October 22, 2012 - Women Put Obama Up 5 Points In Ohio, Quinnipiac University/CBS News Poll Finds Democrat Sherrod Brown Up 9 Points In Senate Race

Word format

Riding a wave of strong support among women, President Barack Obama holds a 50 - 45 percent lead over Republican Gov. Mitt Romney among likely voters in the crucial swing state of Ohio, according to a Quinnipiac University/CBS News poll released today, half the 53 - 43 percent margin he held when Quinnipiac/CBS News/the New York Times surveyed Buckeye likely voters September 26.

This latest Quinnipiac/CBS survey shows a wide gender gap as President Obama leads 55 - 40 percent among women while Gov. Romney leads 51 - 44 percent among men. Whites back the Republican 51 - 44 percent while blacks go Democratic 91 - 5 percent. Voters with college degrees are divided with 49 percent for Romney and 47 percent for Obama. Voters without degrees back Obama 52 - 43 percent.

Support shifts dramatically with income as voters making less than $30,000 per year go Democratic 60 - 34 percent while voters making more than $100,000 go Republican 53 - 45 percent.

Independent voters back Romney 49 - 42 percent.

The first bit, about people earning under $30k, I can understand, even if I think it's wrongheaded, but the second bit, about people earning more than $100k, is unfathomable.  The most I can chalk it up to is a false sense of white progressive guilt.
