Yes, Clevelanders voted heavily for Obama in 2012. No, the results don’t seem all that unusual.

Bill Cunningham is a politically conservative attorney who has hosted a radio talk show on Cincinnati’s WLW 700 AM station for more than three decades. Since 2011, he’s also hosted The Bill Cunningham Show, a weekday television talk program that is filmed in New York City and is currently shown on the CW Network.

I’ve never seen any video of Cunningham, but I know a little about him from his appearances on various shows aired in the Raleigh-Durham Triangle on WTKK 106.1 FM. He’s an occasional guest on Sean Hannity’s radio program, and three hours of Cunningham’s own show air on WTKK beginning at 10 p.m. Sundays. (I’m unclear on whether these Sunday broadcasts involve original content or repackaged segments from Cunningham’s daily radio program.)

I was listening to Cunningham this past Sunday when he said something that made my jaw drop. Cunningham’s guest at the time was Bill Tucker, an editor for and the author of a new book called Marriage and Civilization: How Monogamy Made Us Human. Although it was a comment by the host that caught my attention, I’ll let you read what Tucker said to set up that remark:

Tucker: I think you have to recognize that the Democrats have quite a racket going, and that is that the more single mothers they create, the more, the more they secure themselves [of] the vote of a huge percentage of the electorate. The breakdown — married people elected Mitt Romney in the last election. Married people voted about — married women voted for Romney. The split in the electorate now is not racial, it’s not income; it’s between married people and single people. And single women are this huge, are the largest — they’re about a quarter of the electorate now, and they voted just overwhelmingly, something like 65 to 35, for Obama, and they handed him the election, basically. The same thing happened in this recent election in Virginia. Now the Democrats have defined this, the issue — it’s a war against women.
