These findings are similar to those regarding another common political charge these days, that some candidates are engaging in a “war on women.” But 59% of voters say the “war on women” is primarily a slogan used for political purposes. Only 22% believe there really is a political “war on women” going on.

When it comes to the specifics of the president, however, a racial divide is evident. Eighty-seven percent (87%) of black voters believe those who oppose Obama’s policies do so because of racism.
