We've heard it over and over and over again: "Women voters favor Barack Obama." Or "Mitt Romney has a problem with women voters." Or the big one: "Gender gap!"
A "problem?" A "gap?" Nice word choices. Of course, this is heavily broadcast in the liberal media. Any time they can put out a headline that lines up "problem" and "Romney," they will happily jump on the chance. This headingling of a gender gap is the "effect" of the media-induced "war on women". Yes, the fake war on women is the "cause," so to speak.
But I ask: when defining this problem, what stat are people looking at? Take a look at this recent CBS general election poll released yesterday: http://www.scribd.com/doc/104119402/Aug1b-Ctm-Elec?secret_password=24vdx7v29toba1fa1ie
Women favor Obama 51% to 41% - 10 percentage points.
Men favor Romney 49% to 40% - 9 percentage points.
So somehow, Mitt Romney is having a "problem" getting women's votes with a 10-point deficit, and the liberal mainstream media is headlining this "gender gap," but they're not calling out the nearly identical gender gap problem with the male vote for Obama? Hmmm...
Or what about this recent CNN/ORC poll from August 23rd. Check out page 20: http://i2.cdn.turner.com/cnn/2012/images/08/24/rel8a.pdf.
Women favor Obama 54% to 42% - 12 percentage points.
Men favor Romney 53% to 43% - 10 percentage points.
These are two examples of recent polls that show the "gender gap" in favor of Obama is very close to the gender gap in favor of Romney. Of course, the media won't tell you that. I could go on about this. But I think should do for now, and hopefully I'll be able to post more about this as these polls come out in the home stretch. Please share your thoughts below.
