Candidates seek opposite gender's votes

WASHINGTON (AP) - Women are flocking to Hillary Clinton's Democratic presidential candidacy and men are doing the same for Republican Fred Thompson.

Yet, both candidates understand the need to do better with the opposite sex in the general election.

For instance, recent AP-Ipsos polling finds Clinton gets 63 percent of her support from women, while Thompson gets 68 percent of his support from men. That's not bad for a man who's not even an official candidate yet.

And knowing that doing well with both men and women is the key to winning, both political camps say their candidate will be able to deliver opposite sex votes when it's time.
