It's a little harder to change your mind on your sex. I don't see any way that the gender gap gets erased in both directions, that Romeny is picking up support among women at the same time he is losing it among men. Just seems incredibly unlikely.
I agree but I do think the gap has closed. I just can;t believe it closed THAT MUCH in that amount of times... UNLESS you are looking at a shift from polling all women, or registered voters to LIKELY voters. I'd have to go back and check, but that will make for a jump just like it did when Gallup switched.
