Yup. They don't like a woman's right to choose at all out there.
I read something like 68% of registered republicans consider themselves evangelical Christians.
I'm still struggling to understand Santorum's popularity in Iowa.
that explains a lot
I love the compassion of the Evangelicals - they just can't stop protecting life (Muslims need not apply).CNN exits polls
only have 57% identifying as Born-Again/Evangelical (apparently there's a difference?), but to your point, Santorum took nearly a third of that vote, almost twice Paul's 18%.
Another maddening fact from the exit polls was 28% of caucus goers said they made up their mind "in the last few days" and 18% said "today" (Santorum had healthy margins over Romney in both those categories). I'm not sure where those people had been for the last couple of months, but I have to seriously question how informed your decision is if you made up your mind in the last week of December.
One other fun fact: 64% of voters support the Tea Party, and Santorum won 29% of that bloc (Paul and Romney each had 19%). Now, regardless of your opinion on the Tea Party, this just proves to me once again that the Tea Party does not really believe in small gov't, fiscal restraint, and civil liberties. Because if they did, they surely wouldn't be supporting a guy who voted for the largest (unfunded) Medicare expansion in history and the Patriot Act, vows never to cut the defense budget ever, and would propose a federal ban on gay marriage (overturning those pesky states that currently allow it; the 10th amendment is for the weak). The Tea Party is nothing more than a faction of the mainstream GOP who fancies themselves historians because they like to put on stupid tri-corner hats.
