If you’re running for office and want to make a pragmatic choice which one should you pick? So if someone picks the one with least support it; that cannot be a cynical calculated move, right? With some simple analysis there are reasons for Republicans to pick the third one. As Republican budget plans currently include tax cuts for the richest Americans and cuts in social programs designed to help the poorest Americans. As rich people are outnumber by poor people, Republicans cannot directly run on this. Democrats realizing that they do not want to lose on this one issue particularly in red states, often choose the most popular of the three positions. Democratic voters usually don’t put this issue as a high priority. Republican politicians seem to take whatever position suits them, see Rick Perry realizing he needed more support from evangelicals. Or VA Governor Robert F. McDonnell either he is moderating his position or he allowed himself to misunderstood for 20 years for political benefit. Based on this there is only one conclusion I can draw: Republican politicians don’t really care about this issue either. For many of them, the Legality of Abortion just another wedge issue to cause people to vote against their economic interests. This issue works perfectly as a wedge for Republics, because the people who are against them would not vote for a Pro-Choice Republican anyway. And if you threw-up in your mouth reading this, then you understand this issue perfectly.
