Women better wake up to the real Romney and the Republican Agenda. Romney has repeatedly stated throughout this campaign that he would support overturning Row VS Wade, that he will get rid of Planned Parenthood, that he supports a Person-hood amendment. Paul Ryan voted over 30 times in the House of Representatives to limit women's reproductive rights. He actually co-sponsored the legitimate rape bill with Todd Akin. He does not believe in birth control. There are at least 9 other Republican congress people who believe the same and would push to limit women's reproductive rights in numerous ways. If the Republicans win this election, your right to take control of your reproductive rights will come to a screeching halt! There is absolutely NOTHING more important to your economic life than your ability to control when you have a child, or how many children you will have. You young women do not understand what a life without access to birth control is like. Believe me, you don't want to find out. Men should also realize how important it is for your working wives to be able to control their own bodies. Do you think you could support a wife and 6 or 7 children? That's what happens without birth control. Consider yourselves warned!

I don't trust this poll. It is hard to believe that women would turn around and vote for a politician (Romney) who has proposed limiting their health care options, raising their taxes (by removing deductions for health care and education), refuses to denounce religious extremists who talk of rape as "God's will" and just generally favors squeezing the middle class in order to give additional tax cuts to the wealthy. Not that this is particularly a women's issue, but Romney is also still heavily investing in companies that are outsourcing jobs to China. Romney doesn't really care about American families. He does care about his own stock portfolio.

Even if this article is true about women shifting to vote for Romney it still doesn't mean squat in that he doesn't have the electoral college votes necessary to win. Obama has this race won!

For the last 5 months the Democrats and president Obama have been underestimating Mitt. The guy knows how to get things done and just very might win this next election. Obama has not provided a vision this time around but just attacked Romney. This strategy has not worked well for BHO.

Whenever I start to wonder why in the world any woman could vote for anyone who stands by the current GOP Platform that aspires to put woemn back in there place (that being the 1940's), I need only think of my own mother. She has been declaring proudly to anyone who will listen that, despite being a lifelong Democrat, she "can't vote for Obama because he's a Muslim". Sheesh! I guess Churchill was right when he said, "the greatest argument against democracy is a 5-minute conversation with the average voter".

On virtually every story published by AP, you've come on here and bashed the source saying that AP was a wing of the democratic party...now you believe them? Too funny...

Spousal Unit claims that women, despite what the lefties think, ARE capable of thinking above their waistline. Seems as if this poll proves it.

"If you don't have a record to run on, then you paint your opponent as someone people should run from. You make a big election about small things."...the obama re-election stategy, as voiced by the current occupier of the White House.

Women better wake up? It looks like they have, Mr. Wizard.
