The news media have said for the past few weeks that Rick Santorum’s conservative views will alienate women.
The facts on the ground say otherwise.
The Washington Post reports: “…Santorum has grown more popular among women while talking about his opposition to abortion, his disapproval of birth control and his view that the federal government shouldn’t pay for prenatal screenings. A new Washington Post-ABC News poll shows not only that Santorum is doing better among GOP women than he was a few weeks ago, but also that he is less unpopular — and also less well known — among Democratic and independent women than his Republican rivals Mitt Romney and Newt Gingrich.”
People like people who are authentic. Mitt Romney has an authenticity problem. Newt Gingrich has an authenticity problem. Rick Santorum and Ron Paul have no authenticity problem.
