Women Give Obama Big Lead In Swing States

A USA Today/Gallup poll gives Obama a nine point lead over Mitt Romney after trailing by two points in their last survey. The change appears to be a consequence of Republicans recently stressing anti-women positions:

The biggest change came among women under 50. In mid-February, just under half of those voters supported Obama. Now more than six in 10 do while Romney’s support among them has dropped by 14 points, to 30%. The president leads him 2-1 in this group..

Romney’s main advantage is among men 50 and older, swamping Obama 56%-38%…

In the poll, Romney leads among all men by a single point, but the president leads among women by 18. That reflects a greater disparity between the views of men and women than the 12-point gender gap in the 2008 election.
