Gender Gap Grows: Women Put Obama Over the Top

The gender gap was 12 points in 2008. In 2012 the gender gap increased to 18 points!   Clearly, with women and minorities, the GOP guys are on the wrong side of history:
According to CNN's exit polls, 55 percent of women voted for Obama, while only 44 percent voted for Mitt Romney. Men preferred Romney by a margin of 52 to 45 percent, and women made up about 54 percent of the electorate. In total, the gender gap on Tuesday added up to 18 percent -- a significantly wider margin than the 12-point gender gap in the 2008 election.
