Just another reason to repeal sufferage. Women gave us Obozo in the first place because they bought into the whole touchy feely hope and change BS. Biggest difference between men and women is that men “think”, women “feel”.

You are only too right, Raybob.

What’s right is what’s politically incorrect, I’m afraid.

We might as well have McCain again.

Romney is slightly better than McCain. Women like his hair better and that is important to them when voting.

Romney is the designated loser.

As soon as his spot is secure he will come out in favor of new giveaways to try to attract female votes, maybe the $50 abortion like he did in Massataxes. Who knows.

Not this woman. However, in 2008 I “felt” that a community organizer would be a divider. :-)

Seriously, if I thought all women would not be allowed to vote, I would give up my vote without a struggle because I trust men to do the logical and right thing WAY more than I trust most women. But we know that the left would cheat with women not being allowed to vote as they do with everything else.

With the exception of Conservative women, females will always pick the candidate who is more likely to favor baby killing. They also fall prey to the hyped up rhetoric of gender issues in the workplace. Add to that the new generation “Like, OMG” crowd. Gingrich or Santorum would be losing in large numbers, too. Women will put an openly gay person in the White House before favoring a Conservative or Republican. My girlfriend is a school teacher and she has said that her female cohorts still “giggle” when the topic of Obama arises.

Team O’bama will try to make this election about Romney. We need to make it about O’bama. There’s an old saying in the legal profession about how easy it is to indict a “ham sandwich”. O’bama needs to be our ham sandwich. We need to keep hammering him on all of his screwups in the last four years. But, chief among them, we need to lead with “Why was your first presidential act the passing of O’bamacare instead of passing legislation allowing our free market to create jobs?” This is the crux of his vulnerability as far as I’m concerned.

In other news, Winged monkeys began swarming out of Obama’s ###, full of admiration and love for the safe harbor provided.

Are you going to believe ANYTHING ABC reports?

Another poll manipulated by the lamestream media. Rasmussen has had Obama on a downward trend for the last week, and every day he and Mittens are in a statistical tie.

Without the solid black vote, the gender gap disappears. Why do you think that Obama put himself at the lynch mob? Likewise, the manufactured contraception flap. He needs the vote of white, single professional women. Plus all the steps to solidify the support of the gay-rights lobby. Nothing but emotion and self-interest holds all these together. His best hope is, however, to conceal the true economic situation, to preach that he needs more time to let his policies work, that they would be working now were it not for Republican obstruction. Everyday the ap send out the Obama take on things.

Here is a PDF of the survey. I don't see any party breakdown, but two things stick out that makes this more of an Obama push poll than anything else.

If the American people are opposed to Obama care, why is Obama favored on health issues 48-38?

And ever after the open microphone with Medvedev, why is he favored on foreign policy (Int'l Affairs) 53-36?

Obama is favored on Job Creation 46-43. Have we all passed through a mirror and entered Alice's Wonderland? The whole thing is LOONEY

Yeah, whatever. Just part of the narrative. 12% Unemployment, 5.00 gas, amd Moochelle are too hard to run an “accomplishment” platform. So Obama unveils Susie Fluke, and ABC follows suit.
Newsflash, only Obama women care whether Fluke has enough condoms for the weekend..

Jeez, finally a clear headed post.

This MSM poll sets everyone fluttering like a bunch of hens when the dog gets in the coop. Apparently you're the only one to immediately figure out that Democrats were way overweighted in the polling sample.

This is a poll of “adult” voters (not likely voters) and an 11 point Dem advantage in the sample. unlike some gullible people, I’m not buying what the MSM is peddling.

I have met a number of conservative women who have said they would make such a sacrifice to save the country. Liberal women? 'F' the country...what's in it for me?

You are right of course.

You may wish to disagree with me, but these polls can be debiased...
My rough calculation says, taking the bias out, the Presidential race at this time says Romney 49.8, Obama 45.2 at a minimum... if the ABC folks had done this honestly

They used 24% Republicans 35% Democrats when the reality is the country (as per Rasmussen) is 36% GOPer and 32% Democrat. Also just yesterday Gallup said women support Obama at only 49% a 7 point drop from his 56% in 2008. Gore and Kerry had 54% and 51% of women and still lost. This is pure psy-ops lies from the MSM - but of course the media would NEVER lie would they?

Yawn.

There is always a gender gap no matter if it's a Republican or a Democrat who wins.

Clinton won reelection with an 11 point "gender gap."

Obama did no better than W's reelection with the gender gap, 7 points.

It means nothing. The last Republican to take a majority of both sexes was Bush41 in 1988 and Clinton only did it in 1992.

Why are Conservative women who give a d@mn about this Country going into the minority camp?

If the overwhelming majority of women pull the lever for Obama in 2012, then I will maintain the opinion that women should be systematically disallowed to vote.

They will remain a HUGE reason that American society is being destroyed by this Kenyan loser, just as they are a HUGE reason why he is in office right now.
