A recently released Washington Post-ABC news poll shows Hillary Clinton leading Barak Obama among women by a margin of 2 to 1.
In the May 29 – June 1 poll, Hillary received support from 51% of the women surveyed, as compared to 24% for Obama and 11% for John Edwards. The poll also confirmed what Hillary’s campaign has previously noted: most of her support comes from lower-income, less educated women.
According to the Post story, “Clinton is drawing especially strong support from lower-income, lesser-educated women — voters her campaign strategists describe as ‘women with needs.’ Obama, by contrast, is faring better among highly educated women, who his campaign says are interested in elevating the political discourse.”
