Rick Perry now opposes abortion in the case of rape and incest:
Responding to a question about the change in position, Perry said, “You’re seeing a transformation.”
Perry says his unprecedented and heartfelt transformation came after watching Mike Huckabee’s new documentary, “The Gift of Life”, which premiered in Des Moines. In related news, the latest PPP Iowa poll has some interesting internals:
Santorum actually has the best favorability numbers of any of the candidates at +27 (56/29). He’s also the most frequent second choice of voters at 14%. Whether he can translate any of this into a top 3 finish remains to be seen, but he’s someone who would seem to have the potential to grow his support in the final week.
They might as well rename the “Iowa Republican Caucus” to the “Abortion and Gay-Hating Referendum” and be done with the charade that there’s anything else going on in that state.
