    Default Polls show Rick Santorum most popular GOP candidate amongst women

    http://www.politico.com/news/stories/0312/74612.html

    In 2012, Santorumís strength with women voters was first demonstrated in Iowa, and the trend continued through Southern states. Exit polls show he won among women in Iowa, Oklahoma, Tennessee, Alabama, Mississippi and Louisiana. Even in states where he didnít win the primary, Santorum performed well among women: In Ohio, for example, where Mitt Romney won the popular vote, Santorum still won married women by 4 points.

    And in a Washington Post/ABC poll out last week, Santorum had the highest favorability rating among women of the GOP field: 66 percent of women viewed him favorably, compared with 18 percent who didnít.

    The former Pennsylvania senatorís favorability rating among women has only grown in 2012, as Santorum has become more well-known: since the start of January, his favorability among women has spiked 22 points and his unfavorables have dropped 4 points.

    The gender gap extends to feelings on whether Santorum should stay in the race: in a CNN/ORC poll released Tuesday, more than two-thirds of Republican women surveyed said Santorum should continue his presidential bid, compared with just 51 percent of men who agreed.
    Well well well, let's retire the "war on women" phrase now, shall we? Unless you are saying that you know better than women do about what's best for them...

    Hmm. Let's see. Romney, moneybag hellbent on destroying America or Rick, a man who loves Jesus. Not a hard choice really.

    This poll means nothing and OPs headline is misleading. The poll is not a popularity poll. This poll is the equivalent of high school girls standing around and saying what boys they like and and which ones they don't (and yes, its multiple choice). Its not asking anybody who they would vote for.

    It's so simple Watson. Middle class is the backbone of American. Anyone who weakens, is a foe. Look up glorious career of Romney as a "bidnessman." They did hostile takeovers, fired employees, moved jobs to China. What a swell material for a president! President of Somali that is.

    CPL, please read his history, he laid off people and hired people. It is called running a buisness. There is no truth to running jobs of to China. Please try to be honest when posting.

    Not even flaming gay men are as obsessed with nor do they think about their own ****** activities as much as Santorum thinks about that stuff. The loud screamers are usually insanely closeted.

    Did you even read it? They gutted companies for profit. I'd rather have Bush than that guy. At least Bush bombed other countries. Romney is a financial terrorist. There, I said it.

    Sounds like people are astonished that everybody doesn't think like the MSM is telling us we should.

    You might want to read the whole story numbskull instead of editing what you want to read.

    In 1990, Romney was asked to return to Bain & Company, which was facing financial collapse.[56] He was announced as its new CEO in January 1991[68][69] (but drew only a symbolic salary of one dollar).[56] Romney managed an effort to restructure the firm's employee stock-ownership plan, real-estate deals and bank loans, while rallying the firm's thousand employees, imposing a new governing structure that included Bain and the other founding partners giving up control, and increasing fiscal transparency.[46][50][56] Within about a year, he had led Bain & Company through a turnaround and returned the firm to profitability without further layoffs or partner defections.[50] He turned Bain & Company over to new leadership and returned to Bain Capital in December 1992
