“The court has made clear today that the Obama administration’s assault on religious freedom in this case went too far,” said Gov. Bobby Jindal of Louisiana, one of several conservative Republicans weighing a White House run. “But this assault will not stop in our courts, in our schools and in the halls of power.” […]The problem for Republicans? Other than their really hard-core base, voters don't think this about religious freedom and they sure as hell know it isn't about abortion. Despite what five aging men on the Supreme Court say, contraception is not abortion no matter what your boss might "believe." For most of the public, this is about how much control your boss has in the very personal decisions you make about your health, your life, and your family's life. See here:
Though Democrats contend that voters will trust them more than they trust Republicans on women’s health issues, polls show that the question can cut both ways and that abortion remains just as decisive for Republicans. Asked whether they would still vote for a candidate who did not share their views on abortion, 60 percent of Democrats and 54 percent of Republicans said they would not, according to a New York Times/CBS News poll in February.
At this point in 2010, Democrats had a narrow congressional-preference lead with women (44%-43%), and the GOP had a significant advantage with white women (51%-36%). Now? Democrats hold a double-digit with all women (50%-38%), and white women are pretty much a jump ball (GOP 45%, Dems 44%).Gee, now why would women be abandoning the GOP? They just need to vote, and Hobby Lobby can deliver those votes. Even some more of those white women.
