    Carly Fiorina had better hope that supporters who differ from her on the pro-choice question don't care enough about it not to vote for her.

    A whopping 71 percent of California voters are pro-choice, according to a recent Field Poll, meaning that the fierce debate which still grips much of America is pretty much a settled question in the state that's moved on to marriage equality and marijuana decriminalization as wedge issues.

    And in what may be some bad news for former Hewlett-Packard CEO and Republican senate candidate Carly Fiorina, who unlike a majority of her supporters is anti-choice.

    Fiorina is on the record as wanting to overturn the landmark Supreme Court decision Roe v. Wade, which made legal, safe pregnancy terminations an option for many women across the country.

    In a statement to the San Francisco Chronicle, a Fiorina spokesperson said that the candidate's "views on this issue are a result of her personal life," and not a political calculation.

    Naturally, among voters who indicated they would be voting for Democratic candidates in the November election, 80 percent supported a woman's right to choose.

    Jackson West would rather not return to the stone age.
