We’ve noted before that the key demographic to this election will be married women.  While Obama will undoubtedly win the unmarried women vote by a large margin, he does not have a lock on the broader female vote.  Here are some good tidings from a Bloomberg poll in Ohio and Virginia:

In the poll conducted Oct. 4-7, married moms supported Romney over Obama 50 percent to 44 percent in Ohio and 50 percent to 45 percent in Virginia.

The poll suggests that these voters’ presidential choice correlates to their employment situation, with those who work full-time for pay backing Obama while those who don’t overwhelmingly pick Romney in both states.
