Revealing Politics.com sent a cameraman out to meet women voters at Obama’s Colorado rally Wednesday, where he was introduced by the country’s most famous adult woman incapable of making a run to the CVS, Sandra Fluke.
President Obama told women at the rally that Mitt Romney “want(s) to take us back to the policies more suited to the 1950s than the 21st century.” The president’s advantage among women is quite a bit smaller in swing-state Colorado than nationally, and I think the campaign overestimates Fluke’s power as a symbol of modern womanhood to independent Western women. Not exactly the pioneer spirit, Fluke’s.
