Colorado poll shows women tuning out Democrats’ ‘war on women’ strategy – Washington Times

DENVER — The Democrats’ “war on women” strategy may resonate with liberals, but it’s losing ground with crucial female swing voters in Colorado, said a poll released this week.

A whopping 77 percent of women voters surveyed agree that they “clearly see through the so-called Democrat ‘War on Women’ messaging strategy,” according to Magellan Strategies in Louisville, Colo.

The poll also found that 67 percent of those surveyed “do not fear a government bureaucrat taking birth control away from them, but what they fear are politicians using the issue of ‘access to birth control’ as a political tactic to scare them into voting a certain way.’”

The survey was conducted on behalf of the right-leaning Colorado Women’s Alliance, but those polled weren’t dedicated Republicans. The June 3-4 poll contacted 500 women identified as registered independents, Republican-leaning independents, and “soft” Republican voters.

CWA Executive Director Debbie Brown said the poll asked women “what is on their hearts and minds, and it is not women’s reproductive rights.”

“Women — working women, single moms, college students, grandmothers — are worried about the rising cost of living and the tremendous uncertainty in the job market,” said Ms. Brown in a statement. “Women are not single-issue voters. What real women want to talk about is the issues that touch their lives.”
