I want to start with this Tug of war over certain groups of voters first of all.
You know I hear the mainstream media and I'm not gonna pretend like we're not part of it.
But for the purposes of this conversation this morning I want to talk about it as the other.
Up talking about the war on women sue Kelly is there a war on women.
-- I think there's been a war on women for a long time but is a bipartisan war.
Certainly doesn't belong on fighting over today I want us the whole -- I think you know according -- -- what are they know they get really don't.
They don't want us in business and they really don't want us in -- it's a -- a woman on Capitol Hill.
That you it's very very difficult what Nancy Pelosi achieved is remarkable.
That kind considering the fact that no woman has ever been speaker of the house in the entire history of the United States and right now.
Women are not even if they're not even hateful.
I've represented representation.
In the of the United States that's that's hard women need to get in they need to get involved and they need to run for that is the worse.
You Sunnis parties going after women as voters you see -- weakness for the GOP.
I don't think it's any more of a weakness for the GOP candidates for the Democrat party -- an amber.
There was a congressman named Pat Schroeder.
Who was in office for 26.
Years during that forty years that -- for Democrats controlled totally controlled the House of Representatives.
The US house of -- representatives had no woman who was the chairman of any committee.
Even Pat Schroeder who was in for 26 years never got a full committee but when the Republicans took over in 1995.
There was I -- -- immediately appointed Jan -- there were a Republican was a woman appointed to the full chairmanship of a committee.
-- -- -- -- How do you attract women voters.
I think you have to speak to them -- speak to -- the messages that are gonna drive them to the polls -- we'll say the economy would drop them to the polls but also.
They watch the rhetoric that happens in the day to day news maybe not the mainstream media but watching what's happening in state after state.
Whether -- did the funding of Planned Parenthood or whether it's pay equity laws that certain.
Mitt Romney said he may not would have voted far.
With the Lilly Ledbetter act that equalize -- Paper men and women.
-- kind of protects you wanna whistle -- you're female trying to reach stopping your company like your other guest was talking about in there is a glass ceiling if you've got to expose them.
That you get compensation.
That don't -- The party and the politician that speaks directly to them not about in all due respect to maybe who did or did not get a chairmanship of a committee but whose gonna help them feed their family.
Who's gonna reducing gas prices who's gonna make sure that they can keep their job and also is gonna help reduce their their daycare costs.
-- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- Investor Ronnie starts right -- -- words on the with a nuclear company apple would just came out.
Romney is strong on economy and jobs he's he's strong on good gas out of gas prices season things that women really care about.
I -- read from what you're talking about to our viewers know there's a new quinnipiac poll that's out Politico dot com writing about this in detail this morning.
Obama and Mitt Romney.
Closest votes in the polls nationally -- projected voters but also very close on the issues with Romney scene is better is there's just said on the economy.
Creating jobs gas prices and better on immigration.
Interesting -- those are three of the four that you mention the perhaps.
So literally and I would also say that if you look deeper into that poll and in that same exact article.
It shows to where women are supporting the president over Romney over 9% and you're right -- gas prices they are favoring Romney over the president.
So there is a little bit of a disconnect there because the the female vote is supporting the president in that exact poll.
Even though the gas prices -- There's over 9% yeah -- all of this and you said it so well see you and I think chuck you'll agree.
There is no one particular party that can count on the female -- Right right.
I mean this does not come down to a partisan debate -- millions Nevada -- popular and Romney could be popular but when it comes right down cigarette.
What is this guy gonna do -- candidate.
Got to do for those issues that -- brought up as the president does well overall with the idea of women's issues but when it comes to the actual pocket book he does not.
-- I think women are up for grabs.
I think shocked I just indelibly with me actually -- up just perfect -- -- -- looks like that as.
But I honestly.
I think women women are going to split up in variously interesting ways until they finally walked into the voting Booth and then they make their choice so I think -- can probably agree with me.
There's a lot of work that both candidates are going to have to do.
It's going to come down to a few states like it does every year.
And the women vote there which has moved has been pretty central theme of the Republicans I mean other Democrats over the years has now become that swing vote in the middle.
So where we want -- Barack Obama wore one the women vote overwhelmingly -- way.
The Republicans barely one -- one vote in twenty cancel it does show that they move back and forth but in these key states like Ohio and for -- -- -- Michigan Wisconsin.
These working women these these women who are raising children.
Who have to maintain a job.
Are going to be listening to what's gonna best impact -- lives they're gonna judge whether has this Obama administration done.
What I think is a good job or has he not and do we really believe in Mitt Romney in as a positions any talk about.
True to his heart both candidates are gonna workers streaming -- try to make their case -- you know.
