CNN Contributors Erick Erickson and Maria Cardona weigh in on President Obama and Romney trying to win over women

Just 19 days remain before Election Day and the candidates and their running mates are hot on the campaign trail to win over women voters. Obama and Romney are trashing each other to convince women that only one is the right choice for them. Obama’s large lead over women has declined in the last month and Romney had been making strides with them before his now infamous “binders full of women” remark. Either way, women remain a key demographic since they make up over half of the electorate. CNN Contributors Erick Erickson and Maria Cardona weigh in on the strategy. Erickson is the Editor-in-Chief of RedState.com and Cardona is Former Senior Adviser to Hillary Clinton.
