Obama has support among women

A USA Today-Gallup survey released today confirms what the Elon University Poll showed last month: More women in North Carolina support the job President Obama is doing…and more men don’t.

The USA Today-Gallup poll is of likely voters in 12 swing states, including North Carolina, but it doesn’t break out state-by-state results. The Elon Poll surveys citizens and does not break out likely voters.

The Elon Poll showed that women (51) expressed stronger approval of Obama’s job performance than men (38 percent). Likewise, men (57 percent) disapprove of his job performance compared to women (40 percent).

Thanks to President Obama’s visit to Mount Holly, the Elon University Poll results got some prominent mentions.
