Skip to comments.Gallup survey: Obama’s double down on abortion is a serious mistake now that Ryan is in the race

The panic of the Left over Mitt Romneys selection of Wisconsin conservative Paul Ryan is evident and well founded, because of Ryans perfect pro-life credentials. The Democrats have always loved abortion.
It has been the way they could mesmerize women into supporting them. This is why the results of a largely ignored May 2012 Gallup survey, combined with the selection of Ryan, delivers a hammer blow to Barack Obama.
In his fear and distress Obama has launched an attack on Ryans perfect pro-life record which will backfire big time.
Right now Paul Ryan is an unknown quantity to a large portion of the nation. Democrats think filling in the blanks and letting people know he is pro-life is good for them it is not.
Why is this attack a mistake? Gallups survey of Americas attitude toward abortion makes it very clear abortion is a losing issue for Obama.
Gallups headline .it gets worse for Obama from there, Pro-Choice Americans at Record-Low 41%. Support for abortion has been steadily falling since 1996 when it was favored by a huge 56/33 margin.
Nevertheless, pro-abortion supporters have been losing strength at a startling rate just since last May when they were on top 49/45. In just fifteen months that margin has moved 13 points in the right direction to todays 50/41 pro-life.
numbers by Party
The survey found Republicans are 72/22 pro-life an improvement of 10 points from just last year. The swing among Independents is even bigger. Since 2011 they have moved 16 points against abortion.
Perhaps the most serious bad news for Obamas all in play on abortion is the plunge of support for abortion among Democrats. Since 2011 when abortion was favored 68/27 by Democrats their pro-life sentiment has moved 17 points to 58/34...

The repeated “Romney hates women because he doesn’t support contraception” (which he meant he doesn’t support tax payer funded, but don’t let facts get in the way) and Ryan “hates” women because he doesn’t support abortion is streaming Facebook.
The libs on my list post it and I am really surprised by how many people are arguing either “Obama is doing it too” or “Obama is worse” or even defending Romney/Ryan. It seems folks are slowly waking up. I hope.
Some polls have shown that even many respondents who say they are “pro-choice” actually favor considerable restrictions on abortion, and also that a significant percentage do not realize that our current law is “kill any baby, any time, for any reason.” I hope Mr. Ryan’s presence in the campaign will help to educate the people.
The Leftist religion has two sacraments: Government control and Abortion. Homosexual marriage may be added when the Democrats meet in convention.
Interesting planks for the party that wants conservatives to "stay out of the bedroom."
