Looking to garner support among women voters, President Barack Obama went on a political attack against Mitt Romney on Thursday. The democrat criticized Romney for his support of Richard Mourdock, a candidate for the Senate in Indiana who controversially stated that pregnancies resulting from rape are "something God intended."

The Obama campaign recently put out an online video to confront the Republican presidential candidate for his association with Mourdock:

"Unlike some other leaders in the Republican Party, like John McCain, Mitt Romney hasn't questioned the endorsement of Richard Mourdock or ever once stood up to the most extreme elements of his own party. Instead, he tapes ads for them."

Although one of Romney's campaign aides stated that he disagreed with Mourdock's remark, the former governor of Massachusetts appears to be standing by Mourdock, as he hasn't requested that the Indiana state treasurer remove a TV ad that Romney filmed for him earlier in the week.

National polls currently have the presidential race between the two candidates in a dead heat. However, Romney is struggling to overcome Obama in the state-by-state campaign to obtain 270 Electoral College votes, which is needed to win the presidency.

The race is ultimately centered upon nine states, where the polls are showing the closest competition: Ohio, Florida, Iowa, New Hampshire, Virginia, North Carolina, Colorado, Nevada and Wisconsin.

After lagging behind Obama in recent months among females, Romney has began to gain ground in the demographic. The Associated Press-GfK poll released on Thursday indicated that the Republican closed the gap on Obama's 16-point advantage among women while actually reducing his favoritism among male voters.

Romney will look to portray the Obama campaign as being focused on small issues as the Republican aims to sell the U.S. voters on his willingness to fix the country's serious financial woes. On the other hand, Obama will continue to exploit Romney for both his lack of experience in the Oval Office and his association with Mourdock, along with other issues.
