Democratic Lead Among Women Evaporates
by

According to a new AP-GfK poll, the Democratic lead among women has almost completely evaporated. Turns out, a couple of years to think about their vote, and probably fewer commercials berating Republicans for their systemic oppression of American women by forcing them to purchase generic birth control pills at Wal-Mart will greatly alter the split between parties among female voters.

Women have moved in the GOP’s direction since September. In last month’s AP-GfK poll, 47 percent of female likely voters said they favored a Democratic-controlled Congress while 40 percent wanted the Republicans to capture control. In the new poll, the two parties are about even among women, 44 percent prefer the Republicans, 42 percent the Democrats.

That’s within the margin of error, and the flip came within a matter of weeks. Granted, a lot has happened in those few short weeks: a killer infectious disease reached our shores, a bizarre and pervasive new enemy emerged in the middle east, and Barack Obama golfed his 200th game. Perhaps women who were  once focused on whether their local Congressman was going to demand they put aspirin between their legs to prevent pregnancy or force them to work only for the scraps from their kitchens, are now focused on more important matters: whether their families will contract a disease that makes them bleed from their eyeballs. And Renee Zellwegger’s disappearing eyebrows. But mostly the disease that makes them bleed from their eyeballs.
