I'm not sure what the purpose of this post is. But, what it illustrates to me is that some people have an overarching issue, or bias, that transcends all others for them. In Susan Crown's case it seems to be Israel. For others it's a variety of issues. For example, pro-life or the flip side: pro-choice.

Such people, it seems will ignore, minimize, or excuse a candidate's stance on other issues that is in diametrically opposed to their own beliefs and interests. In Susan Crown's case apparently this includes pro-choice and gay marriage, which apparently she doesn't believe government should be involved in. But, in spite of this, she's become a cheerleader for the very party that does believe government should limit pro-choice and gay marriage, and, if not espousing downright prohibition—yet—is certainly taking forceful strides down that road.

Political parties exploit this vulnerability in people to try and turn them. In the case of Susan Crown, Romney's "Pro Israel 100%, right or wrong!" rhetoric Seems to have done the trick.
