-- want women could be the deciding factor in the GOP race -- -- Gallup poll.
-- nearly 30% of women support Mitt Romney Newt Gingrich followed close behind with 25% Rick Santorum and Ron Paul picked up fifteen.
And 9% respectively so.
How will the female vote -- shake up the Republican race let's ask DD bank -- She's a Fox News contributor and former White House aide to president George W.
Bush Fox's contributor Margaret Hoover.
And the president of the public notice Gretchen Hamel ladies thanks for being here.
Thanks for having he'd let me start here at the age old question what do women want what do Republican -- women -- -- what are they looking for and mistress.
Well not need to -- And I think that you must have watched the little rascals music syndicate to have -- he man woman haters club.
I think -- number -- you know he has -- -- all these things that have been negative and remember and the a debate he was very disrespectful to Michelle Bachmann it started with that and then you know the would be marriages in the mister -- A lot of people that would say it out loud but that -- -- what you say.
That however in South Carolina Margaret he won.
They women's voting.
I think the closest one to a wasn't Mitt Romney at 30% so obviously South Carolina women feel differently someone like does someone -- -- he gave women -- about an eyelash.
And New Hampshire and Florida I came in disabling of her Mitt Romney -- in Nevada last night so clearly he is I think the important thing as.
Don't do identity politics nearly as well as the -- -- and -- I like to say for GOP women.
All issues are women's issues women want jobs we want the economy to come back we want all the same things that -- -- And maybe we have -- -- spent on them I don't think it was just women are gonna make a difference at the polls but but.
No candidate needs to come out.
And and happily and identity politics specific message for women because we want the same things -- you don't want them pandering to women in other expect to bring UN.
And and ask you would it help that Newt Gingrich -- women if you were to use his wife Callista more on the stump.
You know I think it could help they would show a different cited him right now he comes off very.
You -- -- wrap around the edges and to bring her out to let her talk on his behalf to women I did think that -- how -- I see you shaking your head.
Let me remember in the debate when he said well what do you think about your wife do you think she'd be a bit because at First Lady and it -- says.
Why don't think you want to think that -- any other I mean how are clueless that you know and now -- it's so wonderful to include.
And Romney and make her big -- you know the -- women were Smart and I think that.
There when he -- have time to kind of give what you can dissolve about which is why he lost miserably.
In Florida and featured an Romney -- -- you know and let's just stands there and watch it does.
-- new credit though he did say.
A woman she's very divided about art she played the French car and he said to give her -- sort of I don't think you know what what's happened is the Rodney super pac has been so -- back Dan.
And channeling this narrative that Newt's baggage which is very clearly that was a politics or.
Is to a -- -- that has and everybody knows Nicholas that he would have to see her parents.
-- -- understand right.
I think that narrative is RD there's I think he he probably can't is -- in the same way that Enron and that's probably can't now that's the problem -- India women.
Agree with that idea.
What does agreement that had I think you know Al white people believe -- -- instant -- and believe in forgiveness and I think to get her out there and for her to talk about his policies and -- need that she knows in the knew that -- -- to care about summoning every instinct.
What's so different I didn't in this -- that we saw last night the press conference which could be very appealing -- Women split equally and so many of these states so we now that they don't hold that affair against them.
You know by large margins.
-- had yet.
They did I'm sorry it's you know she did didn't they an idea why they went in nobody has not -- -- -- and it was an abuse of power need this lets his staffers and abused power -- he was crying Bill Clinton at the same time from doing the same thing so there's a problem with patents at.
I'm -- and you'll probably aren't taking into consideration and that the majority of these women are going to be paying close enough attention to know that -- Actually a lot of Havoc and well.
And I'm gonna -- -- -- -- -- not women seventy million.
Women who voted in 2008 are women as engaged this time around women will be engaged and I'm so glad you mentioned the general election because the general election women -- is entirely different from the GOP women about.
And you know what.
We're looking at Wal-Mart moms we're looking at women.
