WaPo/ABC poll: Obama’s favorable rating now underwater — including with women

posted at 8:50 pm on September 4, 2012 by Allahpundit

B-b-b-but Madeleine Albright says she can’t understand why any woman would vote for Mitt Romney.

Seriously, guys, I want to believe. I do. But … I don’t.

Yet.

Just 47 percent of registered voters in the latest ABC News/Washington Post poll see Obama favorably overall, down 7 percentage points from his recent peak in April, while 49 percent rate him unfavorably. He’s numerically underwater in this group for the first time since February.

The decline has occurred entirely among women registered voters – from 57-39 percent favorable-unfavorable in April to a numerically negative 46-50 percent now. That’s Obama’s lowest score among women voters – a focus of recent political positioning – in ABC/Post polls since he took office. Unusually, his rating among men, 50-47 percent favorable-unfavorable, is numerically better than it is among women, albeit not by a significant margin.

The result is not the only sign of the work ahead for Obama among women. In a separate ABC/Post poll last week, he led Romney among women registered voters in vote preference by just 6 points, 49-43 percent. In 2008, Obama won women by 13 points, 56-43 percent.

WaPo/ABC conducted their poll of registered voters from August 29 — halfway through the convention, before Romney spoke — through September 2. This afternoon’s CNN poll was conducted from August 31, the day after the convention ended, through September 3. Here’s what CNN got from women voters on Obama’s favorability — among likely voters:

Likely voters are more pro-Romney than registered voters are, so that +12 spread among women for O must be even bigger among CNN’s sample of registereds. I have no idea how to square that with WaPo/ABC’s finding that O’s popularity has begun to tank. My inclination is that WaPo’s an outlier since virtually every other poll shows women preferring The One to Mitt, but maybe there’s a convention effect happening here. Note the trendlines in WaPo/ABC’s data:

Mitt gained seven points and Obama lost five among women after the convention. Even in the CNN poll, where O’s numbers among women are rosy, Romney gained five points on the question of which candidate is more in touch with the problems facing women today. (He still trails Obama on that point by a wide, wide margin, though.) So maybe the GOP’s efforts to “humanize” Romney, capped by Ann’s speech on Tuesday night, did some good after all and improved his image with women. That probably moved some women’s votes towards Mitt too, although WaPo/ABC doesn’t say. Assuming the WaPo numbers tonight are correct, though, then how to explain Obama’s decline among women before the GOP convention? He was at 57 percent favorable with them back in April, but as of August 26th, he was down to just a 51/45 split. Democrats have been pounding the “war on women” crap relentlessly too. Maybe his campaign’s sharp negativity over the summer alienated some women voters? Or maybe, as I suggested earlier, the WaPo/ABC poll is a big ol’ outlier? Help me out here, guys. I really do want to believe.

This is ABC reporting these results.

Which means it can reasonably be assumed that the results are being reported “to reflect favorably about Obama” which means, the disfavorable opinions about him are likely much higher than is being reported by ABC.

My guess.

Preference cascade. It’s happening.

This illustrates, in a mild way, the reason why totalitarian regimes collapse so suddenly. Such regimes have little legitimacy, but they spend a lot of effort making sure that citizens don’t realize the extent to which their fellow-citizens dislike the regime. If the secret police and the censors are doing their job, 99% of the populace can hate the regime and be ready to revolt against it – but no revolt will occur because no one realizes that everyone else feels the same way.

This works until something breaks the spell, and the discontented realize that their feelings are widely shared, at which point the collapse of the regime may seem very sudden to outside observers – or even to the citizens themselves. Claims after the fact that many people who seemed like loyal apparatchiks really loathed the regime are often self-serving, of course. But they’re also often true…

And MOST women, young and old, all ages, don’t find the issue of pushing abortions to be appealing.

Obama (and wife) have not only pushed abortions, as has the DNC, but are ghoulishly enthralled about it, including late-term-abortion, which is a horrible act indeed, just horrible.

Few women and many a man can’t stand the idea of willfully taking the life of a viable, living human being such as exists quite clearly in “late term” (despite also existing earlier, but as to the issue of who is alive and when they are, in “late term” it’s very difficult to challenge that a late-term child in the womb is not alive or fully human).

Obama once again, just recently, reaffirmed his enthusiastic support for “all abortion, even the late term thing” which is about as flippant and awful anyone can be about vulnerable human life.

Even to the most callous, that sort of flippancy about abortion is truly repulsive. And Obama is looking quite repulsive because of that view, among many of his other views and inept acts.

This ABC poll result seems to affirm that women do, indeed, find the brainy guys appealing.

