Obama Losing the Ladies?

A new ABC News/Washington Post poll shows President Obama’s favorables upside down for the first time since February, with 47% favorable and 49% unfavorable among registered voters.

Curiously, the decline comes from women.  Last April, his favorability among women was extremely positive at 57-39.  Now, it’s negative, at 46-50.

The GOP has said that its ads falsely accusing Obama of eliminating the work requirement for welfare were working well among women, especially single women.   Maybe this is the result.

As for Mitt, the same poll shows his favorables upside down as usual, at 43 to 48%.

The Romney campaign may be trying to convince women to stay home (which is where the GOP thinks they belong anyway).  If they can’t get women to like Mitt and vote for him, they can work to suppress Obama’s votes from them.

Obama won women last time by 13%.  Right now, a separate ABC/WaPo poll shows that he leads them by only 6%.

    I don’t buy it. Just becuase it’s called a poll doesn’t make it a reflection of reality.
