    Men and women that support the measures are fairly evenly split (22% of women, 25% of men, about the MoE in the poll). But 15% of Democratic voters support them as opposed to nearly 40% of Republican voters. But when you get to liberal versus conservative you get the real disparity, 5% of liberals support the measure and the same nearly 40% of conservatives do.

    •  5% of liberals support this? Anyone that (0+ / 0-)

      supports this should not be calling themselves a liberal.

      •  Sorry, there is no "acid test" for being a liberal (0+ / 0-)

        We've got ones that strongly support the 2nd Amendment (like Russ Feingold), pronuke liberals, etc. It's the sum total of someone's actions that I go by when deciding someone is liberal or conservative.

        •  What?! It's OK for some liberals to support (0+ / 0-)

          forced rape?

          •  They don't believe it is forced rape (0+ / 0-)

            I personally can't understand that position, but I'm not throwing them off the liberal bus for it.

            •  No one is allowed to define rape for themselves. (0+ / 0-)

              It has a very simple definition.  This is very clearly rape, if you've read the diary and comments.

              My point stands.