At least MORE appealing than a doofus drunk on honey beer jiving and bumbling his way into trillions of dollars of waste of other people’s money.

Ryan and Romney, both, are APPEALING as leadership BECAUSE they both have already proven they’re intelligent as to managing other people’s money and do so with ethics and values.

Women (and men) find that appealing about them both.

One thing that touches me about Romney is how he protects and respects and cares for his wife and family. Same goes for Ryan. But Romney displays a particular extra effort in all the public moments I’ve seen him with his wife in looking out for her in priority over other things occuring, meaning, in crowds, deplaning, things like that. It shows who he is on an interpersonal level.

A few other things that are complete turn-offs to a lot of women:

– the ghoulish females who are associated with Obama like Sebelius, the wife (despite the Leftmedia’s claims to the contrary), Big Sis, Pelosi, Medusa Debbie, Valerie Jarrett for pity’s sake, and so many more.

Few women find them as role models. To the contrary, they’re the people you want to get away from in a crowd or otherwise.

Lourdes on September 4, 2012 at 9:10 PM

Women are probably sensing that the Democrats are trying to appeal to them by telling them how much they condone abortions. It’s creepy. I mean it’s probably creepy even to women who could make that decision. It wouldn’t work as a pick up line: “Hey babe, I am all in favor of you getting an abortion if you want one”.

It might appeal to someone who has already had an abortion, though.

When can help you with your Eeyorism, AP but first we need to know the D/R/I split for each of the polls.

If the split is D +7, “Release the humpbot!”

If the split is R +2 (pffffttt! like that would ever happen), it’s good news but there is more work to be done.

I read the ABC adults and registered voters numbers but they, of course, didn’t include the D/R/I split.

The real outlier the MSM has been trying to force down our throats is “the D/R/I/ splits don’t mean anything”.

Interestingly enough, and not at all coincidental, they started pushing that sh1te sandwich when the first “more voters identifying themselves as Republicans” data started coming in to their polling firms.

I can’t imagine WHO it appeals to. It’s a mystery to me why men waste any time with women who are keen on abortion. It’s a gruesome practice and absurd when you think about it unless there’s some tragedy to a pregnant female on the horizon if she goes fullterm and even then, seems like it’d be the saddest decision ever to have to make to have one.

The craze by the Left about all this abortion-demanding is like some sort of offshoot of a Nazi Camp.

Lourdes on September 4, 2012 at 9:21 PM

Forget the favorability crap and focus on the basics and fundamentals about what matter to the voters and what are the metrics for winning the elections…

This election is about the Economy and not about the candidates favorability… This election is about Jobs and not about the candidates favorability… This election is about Debt/Deficit and not about the candidates favorability… This election is about the size of the government and not about the candidates favorability… This election is about Obamacare and not about the candidates favorability… This election is about Obama utterly failed record and not about the candidates favorability… It is that simple…

The most two important metrics that determine who wins the elections in 2012 are the percentage of Obama 2008 voters who would stay home in 2012 and the percentage of Obama “White Voters” from 2008 who would switch and vote for Romney in 2012…

Based on my elections prediction model if 3% of Obama 2008 voters who would stay home in 2012 and if on average 10% of Obama “White Voters” from 2008 who would switch and vote for Romney in 2012 then Romney is going to win this election… It is that simple…

Based on polling, and despite all the bias in the polls, they show without any doubt that Republicans are much more energized to vote than democrats so assuming 3% of Obama 2008 voters staying home in 2012 is a very realistic scenario and in fact it is a highly probable scenario… Also the polls are showing that Obama is losing 15% to 18% of his 2008 “White Voters” so assuming that 10% of Obama 2008 “White Voters” switching and voting for Romney in 2012 is a very realistic scenario and in fact it is a highly probable scenario…

Based on the above Romney chances of winning are higher than Obama… It is that simple…

PS: In some battleground states it would even take less than 10% of Obama “White Voters” in 2008 to switch and vote for Romney in 2012 for Romney to win these states…

I was born in ’70. Five weeks early was a lot.
I was born oxygen-deprived…which is why I’m an Aspie.

Clint Eastwood:

“…we do not have to be mental masochists and vote for somebody that we don’t really even want in office just because they seem to be nice guys or maybe not so nice guys, if you look at some of the recent ads going out there, I don’t know.”

Just sayin’.

If I was Romney right now, I’d spend all of my campaign money digging for hard evidence that Obama was screwing Vera Baker behind Mooch’s back and then give it to The National Enquirer. Obama is desperately pandering to female voters because it’s his only hope. Stories about him cheating on Mooch would effectively end his election chances.
