Women were a large part of his voting base in 2008 and he has seen that support drop since Obamacare passed, the stimulus failed, and the debt skyrocketed. What has he done to get them back?
He claimed there is a war on women by the Republicans as if there are no female Republicans and the male Republicans are single and have no wives, mothers and daughters. :wink:

Then today he held a Women's forum at the White House. Was this to talk about the economy or was it to win them back POLITICALLY? If it wasn't an election year and if he hadn't seen his poll numbers drop, would he be inviting women to the White House and is it legal for him to be using the White House for campaigning to win back the Women's vote?

My guess is he would rather be on the Men only Golf Course but that is not going to win Women back so now he's complaining about men only golf courses and holding meeting to make it look as if he gives a da*n. :roll:

What was it Oldtimer said Oh yea I remember
Its apparent that the majority of most women support Obama/Dems over Romney/Repubs-- especially after birth control became a major issue...


BUT

Why Obama's poll numbers are crashing: 5 theories

Economic forecasts are brightening, and the GOP presidential race is turning ugly. But puzzlingly, Obama's approval rating just hit a record low

posted on March 14, 2012, at 10:26 AM

President Obama's poll numbers have taken a sudden and drastic dip, falling to a record-low 41 percent in one survey this week.

On Monday, when a Washington Post/ABC News poll showed President Obama's approval ratings sinking to dangerously low levels, some number-crunchers wrote it off as "statistical noise." Then, on Tuesday, a New York Times/CBS News poll delivered even worse news, showing Obama's approval rating falling 9 points in a month, to a record-low 41 percent. These dire poll numbers come just as the economy and job market seem to be steadily rebounding, and as Obama's Republican presidential rivals are locked in an often-ugly primary battle. Why is the president's popularity plummeting? Here, five theories:

1. Gas prices are taking their toll
In both new surveys, pollsters laid much of the blame for Obama's sinking numbers on the rising price of gas. In the Times poll, 54 percent of respondents said a president can do a lot about the cost of gas, and in the Post survey, 65 percent disapproved of Obama's handing of gas prices. That could explain Obama's declining support among independents, says Noam Scheiber at The New Republic. Many independents are working-class whites, and "rising gas prices hit working-class voters hardest." Apparently their pain has "translated quite quickly into softer support for the president."

2. Americans don't feel any better off
Gas prices are only the tip of the iceberg, says John Hinderaker at Power Line. "The wealthy have fared reasonably well during the Obama years," but the economic recovery, such as it is, hasn't really benefited poor and middle-class families. "They are starting to get fed up." With much of the country still feeling "economic pain and insecurity," Obama hurts himself by touting the improving jobs picture, says Jonathan Chait at New York. "The public is ready to credit him for trying [to fix the economy]... but they do not think that it's morning in America and respond badly to any suggestion that they ought to feel cheerful."

3. Afghanistan and Iran are hurting him
Obama's approval rating on foreign policy has tanked 10 points, to 40 percent. "So what has happened in the realm of foreign policy during the past few weeks?" says Joseph Cannon at Cannon Fire. The war in Afghanistan "keeps finding ways to get worse" — witness the recent Koran burnings and alleged murder of Afghan civilians by a U.S. soldier — and Obama has "said some very dangerous and belligerent things about Iran," hinting that war with Tehran is a possibility. Well, Americans are sick of war, and they surely don't approve of a president who might start another one.

4. Blame the contraceptives debate
The conventional wisdom is that the ongoing flap over contraceptive mandates is "killing Republicans among female voters," says John McCormack at The Weekly Standard. But according to the Post/ABC poll, Obama's approval dropped 3 points among women over a month when birth control mandates were "the biggest story." In the Times poll, women also favored allowing employers to "opt out" of the mandate "for moral or religious reasons," says Mickey Kaus at The Daily Caller. I guess "Obama wasn't such a genius to pick a fight over mandated contraception coverage."

5. These polls are just outliers
There's "something weird" about these polls, says Joe Weisenthal at Business Insider. Newer polls from Reuters and Gallup show Obama's approval rating on the rise, to 50 percent and 49 percent, respectively. "Maybe those two bad polls were just... noise?" If you'll allow me to channel "my inner Andy Rooney," says Libby Spencer at The Impolitic, "there's too many damn polls." And what do they tell us? "The electorate is fickle as hell." We'd be just as well off using a Magic 8 ball.



