    ANY polls, regardless of partisan split, that don't show a decided advantage for Obama with women?

    If so, please let me know.  Thanks in advance.

    •  The advantage has been shrinking (0+ / 0-)

      but only on polls that have a believable partisan split to begin with.  this poll is an outlier.  (or, maybe I should say an out and out liar.. ha!)

      •  Cite an example or two, please. (0+ / 0-)

        Obama's advantage with women in 2008 was 12 points, while exit polls showed a D+7 total split, so Obama's edge with women obviously (and significantly) exceeded expectations based only on partisan considerations.

        So which specific polls are showing a shrinking advantage?  I'm interested in researching their methodologies.
