Dean: GOP Giving Up Ground Gained from ObamaCare with Contraception Fight

‘It’s just astonishing to me that they just cannot get out of their own way in terms of winning elections’

DEAN: “Well, I do think we should frame it that way, but the average woman in this country frames it that way herself. She doesn't have to be told what the Republicans, and FOX News, and all of these people are doing. They know what they're doing. We found, as I said, we found this out when we did focus groups on pro-life women in Western Pennsylvania. They don't vote Democratic, but they're going to start now. And that is why you see this enormous gender gap particularly among single women, in for example, in the Virginia governor's election last November. I just -- it's amazing to me to watch the Republicans, here they nail the Democrats because the website didn't work right and now they're giving up all of that ground that they just made in the last three months. From a political point of view, it's just astonishing to me that they just cannot get out of their own way in terms of winning elections.”
