AP POLL: ROMNEY ERASES O’S ADVANTAGE AMONG WOMEN
Well now. All that pandering. All those tens of millions of dollars spent on attack ads. All that disingenuous nonsense about the Republican “war on women.” All those lies about Mitt Romney. All for naught. Barack Obama’s once touted “gender gap” is no more. Gone. Just like his presidency will soon be.
Ladies – and gentlemen – with less than two weeks to go until Election Day, Mitt Romney has erased Barack Obama’s 16-point advantage among women, according to a new Associated Press-GfK poll. From AP:
After a commanding first debate performance and a generally good month, Romney has gained ground with women – and all Americans – on a number of important fronts, including their confidence in how he would handle the economy and their impressions of his ability to understand their problems.
Romney’s pitch to women has been focused squarely on the economy, making the case that what women want most is to ensure their families and their country are on a solid financial footing. The poll shows that message appears to be taking root; a month ago, women favored Obama over Romney on the economy 56% to 40%. Now, the split has shifted to 49% Romney and 45% for Obama.

But, hey – as on fire as Romney has been since the first debate, he couldn’t have achieved such an astonishing turnaround with women without a little help - from Barack Obama.
Yes, America, perhaps the most improbable wingman for a Republican presidential candidate in history has done what only O could do; his stubborn best to behave as peevishly, condescending, dismissive and derisive as he possibly could have behaved – ever since his thorough ass-kicking in the first debate.
Far be it from Rat to claim to be an expert on women, but as far as he can tell, most women not only have little appreciation for the spoiled behavior of an arrogant petulant child, they’re completely turned off by it – big time. Add to that O’s childish ridiculing of Romney – in which he engages on a daily basis – and Mitt couldn’t ask for a better wingman.
Way to go, O. Please keep up the good work. We’re counting on you.
