Slaggie Pooh-Poohs Polls
"Social issues are always further down the list of voters' concerns, below jobs, the economy, getting blown up by terrorists, health care and education -- this year is no exception. But the values issues continue to be crucial to any Republican who hopes to get elected president. Other than the budget deficit, the only issues strongly favoring Romney are gun control (52-44) and gay marriage (50-43). Romney clearly has repair work to do. Even after Rick Santorum's withdrawal, 46 percent of GOP voters say they would prefer someone else. But 88 percent of Republicans say they will vote for Romney, as will 90 percent of conservative Republicans and 91 percent of white evangelicals." - Maggie Gallagher, writing for UExpress.
