The brilliance of the Republican strategy to go all in with the Catholic bishops on denying birth control to women is paying off major dividends. If you are a Democrat. A new poll shows absolutely no drop in support for Obama among Catholics after 2 weeks of birth control dominating the news. This doesn’t surprise me at all. The extremists within the Catholic Church who really care about denying contraception are the same people who are fanatical anti-abortion activists. Not only are they a relatively small minority among self-identifying Catholics, but they weren’t going to vote for Obama anyway.
