A look at the dwindling gender gap in just one of the states where the ad is running gives it away. In Virginia -- ground zero for the so-called "war on women" because of anti-abortion initiatives in the state capitol -- Obama was running ahead of Romney in Quinnipiac University polls in March and June, largely because of monster leads among women. The gender gap was 13 points in March and 16 points in June.
Then came July's survey, which found the candidates deadlocked at 44 percent each. The gender gap had shrunk to only 5 points.
The new spot is airing in FL, IA, NC, NH, VA, NV and OH and starts in CO on Monday. Politifact rated it "Pants on Fire.''
