Edited to add: I think that if most people knew that Ryan believes in Fetal Personhood, the Republican half would still vote for them, and the Democrat half still wouldn't.
I have a feeling that a lot of people who identify as Republicans are NOT for fetal personhood. Kind of like an awful lot of Catholics use birth control.
But yes the same thing has occurred to me. Palin was also ultra-conservative but she was also very vocal about it and she was loud and alienated a lot of people. Ryan could probably do better if he keeps quiet. lol
For all we talk about it here, an awful lot of people are not into politics at all. There's a thread in CE about some guy who got jealous of his girlfriend for looking at a facebook page of Romney because he didn't know who it was.
