Poll: “Hillary Has 2 To 1 Lead Among Women”

From the DNC’s Washington Post:

Clinton Owes Lead in Poll To Support From Women

By Anne E. Kornblut and Matthew Mosk

The consistent lead that Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton of New York has maintained over Sen. Barack Obama of Illinois and others in the race for the 2008 Democratic presidential nomination is due largely to one factor: her support from women.

In the most recent Washington Post-ABC News poll, Clinton led Obama by a 2 to 1 margin among female voters. Her 15-point lead in the poll is entirely attributable to that margin. Clinton drew support from 51 percent of the women surveyed, compared with 24 percent who said they supported Obama and 11 percent who said they backed former senator John Edwards of North Carolina.

Clinton is drawing especially strong support from lower-income, lesser-educated women — voters her campaign strategists describe as “women with needs.” Obama, by contrast, is faring better among highly educated women, who his campaign says are interested in elevating the political discourse

Maybe giving women the vote was a mistake after all.
