Peggy Noonan, If I Were A Democrat.
The Groups--all the left-wing outfits from the abortion people to the enviros--didn't deliver in the last election, and not because they didn't try. They worked their hearts out. But they had no one to deliver. They had only money. The secret: Nobody likes them. Nobody! No matter how you feel about abortion, no one likes pro-abortion fanatics.I think that's basically correct and, remembering that 43% of American women have had one or more abortions, it sets up some cognitive dissonance, not to mention a market for Prozac.
