The most interesting finding of a recent NYT poll on voter preferences before the midterms: The Democrats have lost their edge with women. Though the NYT write-up of the poll doesn’t mention the change, it shows up in the accompanying graph. When asked “If the 2014 election for United States House of Representatives seats were being held today, would you vote for the Republican candidate or the Democratic candidate in your district?” women favor Democrats over Republicans by one point only, 43 to 42 percent.
This is a huge swing in a short period of time: just one month earlier, women preferred Democrats by 51 percent to 37 percent in response to that question in a similar Wall Street Journal poll. Nobody quite knows what accounts for the shift, but given that support for President Obama’s foreign policy has seen similar big drops among women, it’s likely the recent global unrest is part of the cause.

I'm a woman and your charts and graphs are silly. The only things I care about (as a woman) are: equal pay for equal work
control of my body as a reproductive vessel (meaning you don't get to choose - I do)
abolishing sex with children (meaning anyone who has sex with children gets universally punished. And further to that we prevent it.

Here are the survey results... (just the data, no fancy charts or graphs)
More telling stuff later in the survey you are using.

What surprises me, is that the democrats have been in power in the past.
They are currently in power.
Why are women still being marginalized? Why are women still being downtrodden?
It's just like the "war on poverty".
No politician actually wants to win against poverty, because that would eliminate their voting base.
