More Data on the Women's Vote

We've been flooded with requests for data on the women's vote since Susan Page of USA Today reported on women's shift toward Obama over Romney in the latest round of USA Today/Gallup swing-states polling.

Reporting on Obama's 51% to 42% lead over Republican front-runner Mitt Romney among registered voters in 12 key battleground states, Page revealed, "The biggest change came among women under 50. In mid-February, just under half of those voters supported Obama. Now more than six in 10 do while Romney's support among them has dropped by 14 points, to 30%."

Here are the raw numbers our readers have been asking for, from our USA Today/Gallup polling conducted in late March:

Additionally, here is the trend data for each of the women's groups:

Gallup Editor-in-Chief Frank Newport and USA Today Washington Bureau Chief Susan Page discuss possible causes and implications of these data in this week's Election Matters.

Newport will also post more analysis on the women's vote in his blog "Polling Matters" later this week.

Additionally, you can track how the Republican candidates are doing by gender and among key subgroups and much more on our Election 2012 page.
