Romney erases Obama advantage among women in new poll | Fox News
Mitt Romney's post-debate surge appears to have all but wiped out President Obama's once double-digit lead among women voters.
A new Pew Research Center survey depicted a remarkable swing in the numbers, with Romney pulling even among women in polling late last week. In September, the same polling outfit showed Obama leading by 18 points among women.
Among all likely voters surveyed, Romney climbed from an 8-point deficit last month to a 4-point lead.
His favorable rating hit 50 percent for the first time in that survey, while Obama's fell from 55 to 49 percent.
The poll also showed voters putting more faith in Romney on issues ranging from the economy to the budget deficit. The two are even, at 44 percent each, on the question of who is the stronger leader. Obama led on that question by 13 points last month.
Suck on that, Obamabots!
