Schneider: Obama makes gains with women

(CNN) – Why did Barack Obama do so much better among white women in Indiana? He won two out of five, after winning fewer than a third of that group in Ohio and Pennsylvania.

Could it be that Hillary Clinton’s increasingly tough persona – the ‘Annie Oakley’ factor, as Barack Obama dubbed it – is costing her among the women voters who have been her base throughout the primary season?

    All the woman in my circle voted for him.... I don't know why the media has broken it down the way they have.... Obama has always had the support of the young, old, men, woman, black ,white.... and even some republicans who are fed up. The media plays games

    Amy Iowa – you wouldn't know intelligence if it hit you in the face. You are a very hateful person.

    RealDem... Amy Iowa rocks. More importantly, she's correct.

    Old school politics are a thing of the past.

    Yes we can! Yes we DID!!!

    If Hillary is such a down home mid-west girl as she claims then why is she a senator from New York? Must be strictly politics.

    I am so totally tired of the women vote this way ... the blacks vote that ... women do not automatically vote for Hillary as she is a woman. Talk about stereotyping. Maybe possibly and hopefully people vote for the best candidate.

    Oh and I don't trust Hillary but I trust Obama less. He showed us the last few months what he possibly is.

    Congrats to Rush for changing the tide. Even though a few people heeded your call, apparently it was enough.
