Romney and Gingrich Are Pro-What? And Who Is On RightOn’s Short List?

Filling in a BallotJulie Rovner of NPR blogged that Mitt Romney never really was pro-choice. Here’s the quote:

“In Massachusetts, when he was running for governor…a very liberal state, a state that was pro-choice, he was playing to the audience,” says Nancy Keenan, President of NARAL Pro-Choice America. “And he made promises to the pro-choice community at that time that he did not keep,” she said, including vetoing a bill that would have provided emergency contraceptives to victims of rape. “So the fact of the matter is he was not authentic in his position at that time.”

The top four candidates in this poll, Cain, Romney, Gingrich, and Paul, all show a steady upward trend in the three CBS/NYT polls (9/16, 10/3, and 10/25) with Cain having the strongest upward trend. The polls show steady erosion of support for Perry and Bachmann with Perry having the sharpest down trend. Indecision also decreased from 22%-14% (from 18% to 8% in the Tea Party subset).
