    In this photo taken, Monday, Feb. 27, 2012, President Barack Obama speaks in the State Dining Room of the White House in Washington. It?s looking like President Barack Obama may be back in the good graces of women after a drop in approval from this critical constituency late last year. His standing with female voters has been strengthening, polls show, as the economy improves, the nation?s mood brightens and social issues become part of the nation?s political discourse.

    In this Feb. 7, 2012, photo, Karen Handel speaks during an interview in Atlanta. All of a sudden, abortion, contraception and gay marriage are at the center of American political discourse, with the struggling _ though improving _ economy pushed to the background. Social issues don?t usually dominate the discussion in shaky economies. But they do raise emotions important to factors like voter turnout. Then, as the GOP nomination fight churned with no resolution in sight, the economy began to grow. Unemployment rates dipped. And a cascade of cultural political developments inspired a new set of talking points for the year?s crop of political hopefuls such as supporters of Planned Parenthood, which provides abortion services, helped force the resignation of Susan G. Komen For the Cure executive Handel after the breast cancer research group cut grants to the organization, then reversed course. (AP Photo/John Bazemore)
