"Security moms" dump GOP

| Reddit | Tumblr | Digg | FARK

Washington Post finds the latest round of bad news for the GOP. They're losing an integral part of the coalition based on fear-mongering:

Married women with children, the "security moms" whose concerns about terrorism made them an essential part of Republican victories in 2002 and 2004, are taking flight from GOP politicians this year in ways that appear likely to provide a major boost for Democrats in the midterm elections, according to polls and interviews....

The study, which examined the views of married women with children from April through this week, found that they support Democrats for Congress by a 12-point margin, 50 percent to 38 percent. That is nearly a mirror-image reversal from a similar period in 2002, when this group backed Republicans 53 percent to 36 percent.
Everyone knows, you can't keep lying to mothers and get away with it. They can tell.
