Skip to comments.Poll: Boosted by women voters, Obama opens swing-state lead over Romney
Posted on 04/02/2012 6:24:21 AM PDT by C19fan
With all the usual caveats about early polls in play, the generally reliably trending USA TODAY/Gallup Poll has seen a rather abrupt turn in the battleground states over the past month among one demographic. Women.

Add in two large blue so-called 'swing' states that the GOP nom doesn't even need to win = guaranteed self-identified Dem female oversample = survey fail
So let me see if I understand this; Obama has been tanking with women...even after the Fluke diversion, but now all of a sudden he's being “boosted” by women? And you guys are buying this? Let me further ask you; if Obama is doing so swell amongst women (and the population at large) why is he not running on the economy, gas prices, unemployment, oil drilling, ObamaCare...yada, yada?
Sorry, but some of you folks sound like spineless wussies: “Oh no, we're doomed...whatever shall we do?” Some advice: grow some onions and stop believing everything you hear and read. If Obama was doing well right now, he wouldn't be relying on diversions such as contraceptives, and race baiting.
The Dems and Leftists must laugh their a$$es off at us! Pathetic!
Anyone knowingly helping obama by staying home in November is a traitor.
We can’t endure 4 more years of this and by 2016 there may be nothing left to salvage.
And it all began with Betty Friedan, a Communist cadre who left college to work for a big Communist labor-union newspaper.
(She said later in a women's-magazine story I read, that she left college to follow a man, her boyfriend, who dumped her. Bullshine. She was a Communist, and the Party called her and put her to work on Feminism.)
I hope you are right....my goodness, I hope you are right.
Government is their Sugar Daddy.
I disagree with those who say Obama can’t be beaten..
I am supporting the person who has the most delegates and USED to have a chance to beat Romney. Why support someone who I am also not convinced is all he is touted up to be on FR. He can’t even get his own party to vote for him.
That said, neither has a chance to stop Romney now, and Newt and Rick both know it.
All the gibberish otherwise is just gibberish. So frankly, we can stop trashing them now. The trash has already been thrown in the truck and delivered to the landfill.
This primary process was set up to make it almost impossible for the guys that don’t have the big bucks and big donor backing to win.
The only thing that irritates me anymore is hearing a snit like Ann Coulter, who I used to like, making herself look like an hysterical groupie over the process that is hurting poor Romney. A process that her buds in the GOP set up and she is now pissing and moaning about.
I no longer care about who is angry at who. Santorum is no more responsible for the outcome than Newt, Paul, Romney the GOP. You just want a person to blame it on. The only reason this is happening now is because the GOP wants Santorum and Newt to go away because the process they set up is hurting the little Mittster. Mitt is hurting because more people in more ststes have seen his negative ads and are turned off by it.
The only reason I will vote for ANY Repubic is that when and if Obama has his second term he will appoint Supreme Court judges.
“Assuming that President Obama is re-elected and that Justice Ginsburg does retire at some point in the next Administration, who will be the next nominee? One thing is certain: it will be a woman. It is inconceivable that a Democratic administration with any reasonable choice would cause the gender balance of the Supreme Court to revert to seven men and two women. Relatedly, appointing three women in a row to the Court is excellent politics.
President Obama will also have a strong desire to pick an ethnically or racially diverse nominee. It would be disappointing for the nations first African-American President to make two white appointments, leaving the Court with seven white members. A more diverse Court is a better legacy. Given that the President already appointed the first Latina Justice, most likely is an African-American or Asian-American nominee. That said, I think race and ethnicity are plus factors, rather than an imperative like gender.”

I agree Obama can be beaten, he just can’t and won’t be beaten by a pathetic piece of trash like Romney.
What does the (=) sign in your tag signify?
Just wait till our side starts actually campaigning with a solid nominee. That will change rapidly, especially since it is obvious how well the Romney campaign has been using negative campaign tactics. They can easily turn this against Obama. Especially as weak as Obama is on his record and by then, the ruling on Obamacare will be in our favor.
Right now most of the negative image the moderates and Independents have on Republicans, is due to the high profile radical image and negative rhetoric against women that Santorum has been getting all the headlines for.
That will change once our main economic message starts taking effect. And Romney does have a strong economic message and the Executive experience to implement it. I also believe Romney will ask Newt to join the effort.
[Why support someone who I am also not convinced is all he is touted up to be on FR. He cant even get his own party to vote for him.]
It’s obvious that Romney has more Delegates than all the others combined. So, your claim is obviously wrong. Somebody HAS been voting for Romney after all.
It could definitely happen that way.
I disagree with that sentiment too. I’m a pessimist by nature, by I believe my cat could beat Obama. Public disgust with Obama grows daily..
I haven’t been wrong yet.
“It is embarrassing watching fellow FReepers act like a bunch of pu$$ies!”
Conservatives need to get with the program and learn how to fight the information WAR against the left.
There are so many areas that need work, but the potential is there for those willing to step up.
The sad fact is too many are just flat out scared.
Scared of speaking out, scared of the government, scared of openly and freely excercising their constitutional rights.
Or just flat out lazy.
Sitting in front of a TV watching movies and “sports” while whining “we are so screwed” ain’t gonna cut it, folks.
Public disgust with Obama grows daily..”
He is riding high in the polls RIGHT NOW. Well, high enough in any event to win re-election.
I’m very worried. If the country is dumb enough to elect obama, it is dumb enough to re-elect him....
