    PRINCETON, NJ -- A new Gallup Poll, conducted May 7-10, finds 51% of Americans calling themselves "pro-life" on the issue of abortion and 42% "pro-choice." This is the first time a majority of U.S. adults have identified themselves as pro-life since Gallup began asking this question in 1995.

    And the most pro-abortion president was just elected by a decisive margin. This would indicate that however you "feel" about abortion, it's not a big voting issue for most people.

    Correct. It's not a hot button issue any longer. People are much more concerned with economic and international policy issues than with abortion. Further, it's settled law unlikely to be changed (given Obama's opportunity to appoint USSC justices) in our lifetimes. It'd done.

    Significantly more decisive than either the 2000 or 2004 elections. And remember the R cry after those much closer elections: "You lost. Get over it."

    Sorry, us in the center don't think either Bush or Obama stole the election. However, it was not simply in response to the election results that "You lost. Get over it." became the mantra of the right; rather it was always the argument of last resort against those who opposed any of Georgie's policies.
