Many women supporting presidential candidate Mitt Romney are not driven by contraception politics but by struggling household economies, despite Democratic expectations that they will build the gender gap by assailing the Republican as a pro-lifer driven to end abortion.
In interviews with female Romney supporters, most don’t think he will delve into abortion issues other than to limit federal funding if given a chance as president. Some pro-choice women even told Secrets that they are confident he won’t challenge that status quo because he hasn’t made it a centerpiece of his campaign.
Indeed. Plus: “They also expressed dismay that Romney’s effort to woo women to his administration when governor Massachusetts–highlighted by his Tuesday debate line ‘a binder full of women’–is being used against him.”
