Gallup released a poll today showing a growing gender gap between President Obama and GOP frontrunner Mitt Romney in 12 key swing states. Obama is now leading Romney among women by statistically significant percentages in many of those states.
This is a major shift from the 2010 elections, in which Republicans won a majority of women. During that election cycle, women were turned off to Obama and the Democrats by the horrendous economy, sky-high unemployment, the revolting government overreach into health care, and the hydra-headed abuses of power carried out routinely by the Obama administration.
So, what changed? What accounts for the shift among women (at least in this particular poll)?
Team Obama knew that they couldn't win this year unless they got women to return to the Democrat fold. So they decided to whip up a phony, fraudulent "Republican war on women." It began with Team O ramming the HHS mandate down the throats of religious institutions, requiring them to violate their most deeply held beliefs by forcing them to provide insurance covering birth control, sterilization and abortion-inducing drugs. A complete violation and assault on religious freedom. The Catholic church and other religious leaders denounced it. Team O then announced an "accommodation," which was nothing more than smoke and mirrors to make them look "reasonable."
Then came Sandra Fluke and the orchestrated "war on women." Like Occupy Wall Street, the Fluke circus and the bogus "war on women" were manufactured out of thin air by the Left to drive a wedge among women and get them to "come home" to the Democrats.
It's apparently working, if this Gallup poll is to be believed.
Ladies: DO NOT FALL FOR THIS MANIPULATION. Nothing else has changed since 2010! All of the things that drove you to vote against Obama and the Democrats still exist: the economy stinks, unemployment is high, ObamaCare is so constitutionally insane that the Supreme Court must decide it, and Team Obama's abuses of power continue apace.
The only thing that's changed is their efficiency in MANIPULATING YOU! Don't fall for it. Don't be one of their "useful idiots." Wake up, before they seize ever more power and more and more of your freedoms. And then, there will be a REAL war...on ALL of us.
