Ouch: Wendy Davis is losing women by double-digits

Davis trails her opponent, Texas Attorney General Greg Abbott, by a whopping 12 points among likely female voters, according to a new NYT/CBS/YouGov poll.

Forty-nine percent of women surveyed preferred Abbott, compared to 37 percent for Davis.

Of course, one should keep an open mind about this poll, considering the difference between the number of Democratic women and Republican women polled was — unsurprisingly — 12 points. This poll, conducted between Oct. 16 and Oct. 23, is also wildly different from past polls by the same groups, which showed a much closer divide among women.
