A vast majority of Americans – up to 77% – agree with President Obama and Democrats on the heavily debated contraception issue. But don’t tell that to the Republicans, as they all gladly hop on the dune buggy and continue digging down deeper in the gutters.
Americans overwhelmingly regard the debate over President Barack Obama’s policy on employer-provided contraceptive coverage as a matter of women’s health, not religious freedom, rejecting Republicans’ rationale for opposing the rule. More than three-quarters say the topic shouldn’t even be a part of the U.S. political debate.
More than six in 10 respondents to a Bloomberg National Poll — including almost 70 percent of women — say the issue involves health care and access to birth control, according to the survey taken March 8-11.
