Poll: 78 Percent of Young Women Approve of Weiner
U.S. News ^ | July 29, 2013 | EMILY STANTON

Posted on 07/29/2013 2:15:40 PM PDT by nickcarraway

Anthony Weiner loves the ladies, and apparently they love him back.

Sugar daddy dating website SeekingArrangement.com found that 78 percent of female clients aged 18-26 approve of Weiner.

The website, which connects wealthy patrons with attractive clients, surveyed over 18,000 of its female members and discovered that 63 percent of all women surveyed approved of the New York City mayoral hopeful, with the highest approval ratings coming from the 18-26 demographic.

Weiner resigned his congressional seat in 2011 after a sexting scandal – dubbed "Weinergate" – revealed he was sending explicit messages to women while he was married.

A second scandal erupted during Weiner's 2013 run for New York City mayor. Under the alias "Carlos Danger," Weiner continued to send sexts to at least three other women. Despite calls for him to drop out, Weiner continues his campaign.

A breakdown of SeekingArrangement.com's stats reveals a 35 percent approval rate (1,833 approve out of 5,287 surveyed) for women 27-34 and 21 percent approval (327 approve out of 1,094 surveyed) from women 35 and older.

"Weiner has a way with women, as shown by our sugar babies' approval rating," said Brandon Wade, Founder and CEO of SeekingArrangement.com. "Regardless of popular belief, not all women are turned off by Weiner. With a 78 percent approval rating, the mayoral candidate clearly has a hold of the younger female vote."

So, why do younger women love Weiner? Power.

Women rated power his most attractive quality. Second place was his occupation followed by intelligence, money and looks.

The survey was conducted July 22. Results were released Monday.

Power? Does a defrocked Congressman have any power? He only has power over Huma.

This is only coming up now because Weiner is rising in the polls.

Weiner is up for one of the stiffest and hardest campaigns in recent memory, but Weiner is pumped and ready to go. Weiner's momentum is growing and he will soon be ahead. Weiner has a firm grasp on politics and will be hard to beat. Weiner will not pull out. New Yorkers must be swelling with pride.

Weiner is clearly a good fit for Manhattan.

If Rush Limbaugh were still allowed to comment on the mindset of young American women in the Fluke era, he might provide a very accurate explanation for this phenomenon.

Actually, the numbers are much higher. Almost 99% of women approve of Weiner.

Only 1.1 percent are lesbians.

This schmuck has no power, was never a power broker in the House, has no intelligence, no job, no real money and looks like a wussie.

The only time in his life when he was smart, was when he was able to skip first grade. That’s the class when young boys learn that you gotta keep your pee-pee in your pants!

The dating site Seeking Arrangement seems to be a place for slutty women to meet slutty men. I hope these do not represent the majority of “young women.”

78% of attractive women who are signed up on a website to establish “arrangements” with wealthy/powerful men support Weiner? I have to give that one a big “Duh!”. Actually, since these are women who are seeking exactly the type of arrangement that the rest of the world considers scandalous, the percentage should be higher.

18-26 my butt.

Woman claiming to be in that group are probably well north of 2x26...age and waist size.

On second thought, Weiner can have those “ladies”.

“The women’s suffrage movement is only the small edge of the wedge, if we allow women to vote it will mean the loss of social structure and the rise of every liberal cause under the sun. Women are well represented by their fathers, brothers, and husbands.”
