It's going to take a lot of work to undo what they have done.
AmPat is right. Obama will get about 47% of the vote. But I am afraid if they get away with this scare tactic (Republicans are going to take away your birth control stuff!) they will gather the women vote again.
Women usually vote Democratic. They did last time, 56% to 43%, and young voters went that way 66 to 32. But that was back when Obama was cool and hip. He is no longer quite as cool and hip. We can do real damage to him if we speak out every time we get a chance. Rip into him good and perhaps we can discourage some of these voters. But the best we can hope for, I think, is that they will stay home and not vote.
I expect a lot of black people will sit this one out. They haven't made the economic gains they thought they would. But that's only 12% of the population.
Here's a web site to use to gather an understanding of what has happened in terms of who voted this guy in:
