Skip to comments.New poll shows Obama making big gains with female voters in battleground states

Female voters in battleground states are rallying around President Obama in droves, according to a new USA Today/Gallup poll released Monday, suggesting a gender gap could pose one of the Republicans' biggest challenges in this fall's general election race.

I may have been mistaken.
The poll was taken by USA Today—no internals, no showing who they asked. It’s just BS. Woman are smarter, but the news media in general is not that smart. They have to create news.
IMO woman should be running away from -0- not toward him.
The poll has already been debunked.
They over-counted democrats. The results are therefore bogus.
Where do they find these women that will rally around a fool that is destroying the future of their children? I’m beside myself.
Drive through any large city in the nation. You will find your skewed sample voters. Hint: They are not inside working. :)
“Where do they find these women that will rally around a fool that is destroying the future of their children?”
The women I know that have children will be angrily voting against him because of those children; the few women I know that will still vote for Obama happen to be childless (and spinsters).
What do these freaks think we tell our children about Obama, his policies, and his followers? My kids are all ears; they find it fascinating.
I don’t believe any polls coming out now. Period.
That said, the sisterhood can be dense sometimes.
Another utterly laughable push poll by the usual collection of morons.
The price of food and gas, the unemployment rate (double the ‘official’ rate), falling incomes and the shopping centers that are now ghost towns focus the mind wonderfully on things other than contraception.
Me thinks this is a bit of wishful thinkin' goin' on. ; )
Old news. There have been threads on FR all day about this.
I do not believe it.......
A USA Today Poll? What next,polls by The Workers’ Daily?
Who the eff cares. Why would I believe it? Big gains. Right. Soccer moms happy paying 4-5 bucks a gallon for gas. White moms so turned on about his race-baiting and silence about the white kids recently getting the crap kicked out of them by gangs of racist black punks.
yup I can really believe the propaganda.
I wonder if Rachel might be a bit "left of center".
The economy has hit men harder than women. And the polls show that more women want a healthcare entitlement.
These polls are pure bullcrap.
These polls are pure bullcrap.
1: The Poll is taken apart here:
2: ALL FREE POLLS SAY WHAT THEY ARE PAID TO SAY. Stop paying attention to them, they LIE!
Santorum needs to man up, stop being selfish and get the hell out. Dragging this thing out only helps Obama.
Tell women this:
If you want free contraception, cuts will have to be made elsewhere.
What do you want to eliminate?
What’s the difference between USA Today and The Workers’ Daily? None that I can see. Well, maybe USA Today uses more color ink.
Women have been voting for Democrats for years. If it weren't for this gender gap Democrats would lose every presidential election. Anyone who dismisses this poll is kidding themselves. Is it likely to be this bad come November? No. Is it possibly really this bad now? Yes. And come election day Obama will win the women's vote - probably by at least 5 points or more.
A simple look at wikipedia shows this persistence of this gender gap:
In every presidential election year from 1980 - 2008 women have outnumbered men in voting Democratic and the same is true for men outnumbering women voting Republican. From 1980 forward there is a definitive difference in partisanship between male and female voters.
Part of the problem right now is Rick Santorum's actual opposition to contraception ended up confusing what should have been a winning issue for Republicans. Instead of talking about why Republicans support protecting religious organizations from being forced to cover contraception, the debate ended up being about why some Republicans (most notably Santorum) believe contraception is "not okay". If the question is whether birth control is "not okay", Republicans lose and lose big. If it is about protecting religious institutions from having to cover it, we win.
Ignore the polls, trash Obama.
That is all.
This should surprise no one. Though I know no Republican women who are going to vote for President Obama because of the Republcan stance on women. It may hurt Republicans with Independents.
I agree with you re: the polls as we stand now. Alot can change between now and November. The polls now are meaningless.
Another scientific poll done by USA Today/Gallup/sarc...
What the made for media pollsters neglect to say is that women buy gasoline for their cars, too, search for jobs just as men do and are negatively affected by the effects of Obama caused inflation as are the rest of us.
I do not believe for a second the media’s propaganda that women are not affected by Obama’s mismanagement of our economy. Nice try.
My wife tells me that they don’t fall for the “contraception deception” either.
If Santorum were an actual good conservative candidate that didn't yammer on about contraception being "not okay", then I'd think it was great he was staying in and forcing Romney to earn the nomination. Unfortunately, Rick's belief that it is the President's job to have a national conversation on why contraception is "not okay" confuses the issue of the healthcare mandate and tarnishes all Republicans. His continued presence in the race just makes it easy for the media to lampoon all Republicans as being a party of backward old prudes that want to stop people from using rubbers and birth control pills. Once Santorum leaves the national stage and we can focus on the real problem of forcing religious organizations to insure that which they have a religious objection to, the gender gap problem will subside somewhat.
Another lie. What woman wants to be ruled by men and wear a burka?
They polled only registered, not likely voters and demonRAT Tw*ts were over sampled over pubbie women by 50%.
In a general sense, our domestic political balance began fracturing in the radical 60s. Kennedy and Johnson’s Viet Nam “conflict” preceded Nixon’s Watergate. Our national and local press ran with these highly charged events and became more bold about coloring their reporting and newscasts with their liberal and progressive viewpoints.
To be sure, the supposed hard news press has pretty much always been been closet liberals but years ago there were newsroom editors and radio and tv news producers that curbed the excesses, some of them, anyway.
The hard times of the late 70s begat Ronald Reagan who stemmed the liberal tide for a decade. But once the national press began openly campaigning to retain a president who demeaned the office by having extra-marrital sex with a young girl in or about the Oval Office, we knew they had lost all semblance of objective reporting.
Since that time reporting standards have all but disappeared in what we now call the MSM. I had hoped the internet and talk radio could stem the tide of liberalism and they have, to some extent. But not enough, to this point. The coming election will be the test of who holds sway in the reporting world.
In short, I contend that much of the degradation of our society would not have been possible to the extent which it has occured without our friends in the liberal press saying to hell with objectivity, I am now a progressive cheerleader.
Why are we surprised? Everyone was warned that if GOPe picks Romney, Obama wins again. I already know that he will win. The GOPe will just have to learn the hard way again.
