We have already seen the results of the gay marriage issue at the ballot box.  It is a winning issue for conservatives, despite the erroneous claims by unprincipled Republican consultants.  Now, the latest Gallup poll shows that the other major social issue, abortion, has turned in our favor as well.

According to the poll released today, A record-low 41 percent now identify as pro-choice.  Concurrently, 50 percent of Americans now consider themselves pro-life.  Independents side with life 47-41%, and even 34% of Democrats expressed pro-life sentiments.

This begs the question: why do flaccid Republicans continue to view social issues as political losers that chase away independents?  Isn’t it the Democrats view on these issues that is a political liability?
