“Douglas Kmiec is the kind of Catholic voter...”
Who has abandoned his Catholicism.
Doug Kmiec is an apostate.
One might consider that the abortion issue is like a comet that comes back only every 4 years during Presidential elections and is absent in all interim elections slackens interest.
This issue does not grab Catholics like it used to. Choice is now included in the GOP big tent. Guiliani was once the leading contender and GOP governors are not challenged.
Catholics are also interested in economic family issues like jobs, health care and education costs. On social issues, helping the poor brings more recruits at Church than abortion clinic protests.
The abortion issue has to have a life span in politics greater than a Presidential election or fade as a wedge issue.
