Democrats usually do well with women but the gender gap is larger than usual. This is a sign that Romney is in big trouble heading into the election.

The hysteria over abortion and women being able to get free access to contraception and other preventative screening is nonsense.

Republicans yesterday compared the mandate for women contraception/preventative screening in the new healthcare law that went in effect yesterday to Pearl Harbor and 9/11. That statement ALONE makes it look like a war on women. They're getting too extreme.

Quote:
“I know in your mind you can think of the times America was attacked,” said Rep. Mike Kelly (R-Pa.), a freshman.

“One is December 7 — that is Pearl Harbor Day. Another was September 11 — that was the day of the terrorist attack.

“I want you to remember August 1, 2012 — the attack on our religious freedom. That is a date that will live in infamy, along with those other dates.”

No way. As we recently learned, women can just clench up real good and babies don't happen.

Romney should run a campaign ad that explores in more detail the GOP theory that eggs and sperm can tell whether they have been brought together by consensual sex versus rape and act accordingly.

Now what did you say the jobless rate for women is during the Obama administration? I find it interesting that people have no jobs but the most important issue we are hearing about is a woman's right to murder her offspring. Oh yes, and they are calling that abortion.

I think Obama is going to be a little shocked at how little the importance of murdering and preventing will seem when the woman is looking at not being able to eat. Some of you need to get a life.

And I have a question: Why does a woman who is not married need birth control? I think that is a statement about the morals of the Democratic Party. Makes me wonder if they don't have bigger problems than birth control. They are beginning to look like the party of Henry VIII. Corrupt!

A gender gap is a big sign of trouble? LOL

Give me a break. The only way women will turn this election is if no one else shows up for Mitt Romney. Guess what.....conservative enthusiasm is very high for the Romney/Ryan team.....I would advise you to pay more attention to the enthusiasm gap on the Obama side than the gender gap on the Romney side!

A woman who cannot afford to eat needs all the help she can get to make it through be it low cost/free birth control or an abortion should she see fit.

THIS married woman never wanted children so yes, bc was very important. *I* was not put on this earth to be a broodmare.

Hmmm.....would Republicans give up their right to own a gun for a job?

Didn't think so.

Why should women have to give up any of their rights to have a job?

Looking at the amount of legislative time and money Republicans are expending trying to curb women's rights.......it doesn't seem like their main concern is women having jobs, does it?

You are the one that wants women to still be unemployed. What on earth did you think I said? Obama wants everyone to depend on the government for everything. Romney wants people to be able to work and be responsible for themselves. I don't like either one of them, but you cannot overrule the entire country of voters. Actually not a lot of people chose these two because many stayed home. I wish in the November election they would at least go to the polls and write in someone else if they don't like these two.

I have another question for you: When did the government ever buy a gun for anybody? Women still can have abortions and buy birth control but tax money should never be spent for either of those things.

Oh my, I forgot about fast and furious.
