Stem Cell Veto Good for Democrats?
Sen. Charles Schumer, D- N.Y., the head of the Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee, said Tuesday that surveys show significant voter movement to the Democrats due to the stem cell issue. Many scientists say that use of cells derived from embryos offers hope of finding treatments for Parkinson's disease and other ailments. "Protestant non-evangelical Republicans" are shifting, Schumer told reporters. "The elder in the Presbyterian church in the suburbs of Cincinnati," Schumer said with precise specificity, naming his electoral target. "There's a feeling among more affluent Republicans of uncomfortable-ness with where the Republican Party is headed." Such voters, Schumer said, "don't like Schiavo," a reference to congressional intervention last year in the case of the disabled Florida woman Terri Schiavo. "And they don't like creationism being taught in the public schools, and they sure don't like blocking stem cell research. It's an issue that affects lots of swing voter Republicans who will move to the Democratic sideâ€¦. When they know somebody who says, â€˜My daughter could be blind by age 20, please allow stem cell research,' they don't see why not."
