Neither ObamaCare nor RomneyCare mandate health care, they mandate insurance. Maybe that's why women are concerned. The article doesn't give the single/married breakdown. In 2008, 70% of all single women voted for Obama (citation below). He lost married women 47-50.

"A lot of pundits have leapt on the idea that the recent debates over government-funded or mandated contraception have made the GOP brand toxic to women. But the USA Today poll indicates that the issue's impact is rather more qualified than that.
Both men and women rate "government policies on birth control" as the least important question in 2012, and 63 percent of them don't even know where Romney stands on it. About the same proportion dislikes Romney's position (24 percent) as much as they do Obama's (25 percent).
The real gender gap in the USA Today poll is that men think the deficit is the most important issue while women think it's health care. In short, independent women voters are more exercised about the GOP's opposition to "Obamacare" than they are its objection to free contraception."...via Instapundit

(22nd parag): "Single women voted by better than two to one for Obama over McCain (70-29 percent). In a post-election analysis, the polling firm Greenberg Quinlan Rosser concluded: “Barack Obama would have lost the women’s vote and the 2008 election if it were not for the contribution of the unmarried woman. All told, Obama split men 49-48 percent, but lost married women 47-50 percent. Unmarried women, however, delivered 70 percent of their vote to the Democratic candidate, up from 62 percent in 2004.
While not as liberal as their female counterparts, single men are substantially further to the left than either married men or women. In the March 31 Gallup survey, a 51-41 majority of married people called passage of health care reform “a bad thing,” while a decisive, 60-26, majority of the unmarried called it “a good thing.”
As each of these left-leaning constituencies grows, they transform the Democratic Party. Greenberg Quinlan Rosner research surveys for the Democratic group Women’s Voices, Women’s Votes found that while 16 percent of the entire population received some form of public assistance, the percentage was much higher for the following constituencies: 28 percent for unmarried women, 36 percent for African Americans, and 26 percent for Hispanics."
More and more medical care will no longer be recommended, given, paid for, provided. 30 million more people trying to see the same or even fewer doctors--obviously can't happen. The money to pay for the 30 million new people (and likely democrat voters) and new bureaucracies has to come from somewhere.

Ed. note: The author of the above article thinks Romney has to turn into a worse marshmallow than he already is to get more women. Obama didn't act like a marshmallow in 2008 to get all those single women to vote for him. He won as soon as he beat Hillary Clinton. It would be more interesting to see polls on how that happened. Aside from Oprah.
