  •  If it's not easy to flip people back (0+ / 0-)

    Then explain the wildly swinging gender gap. Some polls have it as no gap, some have a large gap in our favor.

    If people can't change their minds again and again, then the only rational answer is those polls are wrong at some point.

    We know from history that Democrats enjoy a sizeable gender gap in women voters.

    So which outcome do you subscribe to:

    1. Democrats saw their gender gap close to zero at the precise time that Republicans went on the offensive against every issue traditionally supported by female voters

    2. A large bloc of female voters can't make up their minds (negating your theory that voters don't easily flip -- under this theory, this bloc has gone back and forth at least three times now)

    3. The polls are shit. The polls that are shit, BTW, are the ones that show no gender gap (otherwise point 1 is the outcome) and therefore Romney isn't as close as some have made him out to be.

    Pick one.
