-- the new York times of all places reporting a big draw in president Obama's approval rating.
There's a new poll and it shows only.
-- want to send.
Approve of the president's job performance I say this is mostly about gas prices -- don't light is no silver bullet line.
If what he's got societies is really can't do anything short term and -- -- -- joins us now she's the co host all of the faux.
Hit show the five train locomotives and Eric thanks for having me.
That data has been sitting right here did some digging into this poll -- OK he's down to 41%.
Approval but inside that -- there was a huge drop in -- support among women.
Can you explain that -- -- don't what was it -- twelve well it's points down from 53 to 41.
Or he only lost four point for men but twelve point drop among women this is at a time when he was supposed to gaining some I don't women because of free contraceptive.
-- -- -- about four weeks ago when they started -- talk about this contraception mandate and over the lack the course of the last few weeks this is where he's lost ground.
And I think it also I think it has to do with gas prices but I think it has to do with the fact that.
Women who are controlling the budgets in their house are looking at the White House and they're looking at the democratic talking points and they see them talking about things like.
Vaginal sonogram and they're saying -- This is more Democrats I think have made mistakes in the past they assumed that women are one issue voters -- only vote on the boards.
Abortion -- a monolith.
Were not women are concerned about gas prices health care jobs just as much as men are and I think this White House has made a very very dangerous decision.
And I -- the near times he's -- -- -- on dangerous ground that they -- a dangerous decision to make this all about women and birth control.
When there's such an unrest in the Middle East and economic on we.
Could the president turn things around on gas prices could -- suddenly side.
OK let's build that pipeline let's do it Campbell who want to we just drill here and drill that what could -- turn things around I think if gas prices go down.
Before Election Day it's gonna help them I mean people won't be as serious with him but the question is.
Is this image of him being against drilling and against the pipeline and such an obstructionist -- got burned into the minds of the electorate.
And I think -- did it I think that even if he flip flops on the pipeline people aren't gonna look at him and say.
Allowed this as a responsible decision they're gonna say this was a huge mistake and this could happen sooner and now there's talk that the White House -- listen billed -- back another pipeline.
Hi I'm I'm just really understood that the rapidity of the -- around knows only what last week of the week before.
Seem to be doing very very well he was a -- in the Democrats were saying he's you he's -- home for he's gonna win.
Front page of the New York Times he's on dangerous ground I -- -- that was a very sudden thing -- and when you when you also look at those numbers it shows that 54%.
Over 36 -- believe that the president can do something about gas prices so that's tricky -- you get half of that think -- can.
Did you think the president can wave a magic wand and change gas prices tomorrow morning I think he can do a lot to turn the situation.
Around you know who can play waivers it has -- this is ahead of the Federal Reserve fact it's so much of what is happening with gas prices.
As a result of the the value of the dollar.
The Federal Reserve would have to tighten TV he's caught between a rock and a hard place hasn't -- -- wants free money for everybody before election.
Every president does not just -- Democrats but Republicans still.
But on the other hand he wants the prices gas to come down and really the only I think you can do that is by strengthening in the value of the dollar.
He had to and so conference -- no one has confidence in that he could pull this off when you come out on and you talk about algae.
There goes my vote mean because really that's not the answer and it's not with the futures market is saying bring us the county right now that's not what we're hearing.
And that's not what we're here -- that we're hearing the wrong thing out of the White House political speeches -- all demonizing the oil company -- demonizing its finger pointing.
That's another thing women don't like yeah they want answers and stop the gridlock.
You're the president you say the buck stops in your office well do some yet but you know what the Republicans are and and a very final line with that too because enough with the social issues.
That's not what we're voting on here there's way too much social talk I think in this campaign and they risk losing women as well they do but in a Republican primary when you're going into states -- particularly now like Alabama and other states.
To get the primary voters a lot of the polling internally and in these campaign says this might not hurt you to talk about this -- that.
Hundreds and terrace everybody we'll see tonight on the -- you went well yes I will New Zealand thanks --
