Value Voters Strategy

USA Today reports that the GOP is lining up social issues at the state level to get conservative voters to the polls in November.

They appear to be focusing on three items at the national level:
  • Protection of marriage amendment
  • Anti-flag burning legislation
  • New abortion limits

Gay marriage bans in several states are credited with boosting conservative turnout in the 2004 election by enough voters to put President Bush over the top for re-election.

But the GOP also failed miserably with a similar tack in the 1992 elections with their "Family Values" campaign. (USAToday)
