A poll out today from the Trafalgar Group identified yet again how much radical pro-abortionists are costing their pro-abortion Democratic patrons.
For starters, we have the Trafalgar Group asking
Do you believe that publishing the home addresses of the five Supreme Court justices and calling for protests at their private homes is an acceptable way to protests the High Court’s upcoming decision on Roe v. Wade?
A whopping 76% said no, including 2/3rds that identified as Democrats! And, as Ed Morrissey of HotAir, wrote President Biden has not disavowed this action, nor did his outgoing Press Secretary Jen Psaki.
“How radical was Biden’s tacit approval of these protests?” Morrissey asks. “Only 21.4% of Democrats believe they are acceptable.”
The news get worse, for President Biden.
“A confidential memo to the America First Policy Institute prepared by Scott Rasmussen uses his existing national polling on the topic to conclude that overturning Roe creates a massive political problem for Democrats,” Morrissey writes. “It’s true that voters express support for keeping Roe, but only because they don’t have a firm grasp on what that means.”
“Seventy-seven (77%) of voters don’t know what overturning that decision would mean,” the memo explains, noting that 41% think it would make abortion illegal, and the other 36% aren’t sure of the impact. More importantly, though, a very large majority want those decisions made by themselves or their legislatures. “Sixty five percent,” the memo continues, “think abortion laws should be established by voters and their elected representatives.” Only 18% prefers “the status quo,” Rasmussen writes, which the draft Dobbs decision would eliminate. And 73% acknowledge that “there are two lives to consider” in abortion — “the woman’s and the unborn child.”
Incredibly good news but not a surprise to pro-lifers. We know the public does not have a grasp on the true legal dimensions of Roe (it essentially legalized abortion on demand throughout pregnancy) nor are they aware that if Roe is overturned, the issue goes back to the state legislatures.
Best yet, nearly three-quarters acknowledge that “there are two lives to consider” in abortion — “the woman’s and the unborn child.”
