DENVER (AP) -- Here's one more political reality that the Republican Party must confront: The number of unmarried married, an important voting group, is growing rapidly, and for decades, single women have voted overwhelmingly for Democrats.

Women are postponing marriage as they increasingly graduate from college and join the workforce. Census figures show that from 2000 to 2010, the number of unmarried women increased by 18 percent.

Single woman already account for one-quarter of the electorate.

Some Republicans warn that unmarried women are the greatest danger to the party's viability.
