Obama and the Ladies

The Republican Party's alleged war on women has been a boon for President Obama and women prefer him over rival Mitt Romney. A Reuters/Ipsos poll of 25- to 45-year-olds published Aug. 9 found that childless, working women favor Obama over Romney 46 to 26 percent, compared to working mothers at 42 to 34 percent. Stay-at-home mothers prefer the president by 37 to 32 percent. (Photo: Marc Piscotty/Getty Images)
