Op-ed: As elections loom, US president losing support of once - sympathetic voters
In the last elections campaigns, it was possible to point to a political gender-based gap. While men tended to vote Republican, women tended to vote Democrat. Yet the recent polls show that the female vote is also shifting to the Right. Some 52% of women still support the Democrats, yet this marks a sharp drop in the face of the masculine zeal to topple the Left, and Obama knows it. Hence, his West Coast trip is dedicated to meetings with women and efforts to boost two female Democrats who had been serving in Senate for 18 years now.
Yet it's not only the women who are abandoning the Democrats. Americans who are 50 years of age and above are concerned that Democratic policies will undermine their future old-age allowances. Young Americans are also making it difficult for Obama. The 30-and-below group that brought him to power two years ago is known as an elusive constituency, and it is doubtful whether young voters will be heading to the polling stations en masse in nine days.

... and the dead.
Beware of the woman who is lied to and their trust betrayed...... they can be real nasty!!!!!
I'm at least glad to see that the number is dropping.
btw, this headline is the best thing I've read all day. Thanks. :)
Keep watching.....I am sure by 2012 that # will be even lower.
I loved the title too — I like articles with similar titles — but most do NOT appear in the MSM — this is from an Israeli paper.
I just tried the link again, worked before, now all of a sudden it’s not working.
The obvious silver lining in the very dark and dangerous cloud of Obama is that he is so extreme that he is waking the mushy middle up.......and that must include some women who wanted him to be the nice guy he pretended to be, and are not happy that he is revealing that he is a creepy, condescending punk.
Most adult women don't like punks. Only the hardcore will still support him.
Most adult women don’t like
btw, it was good to see a Kasich ad on that page - is that localized or does everyone see it? (Forgive my stupidity :). The Dems are pouring money into Ohio because we are a must win for the rats, and Obama has a VERY low approval rating here. Strickland has got to go, and I'm hoping that Obama's endless appearances here will help us get rid of him!
Obviously, they haven’t polled Freeper women who rock!
I wish women knew better in the first place. It is a shame they have to be motivated by revenge and not just the truth.
FORGET “ROCK THE VOTE”..
Now it’s “ROCK THE BOAT” ..
and see who gets SWEPT overboard.....I’m looking for the new Congress to de-funD the CZARS who are manipulating public policy with no oversight from Congress.
This over-50 American is concerned the Democratic policies will simply destroy America as we know and cherish it. It is obvious that they want to turn us into a third-world hell-hole while preserving all the benefits to the ruling elite and to the parasitic underclass. Yes that will "undermine my old-age allowance," but that is not my chief concern.
Women wanted to believe Obama was actually the guy he pretended to be; smart (everybody said so) smooth and competent. A good guy that that they could depend on to take care of the problems and do so with style. Now, they can see him for what he is; arrogant, condescending and threatening their financial security and that of their families as he creates massive change with no regard to what Americans actually want. In short: Obama has turned off many women - and millions more independents. He will not get them back because he will not alter his course. Instead, Obama will likely ‘double down’ in his last two years as president. It will be dark days for America but we’ll overcome and survive him. We’re Americans.
I will tell you from experience womens powdered douche works just as well if not better to get rid of skunk scent. I had a very pregnant Great Dane which got gassed and the lady at the checkout told me of the alternate to tomato juice. much easier to use and worked great.
I share your optimism. Obama isn't "Satan", even though he often behaves like a minor demon. We've survived the Jimmy-Carter Years, the Cold War Stare-Down with the Soviets, especially 9/11/01, and we'll find the resiliency and innovation to survive baby-child-Obama & his Socialist-Muslim hordes.
AMEN! In November 2008, I thought it was all over for America, but no more!
WE ARE AMERICANS! After this bum is out of office, we WILL recover, and perhaps become stronger for it.
People, you should have know better
We tried to warn you

Then we'll insert the douche-bottle-nozzle in Oval Orifice to counteract the skunk spray. I still contend that Barry is like the smiling skunk. He's done his damage.
Must be regional. My page showed a Pat Toomey ad.
I can assure you that when Hillary is the candidate in 2012, women will once again be stupid. As will the majority of voters - they just don’t learn. I can hear it now....”first woman president...historic, blah, blah, blah...”
I may be too optimistic, but I think some fundamental learning as to what the left really wants is taking place, and the vast majority of Americans just don't want it.
We still remember what it was like to live in a free country.
Interesting...mine had no ads at all.
you mean when Sarah runs for president? hillary can’t run unless Obama dies of natural causes in office.....not likely. hillary could not carry the black vote if she runs against Obama and won.....they would all stay home and she would lose.
He will move on to the world stage next year - leaving Hillary to secure his second term for the party. And, of course, whoever runs as a D will win 90% of the black vote.
Obama and the Dems don’t have much constituency left, except unions.
Union Thugs, gays, baby-killers, same-sex marriage proponents, Blacks and Crack HOs. That’s their constituency.
The Baraqqi coalition is still rock solid in the 35% range.
They still have a shot at a Clintonian plurality win in 2012 if they can find the right “independent” candidate to split the opposition vote.
(You're from CA, right?)
Seriously, I find this quite fascinating.
Interesting (and plausible) theory.
We didn’t recover from the damage done by FDR.
We didn’t recover from the damage done by LBJ.
Will we really recover from the damage done by BHO?
Each of the latter two built upon the socialistic junk erected by his predecessor(s).
I admire your optimism, but I am fearful and skeptical.
Democrats have built an enormous and permanent underclass that depends on them for sustenance. The producer class in this country is rapidly shrinking. I hope it is not too late and your are right.
BTW - UN SecGen term ends 12/31/11.
But I would add this thought. Most people were unaware of the damage FDR was doing because the books were written by New Deal supporters. Even with LBJ, it was only conservatives who understood the damage the Great Society did.
Now, we have a lot larger group of people who understand how dangerous liberalism is because they've finally put all their cards on the table and far more Americans see how ugly their game is now that it's been exposed.
That, I think, will be the factor that makes the difference in recovering from this leftist fiasco.
Feeling a little more optimistic? ;)
It's a perfect fit of corruption with corruption.
We'll see how things pan out in the next two years after Obama has had to deal with the stranglehold on his absolute power that the new Congress will affect. And we should see how he reacts very shortly.
It's not going to be nice.
This is probably the funniest post I’ve read in a long time!
Right...and no ads whatsoever! Wonder how many differences there are?
That’s the point that Amity Shlaes makes in “The Forgotten American.” When FDR was excoriating business and socializing the nation, he was the first to do it, so it was a novel approach to an America hungry for a solution. He also had a huge amount of budgetary headroom to do it because the federal share of GDP at the time was something like 4%.
You are right that we have the knowledge today and the historical record of failure of big government and liberalism. Plus, we have the advantages of mass communication outside the “normal” MSM channels — we no longer have to listen only to Cronkhite for our news. Today’s channels are much more like the Committees of Correspondence set up in 1775 to protect the colonies.
Like you, I swing back and forth. We need to get much more of the populace swung back to the side of liberty and independence. That is difficult to do when the enemy controls almost all K-12 and higher ed in the country.
I get the Kasich ad when I click on the link. We have got to defeat Strickland in nine days. Come on, Buckeyes! Let the recovery begin!!!
