Gallup reports today that 39 percent of female registered voters in swing states believe abortion is the most important issue in this election.
This raises a few possibilities:
The same Gallup poll asks respondents which issues will most impact their vote in November (or in October with all the early voting spreading like a fungus across the country). Among women — and I realize that birth control is not the same as abortion, but abortion wasn’t asked about — birth control came in a very distant fifth after unemployment, foreign affairs, healthcare, and the federal debt and deficit.
So, if the same poll gives a result that says abortion is by far the most important single issue to women but that a similar issue is not close to being the most important vote-influencing issue, it becomes rather difficult not to conclude that there may be some merit to the first bullet point above (perhaps along with the second and fourth.)
Please don’t tell my wife I said this.
A man of faith in a godless age is hitting Americans where it hurts.
Mr. and Mrs. American Spectator Reader, let P.J. O’Rourke talk sense to your kids.
In Britain, defending your property can get you life.
The debacle of this president’s administration is both a cause and a symptom of the decline of American values. Unless Congress impeaches him, that decline will go on unchecked. An eminent jurist surveys the damage and assesses the chances for the recovery of our culture.
It won’t take long for conservatives to scratch this presidential wannabe off their 2008 scorecard.
The American Christmas, like the songs that celebrate it, makes room for everybody under the rainbow. Is that why so many people seem to be hostile to it?
Was the President done in by the economy, or by the politics of the economy?
