As you know one of the story lines being pushed during his presidential race is this so called war on women waged by Republicans.
That's the charge and some Democrats but a new poll.
-- president Obama's favorability among women dropping he's at 46%.
Back in April he was up around 57%.
My next two guests are Republican governors Nikki Haley -- a South Carolina Mary Fallon of Oklahoma ladies well.
Come here and good morning to both the -- In the morning get it -- -- you got a guy and he was well governor Haley -- is this storyline on women working for Democrats.
-- -- -- -- -- -- Really not working I think the Democrats think that they say Republicans -- women enough that when normal start to believe that but what they don't understand it.
Women are so much smarter than that the fact that.
Women think about a lot of things not only do they think about contraception they think about their family they think about the debt.
They think about how averaging -- -- gone down national debt has gone up.
And now we've watched the global competitiveness of our country not for the fourth here in a -- women -- very results -- and and what you're gonna say is on Election Day they're gonna vote for their families and they're gonna vote for this country.
Governor Fallon -- if you read the hall last night before the networks came on last night.
There are many speeches about 3040 minutes worth.
About pro choice about abortion rights.
Democrat and Sandra Fluke in fact speaks tonight around -- 9 o'clock hour Democrats must feel that they're making inroads on this -- it's so much attention.
Do you believe they are.
Now I don't think they -- I think they're not talking about the issues that are very important to.
Mothers do women in general you know -- diet that my husband have six children between the two of us were concerned about.
Well our children be able to find a job when they get out of college.
Well our children be left with mountains of debt from college loans well they'd be left with mountains of Dan Brown -- -- here.
It's going to be huge -- on our national economy at sixteen trillion dollars a -- ahead.
In our economy -- 23 million Americans that are unemployed.
You know the fact of the matter is when -- actually suffering under this president -- seen the number of women that are on food stamps go out to record highs.
Save the average median household -- him go down by 4000 dollars that's not good news for American families and American families have not thrive under this president.
Governor Haley back to that hole number I mentioned.
Why do you believe explains why the president would drop ball.
On that -- I think past four -- five months what what what's happening out there that would reflect that you believe.
I think that the American public is now getting to the point where they're asking are we better off than we were four years ago.
And what they're saying it's their wallets are better they all know someone that's lost -- job.
They -- debt that their children -- gonna have to pay for they wonder if their children are gonna have to move back and let them because they can't find a job.
All of these -- That is affected them they're now looking back and saying are we better than we were four years ago and they answers very clear we're not -- and when you have a president.
That grades himself and says city gets inning complete.
As a mom I know when my children if they come home of an incomplete it basically means they fail.
And I think women are gonna look at the whole picture they're gonna pay attention I think you're gonna continue to see those numbers move.
When there's an -- they're strong they're Smart and they think a lot more than just want it.
Into the same -- we've gotten them.
So I have left.
What do struggling women and mothers once or knee deep here.
Is -- and notre and ordered to make them feel just a little bit better that things really -- the right way real soon.
As you know the anxiety levels of -- They are super high you know women are more concerned about the kitchen table issues at -- -- able to take care of their families about.
Their husbands or themselves having a job being able to -- their -- in the way that they need to.
And I'm worried about my child.
And what kind of future they gonna have -- in America that has so much debt and -- -- it.
Big government control telling them how they can live their lives are having cannot live their lives -- seconds.
Things I think that you'll find that women are concerned about.

Of course now I spend on -- -- that it is challenging for families these days.
