Mitt Romney Could Face Huge Hurdle With Women Voters in Swing States


A Quinnipiac University/CBS News/New York Times poll released Wednesday in three key swing states shows President Obama leading his Republican rival, especially among female voters.

Traditionally, Democrats do better among women than Republicans, but the gender gap in this poll was remarkable: more than 20 points in Ohio and Pennsylvania.

Pollsters say it’s the president’s message that’s pulling women in.

Campaigning in Ohio Wednesday, Mr. Obama pushed the notion that government isn’t the only solution, but it should play a role in boosting the economy, especially for the middle class.

Pollsters say that message resonates, particularly with single women struggling to get by.

    Two type of women will not vote Romney. Entitlement women and young women. Women who work hard know Obama is not good for our country. Romney is wasting his time trying to convert the baby’s mama’s and young stupid women. Romeny needs to focus on getting mean against obama and quit acting like this is a polo game using gentlemen’s rules.

    • Victor Magilke says:

      He has all the black women and the single white women with illegitiment children duped. They will all support him again.

  2. juniebug says:

    Women who are buying Obama’s message–wake up! What has he done for you in 4 years? Our country is being destroyed by his policies. The only promise he’s kept is the “change”; from Republic to socialist govt. For our children, grandchildren and their children’s sake, vote him out. Remember “It’s not what your country can do for you, but what you can do for your country!” Don’t believe the freebies, for they will be short-lived. We are broke with no budget. Vote Mitt Romney Nov 2012, then we have a chance.

    • Victor Magilke says:

      These same women will continue to support Obama because they know he will continue to support them and all their illegitiment children. The time to put an end to that is now rather than later.

  3. TexRancher says:

    If I was a woman, I’d be insulted. Surely the women of this country are not that stupid that they can be conned to support this fraud of a president! Have they been asleep for the last three years?

    • RubyBlu says:

      I am a woman and I ‘feel’ insulted for the women in Ohio and Pennsylvania (I don’t live there)…….where is your pride, women?!

  4. Sam says:

    Women put Obama in office in 08 and apparently are ready to do it again. Wjy is beyond comprehension. Muslims hold women in very low regard.

  5. el_loco_jp says:

    Did they only poll welfare moms? No responsible woman supports odumbo.

  6. 1badass says:

    Women like Elizabeth Warren who’ve been coddled from cradle to grave and taken every not so legal means to steal her liberal education are the only “women” I see voting for this guy again.They’ve been the biggest resultant group of unemployment due to his priorities.Like others have said only the entitlement crowd of sucklings will vote for this guy to give them something that they’re not willing to work for.They have babies on the backs of their parents and continue to lay down with cowards of entitlement themselves for a moment’s pleasure like dogs in the night.Until these types are outted for their pretentious mindsets the Country will continue to wither on the vine of politicians content to provide for them with all for the return of their support at the polls.

    • Victor Magilke says:

      You know the old adage, ” if you lay down with dogs, you wake up with fleas.” I hate to talk bad about man’s best friend, they much better than the Obama supporters.

  7. Aalee says:

    I can only speak for the women in my family. They have all been woken up and will not be voting for Obammy.

  8. Floyd says:

    It does sicken me that women eat up BHO’s b.s. A scammer and liar just like Bernie Madoff. Don’t listen to that fatherly figure (MR) who has tried to preach good morals and hard work.
    Unfortunately young people aren’t good at judging character. Vote for the “cool guy” and forget the boring older guy.

    • Victor Magilke says:

      Thank God not all the young believe Obama’s horse manure. Many of my sons friends in college don’t buy his Hope and Change malarkey.

    • RubyBlu says:

      …and it could be the case with these ‘types’ of women who are not attracted to decent, honest, hardworking men; they prefer the type that beats them, cheats on them, and finally dumps them. They somehow never learn…

  9. junkmailbin says:

    i will refrain from a long tirade about this. Note: if you get lots of free stuff paid for others and your behavior is condoned, you will support those that supply these

  10. jude says:

    and why in hell has he not boosted the economy since he took office, more lies from this potus, and I’m a women and don’t believe he supports working women that built their own businesses from ground up without government help.

  11. WHY; how can anyone in their right mind want more communism???????

    • Victor Magilke says:

      I don’t understand some of the American people. If they know anything of history, they know how devastating Lenin and communism was to Russia.

  12. Cheryl Lynn says:

    I am a woman. I watch the news and I was smart enough not to vote for him the first time. If women vote for him in large numbers it is because they don’t watch enough fox news or never listen to conservative radio talk shows. My feeling is to many people in general are not informed and they go to the polls thinking the people in charge are doing a good job. Be an informed voter and then most people would vote more conservative because the Democrats have no common sense solutions.

    • how can you not be informed?? do you not buy food, gas, clothes, do you not know people out of a job, do want the government telling you you must by birth control for losers??

    • Victor Magilke says:

      Right on Cheryl. Its a pleasure to read a post by an intelligent female voter.

  13. MORE disinformation to suppress the conservative voters;; do not fall for this lame stream media charade;; we are in control of this thing.

  14. billy2 says:

    wman want the freebees, and they start today, they will get a taste of it and will not give it up come hell or high water

  15. kid721952 says:
