Obama takes big lead on Romney in latest Gallup poll


Women make ALL the difference

Barack Obama has taken a 4-point lead over Mitt Romney in Gallup’s latest national poll, up from a 47-47 tie in their last poll.

He’s up over Rick Santorum by an even larger 51-43 gap.

The big change came mainly from from women under 50 years old where President Obama enjoys a more than 30-point lead. This confirms recent polling by the Pew Research Center showing the gap between the president and Romney among all women at 58-38.

In other words, the latest Republican attacks on women appear to be taking their toll on the GOP candidates and that is exactly as it should be. If you are a warrior in the War on Women, you should pay those consequences.

Also telling is President Obama’s 51-42 lead in Swing States. In the last poll, he was down 2 points in the last poll. Additionally, the president also leads among independent voters 48-40.

Keep it up, Republicans. I love what you’re doing to your own chances.

  • Just as telling is that Obama and Romney are statistically tied among men. Romney needs to win the male vote by several points in order to win the election.

    Sounds like most men aren’t happy about the Republican war on women either!

    • An excellent point, Scotty. I know THIS man (me) isn’t!

    How can he not be up on Santorum by more points? The guy is such an utter tool.
