Gender gap?

“President Obama won women by 12 percentage points, while Mitt Romney won men by 8. That’s a 20-point gender gap, edging out the 1984 election when Ronald Reagan defeated Democrat Walter Mondale in a landslide. ”

Quote is from 11/9/12 article on data from Gallup.

If that is correct analysis of all the actual vote data I have 2 questions:

1. Ladies, why?

2. Why does Gallup or anyone have a db of actual voting data? I want to see that data and confirm our votes were recorded accurately ( you should too).

UPDATE: I just read in Krauthammer’s newest article that in voting demographics the female gender gap is specifically tied to single women.
