Santorum Picks Up Women’s Support

Despite fervent anti-contraception rhetoric and a steadfast opposition to abortion, former Pennsylvania Sen. Rick Santorum appears to be doing better with the fairer sex. A new poll from The Washington Post and ABC reveals that his popularity has spiked among Republican women by 13 points since January. Fifty-seven percent now hold a favorable view of the candidate, who is getting close to Mitt Romney’s level of support among women. Romney has a 61 percent favorability rating among GOP women, but he has higher unfavorability ratings.
