That's what the RePUKE take on the election is.

1. No, since about 70% of the population wants to keep free choice
(at least the last bunch of polls I have seen for the last few years)

2. No...they assumed it could not be
If I had a dollar for every Repub-voting woman who told me that "they'd never overturn", I could buy something.

7. And a lot of voters I believe never had the subject enter their minds.
I think this happens with the younger people who grew up with it just being there, like the sun is there. They didn't know how it was before Roe just like they didn't know what it was like before having PCs.

4. abortion is thatt strong of an issue
that most people who oppose it wouldn't even consider voting for Kerry or any other pro-abortion candidate.

thats the tragedy of single issue voting

6. I know all my pro-choice republican friends didn't think they were

I think you guys would be surprised at the number of pro-choicers who voted for Bush thinking that Roe vs. Wade will never be overturned.

Lots of people voted because they trusted Bush over Kerry to protect them from "terra"

The majority of America is pro-choice!

8. the Repukes should read the polls
this is a losing issue for them.
They are getting greedy and the people are seeing it now more and more.
Remember that all Americans love an underdog.
That's what us liberals are right now, the underdog.
If we fight with all we got to keep this guy out, they will back us up.

10. No, but I don't think it was a high priority for them either.
Many things we fight for, like choice, the environment, higher minimum wage, etc. are not issues that move enough voters. The Repugs grab onto the largest single issue blocks with their wedges.

People who did not vote for Kerry DID VOTE TO OVERTURN ROE, many just not consciously. Bush has made no secret of his intent to kill Roe.
