Contraception is a health care debate.
In the fifth Swing States survey taken since last fall, Obama leads Republican front-runner Mitt Romney51%-42% among registered voters just a month after the president had trailed him by two percentage points.
The biggest change came among women under 50. In mid-February, just under half of those voters supported Obama. Now more than six in 10 do while Romney’s support among them has dropped by 14 points, to 30%. The president leads him 2-1 in this group.[…]
Obama campaign manager Jim Messina says Romney’s promise to “end Planned Parenthood” — the former Massachusetts governor says he wants to eliminate federal funding for the group — and his endorsement of an amendment that would allow employers to refuse to cover contraception in health care plans have created “severe problems” for him in the general election.
When they say most Americans want the Affordable Care Act aka “Obamacare” repealed. Most of these women who support access to contraception are some of the Americans probably don’t know that the contraception access rules the Obama Administration issued were part of that law.
