The latest poll from ABC/Washington post shows what many who follow politics already knew. Mitt Romney is in trouble. Obama and Romney were in a virtual dead heat last month, but the numbers this month spell trouble for Romney in a big way. Obama has opened up a 51-44 percent lead over Romney. Wonder why? One word answer: WOMEN.
That's right, the women voters are fleeing in droves from the GOP. The "war on women" whether perceived or real is hurting Romney. The lead Obama has opened up among women is 57-38 percent. That is the largest margin to date. Adding more support to the theory that the GOP is hurting their chances with voters on women's issues, Obama leads Romney by 19 points among all adults when it comes to trust to handle "women's issues".
The bad news for Romney keeps on coming. Obama leads by 38 points in being seen as the more friendly and likable of the two, and 26 points in being seen as more inspiring. On top of all that approval of Obama's handling of the economy has improved by 6 points, and Obama leads Romney by 12 points in better understanding of the "average" American's economic problems.
On the economy Obama's numbers are improving as well. This poll indicates the fewest number of American in more than a year saying the country is on the wrong track, and almost half say their local economy is improving.
