Watching the end of a Rachel segment about Obama having a 15 point lead among woman.

Now he won by 13 over McCain and had 7 points overall. Did anyone pick up what poll she was referencing? Because if he is up by 15 with women, there is no possible way he is only up by 3 to 5 overall.

5. Thanks, will have to look at the internal on that poll

 

A 15 point lead among women, who are over 1/2 of the electorate, should not equate into a minor lead overall. He would need to be losing men by 15 points, which would not seem likely when including blacks, hispanics, etc.

2. The corporate news media needs to make up its mind.

I really hope this poll is true, but its mighty interesting how Obama is now leading among women by 15pts, however just a week ago the media was enthusiastic about a poll saying Mittens was leading Obama among women. Which, is it? Make up your mind corporate bs news media!!

3. Only up by 15% with women? That's SCARY low. He should be at LEAST up by 30%.

6. sure there is he could be losing men by a huge margin

His approval rating among white men has fallen rather low so that isn't totally unreasonable. In 08 he did better with white males than either Kerry or Gore had, and I doubt he will do as well this time as he did in 08.
