with Women Going into Final Stretch
The Washington Times
With a new poll showing his lead among women voters is gone, a raspy President Obama rallied supporters in this battleground state Thursday morning after a red-eye flight from Nevada, warning voters that Republican Mitt Romney would repeal the health-care benefits of “Obamacare.”
“As we saw again this week, I don’t think any politician in Washington, most of whom are men, should be making health care decisions for women,” Mr. Obama told supporters...
As Mr. Obama arrived in Florida, he was greeted with a startling new poll showing that his advantage with women voters has evaporated. The AP/GfK survey found that Mr. Romney is now tied with the president among female voters; a month ago, Mr. Obama held a 16-point advantage with women.
Obama aides discredited the poll, as they have other surveys this month whose results weren’t to their liking. One aide called the AP poll “wrong.”
The president is in the midst of a two-day, six-state blitz of swing states that will also take him to Richmond, VA, and Cleveland, OH. His voice is growing hoarse from the continuous campaigning as he tries to fend off the surging challenge by Mr. Romney. Mr. Obama flew to Florida overnight aboard Air Force One after a late-night rally Wednesday in Las Vegas.
The president showed signs of being a bit punchy after his all-nighter. Upon landing in Florida, he stopped at a Krispy Kreme doughnut shop and struck up a conversation with a customer, who told the president he is a math teacher. Mr. Obama turned to reporters and said of the man, “He is buying doughnut for his kids. That whole math and doughnut connection is the key to school reform because I know his kids are doing great”...
It was Mr. Obama’s 14th trip this year to Florida, where early voting begins on Saturday. In 2008 in Hillsborough County, site of the president’s rally, 53 percent of the ballots were cast in early voting.
Mr. Obama will also stop in Chicago Thursday to cast an early vote, the first sitting president to do so.

Editor's Note: Again, when a candidate has "Big Mo" going into the last two weeks, it is hard to turn back that motion. Mr. Romney, it can be argued, has "Big Mo."
