So, based on the results of a Mercyhurst University poll, what kind of an impact could this have on the 2012 Presidential Election?
Barack Obama or Mitt Romney, that's one of the questions the Mercyhurst Center for Applied Politics asked in a poll conducted in January on the woman vote in Pennsylvania.
"In spite of the fact that a majority of women felt that the nation as a whole and the economy in particular was on the wrong track, most women in Pennsylvania were still supporting Barack Obama," said Dr. Joe Morris, Director of Mercyhurst Center for Applied Politics.
In fact, in this poll, Barack Obama led Mitt Romney in an imaginary 2012 election by about 8% points.
When asked in the poll to give the Obama administration a grade, more women gave the President a "B" than any other letter grade.
On average, women gave him a "C."
Dr. Morris says this shows, "while women aren't thrilled with Barack Obama's performance as president, they find it satisfactory."
In the 2008 Presidential election, women accounted for 54% of all the votes, while men accounted for only 46% of the vote.
In the Mercyhurst poll, women were asked to chose a single word to describe Mitt Romney,
They came up with words like rich, arrogant, businessman and Mormon.
When they were asked to use a single word to describe Barack Obama, women used words like disappointment and inexperienced, but also, honest, trying and intelligent.
So, what do these findings suggest? What can we expect from women this election season?
"While women today are very supportive of Barack Obama when compared to Mitt Romney, Mitt Romney's story remains to be written. Women consistently found it easy to come up with words to describe Barack Obama, but it was more difficult for them to describe Mitt Romney," added Morris.
