Two years of “war on women” rhetoric gets the Democrats…
Women surveyed said they disapprove of Obama by a 50 percent to 44 percent margin — nearing an all-time low in the poll. It’s almost the reverse of the 55 percent to 44 percent breakdown for Obama among female voters in 2012, according to exit polls.
His approval rating among women has slipped four percentage points from a year ago and 16 points since his second inaugural in January 2013, when his approval was 60 percent among the group.
I’d like to think it’s because women felt the Democrats were patronizing them, and that they’re smarter than that.
I said I’d like to think it.
Oh, yeah – and yoots are unamused:
Among younger voting-age Americans, Obama’s approval rating stood at 43 percent. That marked an 11-point drop since June among those 18 to 29 years old. Voters younger than 30 supported Obama by 60 percent to 37 percent in 2012.
I’m not one of those who thinks that the whole world needs to turn on the wishes of the under-thirty set; most of them will be changing their minds, one way or another, between 25 and 35 anyway.
