Poll: Women May Stay Home On Election Day

A recent New York Times/CBS News poll finds a striking gender gap which suggests that angry men will likely vote Republican. And, while despairing women are more inclined to vote Democratic, we may stay home this year:

Men say they are going to vote for the Republican candidate rather than the Democratic candidate in their district by a margin of 45 percent to 32 percent. The numbers are nearly reversed for women with 36 percent saying they will vote Republican and 43 percent saying they will vote Democratic.
. . Even though women are still more likely to vote Democratic, the poll suggests they may stay home this year.
