “Dear Women” was popular on Twitter on Friday as many democratic activists took to social media to convince women that voting in blue was “caring for yourself.”
“Dear women, Republicans hate you,” wrote the author Majid Padellan. “This is NOT a joke. Vote Blue.”
Kimberley Johnsona colleague, author and women’s rights activist, wrote on Twitter: “Dear women, taking care of yourself is voting blue.”
Republicans joined the trend, including a conservative author Nick Adamswho told women to “vote for RED this Tuesday unless you want men to dominate any women’s sport.”
Donald Trump Jr. also replied displaying the segment shown in View Co-host Sunny Hosting on Thursday compared suburban white women voting against access to ab*rtion to ‘Raid voting cockroaches’ Fox News.
“Remember, idiots go on View they called you “cockroaches to vote for the raid” because you would have the nerve to vote for Republicans to restore security in our cities, law and order, our economy, end school closings, not be 3 years old to decide your gender, etc. ” , wrote Trump.
Women’s issues have consistently been polled as the highest priority for voters in 2022 and saw a sharp surge in interest following the Supreme Court ruling to end federal ab*rtion protection in June.
The Pew Research Center said ab*rtion as a priority for voters increased by almost 13 points between polls in March and August this year, and the end-October data showed that 56 percent voters still indicated that this was the most important issue in this year’s elections.
While Democrats have the upper hand over voters worried about ab*rtion rights this fall, Republicans have tried to portray themselves as a women’s rights party on issues such as gender identity and school politics. Republican Michigan governor candidate Tudor Dixon, for example, made the message that he would “protect women’s sports” while opposing school policies such as gender neutral bathrooms. Nov 2.
On Thursday, the author Courtney Kirchoff he tweeted to “Spare me the pleas of ‘Dear Women’ if you can’t even define who a woman is.”
In later postKirchoff wrote that she voted Republican “to the very end” when she voted early Friday.
Other users like Karen JamesA biologist at the University of Maine wrote that the “Dear Women” trend made me “feel like I am being taught”, no matter which political party is speaking.
“Tweets like this always make me feel like I am being instructed and everything else, and that only women are responsible for voting on these monsters,” James wrote in a previous tweet in October that she posted on her channel in response to Friday trend.
“It seems manipulative. It would be nice if at least once such a tweet was directed at men, even at everyone, ”added James.
