Romney: Abortion not on my agenda

I’m left wondering how this will pan out.  Romney is abandoning causes of the religious right, as expected.  But it’s a bit soon, because he will want their support in his effort to eliminate the EPA.  Will they still turn out to vote for him, knowing that they are being used and he is not really going to be  their champion?
