Is it a surprise that Money Mitt Romney isn’t getting any love from the females?
Female voters in swing states see Romney "out of step" on issues when it comes to women’s health.
According to a new poll commissioned by Planned Parenthood's advocacy arm, Romney is on the wrong end of a steep gender gap, largely because of his opposition to abortion rights and his positions on issues such as contraception.
As reported by the Hill:
By a 20-point margin, women surveyed in the Planned Parenthood Action Fund poll said Romney is "out of step" on women's issues. That number increased as women heard "specific information about Romney's on-the-record statements about women's preventive and reproductive health," the Hart polling memo says.
After hearing those descriptions, 64 percent of respondents said Romney is out of step. President Obama had a 13-point advantage over Romney, which grew to 22 points after women heard a description of Romney's positions. “It comes as no surprise that the more women learn about Mitt Romney and Paul Ryan’s record and positions on women’s health, the more appalled they are. Politics has no place in a woman’s personal medical decisions. Women voters believe that, and in November their votes will reflect it,” said Cecile Richards, president of the Planned Parenthood Action Fund.
With the recent views expressed by extremely conservative Republicans in the last few days as the conversation turns to women’s issues, it’s no surprise women aren’t in favor of Romney.