Obama craters in polls, loses support among women
Another media fairy tale bites the dust.

Everybody knows Obama is just killing the Republicans with this “War on Women” stuff, right? Panicked female voters are stampeding into the waiting arms of the Left, their ears still burning with the harsh words Rush Limbaugh deployed against the sainted Sandra Fluke. Liberals had but to chant the magic phrase “Republicans want to ban contraceptives,” and the 2012 election was over.

But that’s not what is happening. Obama has absolutely cratered in the polls over the last couple of weeks… and he’s slipping among women. Say it with me once again: liberals are losing this battle.

Even as reporters were feverishly scribbling columns about how “the fragile gains Republicans had been making among female voters have been erased” by the contraception battle, the Washington Post and ABC News produced polls that showed Obama’s approval rating falling 3 points among female voters (and 6 points among men.)

Then CBS News and the New York Times released an even worse presidential approval poll on Monday, in which “President Obama’s approval rating has hit the lowest level ever in CBS News polling.” His approve-disapprove numbers stood at 41-47 in this poll. He was at 50-41 just a month ago.

In the CBS poll, Obama’s approval rating among women dropped 12 percent.

Now, to be clear, opinion polls are finicky beasts. Obama hitting rock bottom now doesn’t mean he’s doomed in November, any more than a spread of good polls would make him a shoo-in. A great deal of his poll slide is due to Obama’s general failure as President, most especially reflected in rising gas prices. I suspect his feeble excuses for this are only hurting him more. If there’s one thing voters really dislike, it’s the image of a hapless, out-of-touch chief executive. Obama radiates that image with everything he says, does, and doesn’t do.

But it’s pretty clear from these polls that the media mythology of a triumphant Left riding its insulting “War on Women” narrative to victory is nonsense. At best, the Democrats have milked this thing for a virtually undetectable pause in Obama’s general polling slide, and even that modest benefit is highly debatable.

We’re actually dealing with three separate issues here, which liberals have been desperate to conflate. Originally, we had the questions of religious and economic liberty surrounding ObamaCare’s contraception mandate. That was a horrific disaster for the Democrats, with damage rapidly spreading beyond the (very important) Catholic vote.

Their awareness of how badly this was going for them led to the Sandra Fluke affair – which, if you’ll recall, originally involved trying to shoe-horn Fluke into congressional testimony as a last-minute substitution, replacing a carefully vetted guest with a leftist agitator and her phony propaganda. It didn’t work, so the Democrats staged a fake congressional hearing to push Fluke’s nonsense about helpless co-eds bankrupted by $3000 birth control bills into the media.

That wasn’t working either, so at the exact moment people were scratching their heads and wondering where the numbers in Fluke’s fanciful “study” came from, panicked liberals seized on Rush Limbaugh’s use of the word “slut” to change the subject to media misogyny. The new narrative promptly blew up in their faces with atomic force, as the legion of conservative women who endured far, far worse at the hands of liberal media figures raised their voices. The long-term damage from this is likely to be significant for the Left, which really can’t afford to make do without the venom it routinely spews against “renegade” members of certain identity groups.

The third issue, the one Democrats really want to talk about, is the notion of banning contraceptives – i.e. The Argument Absolutely No One Is Making. Even presidential candidate Rick Santorum has loudly and repeatedly stated he has no intention of doing any such thing, although he wants to discuss the negative social effects of widespread birth control. As Santorum noted with devastating effect, liberals incorrectly assume that everyone else wants to outlaw everything they criticize.

The “ban contraceptives” talking point was conjured from thin air by Democrats, and since no one is actually making the demands they have declared themselves passionately opposed to, it’s not getting them very far. They would do roughly as well by declaring their fervent opposition to eating puppies.

Women are not a panicky herd that automatically runs in the desired direction at the sound of loud, meaningless noises. Even the Democrats’ immense advantage in media power could only bring the contraception straw man to life for a couple of days at best. There are too many real problems in Barack Obama’s America for both men and women to worry about.

12 point drop in a liberal bias network's poll in womens support since Birth Control became a major issue :wink:

I guess when a Obama/MSM cultist tells Oldtimer something he BELIEVES even when the liberal facts don't back up the CULTIST claims. :wink: :lol:
