A new poll shows that abortion has wiped out many of the GOP benefits in the midterm elections, and Republican problems are getting worse.
Greg Sargent of The Washington Post summarized the results of the NY Times/Sienna Poll:
62 percent of registered voters oppose the Roe v. Wade annulment decision, while 30 percent support it.
52 percent of registered voters strongly oppose Roe’s decision to overturn, compared to just 19 percent who strongly support it
57 percent of women strongly oppose the statement, compared to 15 percent who strongly support it
62 percent of voters are in favor of keeping abortion mostly or mostly legal, compared to just 31 percent who think it should be illegal most or all of the time.
Analysis: Republicans fail to bring the political conversation back to the economy and inflation
Republicans built their entire campaign around Biden, the economy and inflation and have been unable to adjust their strategy because the political landscape has changed. Senator Lindsey Graham’s proposed national abortion ban has only worsened the situation, as Republican candidates are now being asked to support Graham’s bill.
Democrats in Congress stood in front of the White House in response to Roe’s overthrow, and they have consistently outperformed Biden’s approval ratings.
With nearly two months to go until Election Day, Republicans are trying to hold out. There is no red wave. If Republicans take back the House, their majority will be smaller than expected, and Democrats look good to maintain or expand their majority in the Senate.
By overthrowing Roe, the Supreme Court’s conservative majority has awakened elected voters and reformed the midterm elections.
