Limbaugh Pitches GOP Dating Service To Win Over Unmarried Women

October 7, 2014 2:56 p.m.

Rush Limbaugh thinks that marriage may be the key to Republicans taking the Senate in 2014.

“The Republican party would be well-advised to set up a dating service and to embark on a policy of arranging dates for as many single women as possible,” Limbaugh said on his radio sow on Tuesday.

He cited a Women’s Voices Women Vote Action Fund poll released Monday that found that unmarried women favor Democrats. According to the poll, unmarried women support Democrats over Republicans 58 to 36 in the 12 battleground states.

And Limbaugh is pretty sure all these women must need is a man. He said that Republicans have so far failed to reach out to the demographic, and might as well get into the online dating game.

“They can start up a dating service — maybe the only thing they can do,” he said.

Republicans have yet to set up a dating site, but have released ads targeted at women voters. Conservative group Americans for Shared Prosperity released an ad in September in which a woman describes President Obama as a boyfriend who thinks she only cares about free birth control.
