Republicans are really freaking out about the results of their war on women, leading to hilarious spin like this:
"Governor Romney has been talking about issues that impact everyone and uniting people, and that's what we need in this country," Ayotte said. "This is a dialogue that [Democrats] have pushed. And it's really unfortunate that their advisor made these comments, but this is an example of the divisive politics of this president."Republicans have a funny definition of "winning".
Wyoming Senator Cynthia Lummis echoed the sentiment: "It is the Democrats that are accusing Republican women of being unconcerned about women."
The subtext: You picked this fight, but we're winning it.
And those numbers didn't start out that way. ABC:
White women, in particular, have shifted in Obama’s direction since the last ABC/Post poll March 10. Among registered voters, white women then favored Romney over Obama by 55-38 percent; today they divide evenly, 47-48 percent. Preferences among white men, by contrast, are essentially unchanged, at 61-35 percent for Romney now, 63-33 percent a month ago.USA Today:
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.If that's "winning" for Republicans, let's hope they keep "winning" all the way until November.
