What is far from clear is whether Democrats will benefit in the midterm contests this fall," the New York Times reports.

"With their Senate majority at stake in November, Democrats and allied groups are now stepping up an aggressive push to woo single women -- young and old, highly educated and working class, never married, and divorced or widowed."
