The Democrats have desperately employed their old War on Women tactics but people in Colorado are saying it’s falling flat. And now FiveThirtyEight is reporting a troubling trend for Democrats. Every day we are talking to women about the issues we all care about – empowering women at work and at home, creating good paying jobs, building the economy, increasing workplace flexibility, addressing workplace discrimination and modernizing job training. On the other hand, President Obama and the Democrats have spent all of their time pointing fingers at others and pushing policies that have made life more difficult for women instead of working toward solutions. Voters are now turning on the Democrats. Republicans are up on the generic ballot, we are up 16 points with married women, 15 points with white women, and 23 points with married white women. We hope the Democrats use this as an opportunity to join us in working toward solutions instead of what we normally see from them which is a misleading war on women that doesn’t help move our country forward.
The Numbers according to the last GW Battleground and NBC News/Wall Street Journal polls:
- Subgroups of women that Republicans are winning with on the generic ballot include married women, white women, and married white women.
- Single white women, suburban women, and older women are all within two points on the ballot.
- On the generic ballot in the Battleground survey, Republicans lead by fifteen points among white women. In the NBC/WSJ survey, the lead is eight points.
There is no question the GOP needs to improve its standing among minority women. But those are hardly the numbers indicating that the GOP has a problem with all women. The overall deficit among women in the two polls is minus six and minus eight points respectively.
