New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie (R) is advising his party not to "cater" to women with a different message than men because it would be "condescending."

During an interview on Tuesday, Christie told CBS host Charlie Rose that there was a "fallacy about having to cater to a particular sector of the electorate."

"For instance, I hear people talk all the time about female voters," he said. "I think it's condescending to women to say we have to have a different message for women than we have with men."

Christie explained that the way to get the support of women voters was just to tell them that "this is the message for our party."

"I'm going to lay out a message for our party tonight [at the Republican convention] that I think will resonate just as much with women voters as it will with men voters."

A poll released by Lifetime Television on Monday found that presumptive Republican presidential nominee Mitt Romney had a real problem winning over women voters. He trailed President Barack Obama, 36 percent to 52 percent.

While 50 percent of the women surveyed gave Obama positive marks as president, only 31 percent thought that Romney would do a better job.
