Mitt Romney is gaining steam with female voters as President Obama continues his class warfare campaign tactics.

All Romney’s gains have come among women – up by 13 percentage points in personal popularity from last month, while Obama’s lost 7 points among women. (Views among men have been more stable.) Obama’s rating among women, 51 percent favorable, still beats Romney’s 40 percent – but again that margin is far smaller than what it was six weeks ago.

An ABC/Post poll last week found improvement for Romney in vote preferences among married women.

Why is Romney gaining with women? Two things. 1. Ann Romney 2. Focusing on economic growth and jobs.
