Why do you watch CNN?

From your source:

The CNN/Opinion Research Corp. survey is not a measurement of the views of all Americans, since only people who watched the debate were questioned and the audience included more Democrats than Republicans.
The fact that women vote for Democrats more often than they vote for Republicans and in larger numbers than men is no surprise. There is nothing astounding about this uninspiring poll by CNN.

According to Sam Donaldson, McCain took the debate, so IMO it's all about opinion and who you felt in your heart answered your questions or concerns. I think women vote on the agenda, not the party.

I guess you're not following this, but -
woman and independents are the people that Obama is now reaching out to in order to win, and he is doing it.

As I said before, this is THE demographic that is going to decide this race. It is all going to come down to white suburban women. Both candidates know this. That is why Obama did what he had to do in keeping a calm and cool head and why McCain choose Palin. Obama could have had this race all but over now if he had picked Hillary. I understand why he might not want her and Bill in the White House because they are sly and corrupt but it still would have made winning much easier.
