Winning the female vote

A new Quinnipiac poll shows that President Obama has an 18-point lead among women, helping him to a 49% to 45% lead over Gov. Romney among likely voters nationwide.

That may help to explain why North Carolina is a battleground state.

In the Elon University Poll released on Labor Day, women were pretty evenly split between Obama (45%) and Romney (44%.) Romney dominates among male voters. The female breakdown was somewhat surprising because Democrats and Obama have routinely trended well with women. We will track that again in our next poll before the election.
