The battle over the Women vote

Last night Ann Romney spoke at the RNC about her husband, Mitt Romney, and shed some new light on the GOP Presidential nominee. Ann also tried to appeal to women voters, a demographic that has been fought over by both sides. In 2008, women outnumbered men at the polls by a margin of 10 million voters. So did Ann’s speech last night connect with the Female demographic who may have been feeling alienated by the ugliness happening around them? Melissa Harris Perry pulled up a chair to The Cycle table to help answer the question.      read more

08/28/12 09:38AM

When he takes the stage in Tampa tonight, Chris Christie will receive a warmer welcome than the last New Jersey governor to deliver the keynote address at a Republican convention. That would be Tom Kean, the aristocratic exponent of the “politics of inclusion,” whose speech to the party’s New Orleans gathering was interrupted by taunts from anti-abortion delegates.Opposition to legal abortion is even more widespread in the GOP today than it was then, thanks to a quarter-century influx of conservative evangelicals and a corresponding exodus of cultural moderates. read more
