Exit polls in Virginia show that President Obama leads women by only 5 points.

52 percent of women polled supported President Obama; 47 percent of women supported Mitt Romney.

That shows an anemic boost for the Obama campaign as they saturated the airwaves with "Republican War on Women" themed ads.

During the Virginia governor's race in 2010, Chreigh Deeds and the DNC ran a similar campaign, insisting that Republican candidate Bob McDonnell was wrong for women. 

McDonnell of course, won 54 percent of women that year; Creigh Deeds only won 46 percent.
