Failed War on Women: Romney Now Leads Obama Among Married Women by 17 Points

Just a statistical blip, I guess. Of 21 points.

On several measures, the presumptive Republican nominee is gaining ground on President Obama even as the president has slipped in some areas, according to a new ABC News-Washington Post poll out today.

Which candidate better understands the economic problems of average Americans?

Back in February Obama led Romney on that question by 17 percentage points. But the former Massachusetts governor has managed to cut the president’s advantage roughly in half — down to an 8 point gap.

And who’s more to blame for the tough economy — President George W. Bush or President Obama?

By a 49 to 34 percent margin more Americans still say Bush, but that 15 point divide has narrowed since January when it stood at 25 points.

The poll found the gender gap isn’t so wide anymore. Obama leads among female registered voters 51 to 44 percent — a smaller margin than back in April when he led 57 percent to 38 percent. The reason? Married women, who favored Obama by 4 points last month, now support Romney by 17 points.

Imagine if there was a swing in any category of 21 points in Obama’s favor. You suppose that would generate some headlines?

Worth noting of the issues most important to voters, 19 items are listed. Gay marriage is important to 1% of the respondents. Same for abortion. No  wonder Obama wants to distract the public with irrelevant issues.

How bad does it look for Obama? This poll was just of adults, not registered voters, and included only 22% Republicans.

    Sample biased in favor of Dems. And they used not likely voters or registered voters, but adults with a pulse. And for all that, the dear leader is losing ground. His internal polling must be abysmal. Combine that with laging fund raising and you have the potential for a blow out.
    Now we need to sit back and find out what the Iranians were promised to induce them to let inspectors back in.

    That makes sense. Married women care about fuel price, putting food on the table, and the financial futures of their children. Not to mention that their children inherit a free society where they are not slaves of an tyrannical government. I’m a married woman with two children. This man is destroying their future. You have to be a dingbat to vote for this man if you care about your children.

    Not with me he doesn’t. An Etch-a-sketch presidency is the death knell for conservatism.
    Etch-a-sketch, Boehner, and McConnell will be RINO’s on steroids shoving Big Government down our throats. Conservatives in Congress will be forced to sign off on more of their Big Government agenda.

    I’d much rather have conservatives united against Obama.

    I also believe that Etch-a-sketch is incompetent in governing. He is not running for businessman. He had an approval rating of 34% that was why he did not run for re-election. His state was ranked 47 out of 50 in job creation and he grew government.

    It’s funny how the GOPe tells us but Obama is a Marxist. However, Etch-a-sketch doesn’t believe that he is a Marxist. He just believes he is in over his head. It sure appeared that Etch-a-sketch was in over his head as governor. Now you want to reward him for his poor performance. That’s Affirmative Action.

    Maybe Etch-a-sketch should start calling Obama a Marxist night and day until the election.

    I can’t, won’t, and refuse to vote for this liberal. The country can’t survive 8 years of Etch-a-sketch. I won’t change my mind.

    This is in response to Jayrae.
    You seem to be saying that you oppose Obama so much that you want to discourage the rest of us from voting for Romney.
    This position sounds absurd to me.
    One has to believe that either you are insane, or are an Obama supporter pretending to be otherwise.
    Which is it? Am I missing something?
