Gender Gap Favors Ron Paul in Zogby Poll
In the Republican race, Giuliani holds big leads among both men and women, but women are much more on the fence. Among men, he leads with 33%, followed by McCain with 17%, Thompson with 12%, Romney with 9%, and 19% unsure. Among women, Giuliani wins 22%, while McCain wins 9%, Romney wins 8%, and Thompson and Ron Paul win 6% each. Fully 38% of Republican women are undecided on who they would support for their party’s nomination.

This may well be a fluke; however, I think that Paul has a chance to make an impact if he can get on more talk shows. It would really make a difference if pro-Hagelites, like Chris Matthews, would start noticing him as the only antiwar candidate on the GOP side (and pretty much the Democratic side too).

Fred Thompson is at 9% overall, with 12% men and 6% women, so it actually makes sense. The 1% Thompson in that poll is Gov Tommy Thompson, not Fred Thompson.

And they say Thompson is also at 6% among women, even though he was only 1% total. Something is screwy here; I think men may be overrepresented among "likely voters," but the disparity isn't THAT big. I think the figures for women are just for Republican women, but the general figures include everyone polled irrespective of party affiliation. So we can't estimate Republican male support from these data, and we don't know which way the gender gap swings for Paul, or if there even is one in his case.

If Paul is at three percent nationally and at six percent among women, assuming women are half the electorate, that would mean he had zero percent support among men. That clearly can't be correct.
However, I'm not surprised that he would be more popular with women because women are more likely to oppose the war than men, no matter their ideological predilections.
