Quinnipiac University Poll Shows Solid Support for Florida Ultrasound Measure, Opposition to Obama

By Dave Andrusko

Think about this for a second. Attempts to pass laws that give abortion-vulnerable women a last-chance to actually see the baby whose life hangs in the balance have come under withering assault on a variety of beside-the-point grounds.

Yet results released Thursday by the respected Quinnipiac University Poll found that 51% of Florida respondents approved of a bill that would require that women hear a description of what an ultrasound shows of their unborn baby, although they may decline to view the images. If the 1,499 voters surveyed March 29 through April 4, 44% disapproved of SB 1744.

But even more revealing is that women support the measure by a ten-point margin (53% to 43%), while men support the bill 48% to 46%.

There was one other very interesting clusters of answers.  The lead paragraph read, “President Barack Obama hits a losing trifecta with Florida voters: They disapprove 52 – 44 percent of the job he is doing; they prefer an unnamed Republican challenger by a too-close-to- call 41 – 38 percent in the 2012 presidential election and say 51 – 42 percent that the president does not deserve a second term, according to a Quinnipiac University poll released today.” 

As everyone knows, Florida is a pivotal important state in presidential elections.
