Sen. Hil­lary Rod­ham Clin­ton seems to in­spire poll­sters to pick apart their num­bers. Here’s the latest from Gallup on the New York Demo­crat, re­veal­ing her ap­peal to women, in­clud­ing 12-year-olds, ap­par­ently.

“The largest in­creases in sup­port for Clin­ton have come among the fol­low­ing Demo­cratic sub­groups: rural res­i­dents (+20), women with a col­lege de­gree (+15), sin­gle women (+13), younger women (+12), and those with no chil­dren un­der 18 (+12). Ob­vi­ously, there is much over­lap in mem­ber­ship among th­ese groups, but clearly, a stronger ap­peal to cer­tain sub­groups of women within the Demo­cratic Party has been a key to Clin­ton’s ex­panded lead.”

Over­all, 52 per­cent of Demo­cratic women fa­vor Mrs. Clin­ton, com­pared with 41 per­cent of Demo­cratic men, plus 55 per­cent of both sin­gle women and women with­out a col­lege ed­u­ca­tion. Low­in­come Democrats (56 per­cent) and East­ern res­i­dents (53 per­cent) also are marked Mrs. Clin­ton fans.

Her weak­est show­ing among any Demo­cratic sub­groups is among col­lege-ed­u­cated men — just 34 per­cent sup­port her can­di­dacy.
