Is it true? The polling is nearly unanimous: no, it's not.
In an Ohio poll released November 8, Newt received the support of 22% of the women surveyed. 17% of men said they would vote for him. His favorability ratings: 60-24 among women and 64-25% with men.
In a Wisconsin poll released late October -- where he would likely have better numbers right now -- Newt's seen favorably by 53% women; 32 viewed him unfavorably. Men were 48/43.
In a Nevada poll -- also from late October, the breakdown was:
Men: 72/24.All of which is to say that in some polls Newt does a little better among men, does better among women in some, and generally does about the same.
But when has facts stopped the media and pundits from saying something?
