PHOENIX, May 15, 2012- A new CBS News/New York Times national poll of registered voters shows presumptive Republican nominee Mitt Romney edging President Obama, 46% to 43%.
Last month, CBS/NYTimes showed Obama and Romney tied at 46%, with other polls echoing the same outcome.
However, the most telling result of this new survey was that the key-voting block of women now favors Romney over Obama, 46% to 44%. Obama resoundingly won women in 2008, garnering 56% of the vote to then-Republican nominee John McCain’s 43%.
In the past few months, Democrats and the Obama campaign have claimed that the Republicans have been waging a ‘War on Women,’ citing the Republican disapproval of the HHS mandate that forces religious institutions to provide abortifacient medications to their employees.
The mainstream media got behind this Democrat talking point and spewed that Romney would strip women of their rights, yet the most liberal newspaper in the country is showing that the so-called ‘War on Women’ is hardly believable amongst the American electorate.
Romney not only leads among women voters, but his support among men voters also edges out President Obama’s support.
As an aside, it is interesting to note that no major news outlet reported on Romney’s lead today, showing that their ‘War on Women’ talking point as a complete failure.
