Let's look at their prospects with our team of powerhouse women. Nicolle wallace, donna brazile, who ran al gore's campaign, and cokie roberts. Cokie, let me begin with you and put up other figures from our poll. It shows president obama leading among women, 53% to 45%. An eight-point lead right now. Governor romney, winning with men. 50% to 45%. President obama's lead with women is bigger than governor romney's lead with women right now. That is key because there are more women voters.
