New York Times: Polls show the Democrats losing support among female voters this year, with white women likely to switch to supporting Republicans in November elections.
"Midterm elections are often considered a referendum on the sitting president. This year, women may be more anxious to vote for change in a recession that does not seem to have an end in sight. And white female voters, who had high hopes for President Obama, may be more disillusioned and eager to leave the Democratic president and his party behind.
Gender gaps in voting are mostly a white phenomenon and the likelihood that white women will switch their partisan preference in November 2010 cannot be readily applied to black and Latina women, who are expected to be solidly behind the president’s party."
