Gender Gap

The 20 point gender gap in the 2012 presidential election is the largest Gallup has measured in a presidential election since it began compiling the vote by major subgroups in 1952.

It's almost as if the majority of women are tired of birth control and reproductive rights being treated as fringe issues when the ability to plan for and space your family is directly correlated with economic opportunity and mobility.

I'm guessing there's also a good number of women who are tired of the lip service paid by politicians to the idea that "motherhood is the most important job in the world" with zero actions or policies that actually support that idea.
