The headline on Drudge this morning…
All the polls I’ve read since Democrats started the “war on women” meme back in February have shown it’s a loser.
The new USA Today/Gallup poll linked today on Drudge agrees:
As the presidential campaign heads into its final weeks, the survey of voters in 12 crucial swing states finds female voters much more engaged in the election and increasingly concerned about the deficit and debt issues that favor Romney. The Republican nominee has pulled within one point of the president among women who are likely voters, 48%-49%, and leads by 8 points among men.
That said, at least one other poll I’ve missed has given Obama a huge lead among women in the past, but that lead, Pew agrees, is gone.
But don’t get comfortable. There are three weeks left before the election. Abortion groups can do a lot of damage in that time. Their backs are against the wall. If they lose Obama, they lose A LOT. If they lose Obama they potentially lose contraception funding, funding for International abortion groups, and funding for Planned Parenthood on both the federal level and in states Obama has overruled. There’s also that ongoing federal investigation Obama won’t be able to meddle with.
Expect abortion groups to move now to desperation mode, when who knows what they will do. That said, all the money they promised to spend on tv ads and mailings should just about be spent.
