REPORT: ROMNEY RAN AS PRO-CHOICE IN 1994 BECAUSE POLL SHOWED ‘IT WOULD BE IMPOSSIBLE FOR A PRO-LIFE CANDIDATE TO WIN’

By Judd Legum


In a new book, Boston journalist Roland Scott reports that Mitt Romney ran on a pro-choice platform in 1994 after “polling from Richard Wirthlin, Ronald Reagan’s former pollster whom Romney had hired for the ’94 campaign, showed it would be impossible for a pro-life candidate to win statewide office in Massachusetts.” Romney is now trying to assure conservative voters he is pro-life, and has previously said his switch before running for the presidency was a moral revelation.
