Women Falling for Romney; Men Falling for Obama

by Keith Koffler on October 25, 2012, 7:30 am

Um, let me explain that.

A new poll by the Associated Press shows Mitt Romney erasing President Obama’s lead among women. Romney has pulled even with Obama among women after previously trailing by 16 points. At the same time though, Obama has nearly eliminated Romney’s advantage among men.

The result is a two point Romney lead, 49-47 percent, in the survey of likely voters.

Thanks Keith but all of these polls are B.S. This election is going to be a blow out for the Republicans….won’t be close. If you’ll remember that the Republicans won over 600 state seats in 2010. As a result, they were able to correct 100 years of Gerrymandering perpetrated by the Democrats. The Republicans did not play nice during the redistricting process. I’m going to go out on a limb and predict a 70-100 Electoral College advantage for Gov Romney; Republicans take the Senate and gain seats in the House. It’s the media keeping this election seeming to be close….they have to keep us watching to make money, right?

Totally agree on the poll numbers being close to keep the electorate interested in the campaign, sell ads, bring in donations, bump ratings, etc. etc.

Heard this morning that Colin Powell endorsed Obama again. Why? Why? Why?

Depending on who the males were that were polled, that really does not surprise me. Given the state of the male mentality in many segments of American society, the idea of a nanny state would be optimum for these males.

To not have to take responsibility for where their “seed” lands, and allow the state to raise up their progeny would be ideal for many men. I have know a lot of guys over the years that looked at abortion as birth control, and were willing to pay the cost of an abortion vs. paying the cost of raising a child.

Add to that the rising number of young males that are diagnosis early on with ADD/ADHD, and then get SSD at the age of 10 or 11, only to stay on it for the rest of their lives, you have a break down in what was once considered the most vital of all things American. The work ethic.

Obama and the left are offering a lifetime of free ride, and irresponsibility to many young men, and these young men, many of whom have never had a viable male role model in their lives, are grabbing it. It doesn’t matter if they are black, white, yellow, brown, red or whatever, people, like water, will take the path of least resistance. If allowed to stay home, plant “seed” wherever they want and can without the resulting responsibility, feed at the government trough, and spend their time with their buddies many guys will do just that. It is the failure of parents to kick these guys in the ass, and get them moving at an early age.

I started working at 13, busing tables at a local restaurant in Chicago for 65 cents and hour. In the nearly 40 years that I worked, there was only one year where I did not pay into payroll taxes in one form or another, and that was when I 15.

Too many men, or rather just males – can’t really call them men, today have been able to shirk the responsibilities of life in favor of X-Boxes and government largess. I guess that is why we have as many trolls on the internet as we do, still living in their parent’s basement, and attacking those that support self-sufficiency.

My husband has been saying for years that fathers aren’t needed by women anymore; the government provides what used to be a father’s responsibility.

Took a quick look at the link but gtg. What is the D+ and gender/ age breakdown? Was this national or regionally weighted? The shift for women is good. Not sure the shift in men is depending on the splits. I’m guessing this is a D+ /F+?

We are at the point now where Jackson Jr. and Obama are basically the same story as they weave and honk through heavy traffic on their way to a state of out of control. Entirely forseeable in both cases. They both need rest and serious interventions from people that care about them as people and not meal tickets.

If true they’re not really men as we once knew them to be.

started with soccer, then all those soy products, then body shaving. Hormones in the food and milk. They should redo Red Dawn but this time have all the old geezers with body hair saving the day while the young metrosexuals are all prostituted out to the invading army

See, all that soy is turning the men into women and women into warrior babes. Men shave their body hair too. All started with soccer, I knew that was going to ruin the country.

Polls, polls, polls. Gallup, Rasmussen, PPP, Pew, they’re all saying the same thing. +2 Romney. What they don’t tell us is how heavy the Democrat oversampling is in the areas they’re polling. This is going to be a blowout.

I was informed by people who seem to know this that MrRomney is the man that every woman wanted to marry; tall, handsome, successful, religious, caring, virtuous, and would make Mom and Dad delerious with joy.

As for the men, I have to agree with my fellow commenters on the sad state of manhood today.
