Obama Camp Downplays Poll Showing Eroding Advantage With Women

Poll skepticism abounds, this year


RICHMOND, Va.—Count President Obama's campaign among the growing legion of poll skeptics.

Asked if the campaign is concerned about the poll's findings indicate Obama's outreach to women is not breaking through, Psaki issued a curt, "No."
