From a recent ABC poll (WARNING: PDF which I have had some problem opening in my browser, but can "save as" and open as a separate file):
More of a swing group is white Catholics. Their preference for Democrats has shifted from an 18-point margin in August to a mere two-point margin in September and back to a 22-point margin now. Where they end up is essential; along with independents, white Catholics historically have been a decisive group in election outcomes.

The Times Magazine cover story today is a doozie.
Now that abortion provision in most places in the US has been squeezed or eliminated by the death by a thousand cuts technique of the pro-life fanatics, they're moving seamlessly on to expand their activities against contraception.
RU-486 is a transitional guy for them. And Bush himself has declined to support the right to contraception.
We even have Plan B getting Hillary on the right side (that's to say, the left side) of the argument for once!
