    It has to do with birth control, and I really doubt that anyone who bases their vote for president on it is going to be confused by it, or that it was somehow a deciding factor in supporting Scott Brown (seriously, in order to arrive at your logic, you have to assume that someone is so rabidly anti-choice that they don't support birth control, that they feel this is a very important vote; and they were either undecided or supporting Elizabeth Warren when she's very clearly pro-choice).

    Medium: Ruffles some pro-choice feathers but minimal local coverage means issue is out of mind by election day unless you are an anti-choice Democrat in which case you remember you like Brown because of this vote.
    That's why this logic makes absolutely no sense, why are these anti-choice Democrats (who, for some reason, are more well informed and numerous than pro-choice Independents who may well have liked Brown's economic positions but are absolutely offended by supporting the Blunt Amendment).

    •  Distorting what I wrote (0+ / 0-)

      I never said anti-choice voters are more informed. I'm saying people that are medium informed voters who are pro-choice will have millions of other data points that they decide from. But people that are anti-choice medium information voters will rank this vote more highly IMHO.
