The poll finds Obama leading Romney 60 percent to 30 percent among likely voters on who is more in touch with women voters. Among registered voters, Obama leads 62 percent to 27 percent.
The poll also shows Obama leading Romney 53 percent to 39 percent among likely voters on who is more “in touch with the problems facing middle class Americans.” Among registered voters, Obama leads Romney 58 percent to 33 percent. Obama also leads on the question of who cares about “the needs of people like you” by 13 percentage points among likely voters and 20 percentage points among registered voters.
