Women voters key in Presidential Election

Posted: Updated:

It's women who could decide the presidential election. Right now the race is very close and both sides are reaching out to women for one very good reason; because women vote more than men.

"Women could decide this election. Women are very important in this election," said Sherri Greenberg, the Director of Center for Politics and Governance at U.T. Austin.

Greenberg says if women do decide the election then Republicans have some ground they need to make up fast.

"Obama has and continues to have a distinct advantage with women voters," said Greenberg.

Greenberg says that reason could be because of President Obama's position on women's health issues.

"The choice issue and reproductive rights. Some of those women are democrats, some are independents and some frankly are republicans," Greenberg said.
