It turns out that when it comes to the 2016 election, the demographic that might decide it all is single women. Cue the Beyonce music.

More than 55 million voter-eligible individuals in the U.S. are single ladies, which is more than 25 percent of the eligible voter population. Unfortunately, only about half of single women vote in the U.S..

These numbers help Democrats especially as women tend to skew liberal and young women tend to skew even further liberal. As we have seen in primaries so far, while more women vote Clinton, more young women vote Sanders by a large margin.

It’s time for the single ladies of the nation to put their hands up and be counted.

All the single ladies…should be sure to voteSingle women are among the most powerful voters in this election
