Would John McCain work to end abortion as president? has a Poll up asking "if you believe John McCain would sincerely work to end abortion if he is elected president". 65% of the readers voted "Absolutely."

I find their faith in him amusing, as there isn't a snowball's chance in hell of him actually trying to end Abortion. He might get a few laws passed to restrict it, but that's it.

He's a politician, and abortion is an issue that can be used to whip voters into a frenzy. What's more, it's a "Litmus test" issue for many people. As long as he's vocally against abortion, millions will vote for him regardless of any other factor.

If abortion were eliminated, many Conservative Politicians would have to earn the votes of a block that's already in their pocket.

Think about it. If The Republicans were as against abortion as they claim, why was a constitutional amendment to end it never even proposed in the six years that the Republicans controlled the White House, the Senate and the House?
