By Dave Andrusko In the first comprehensive survey since a surge of outrage over Democratic proposals for abortion on demand until birth and after, a Marist Poll released today shows a dramatic and substantive increase in pro-life attitudes and overwhelming opposition to post-20 week abortions. One pro-abortion website pointed to the influence of President Trump’s …Continue reading "New poll finds overwhelming opposition to post-20 week abortions, huge increase in pro-life self-identification"
70% of Residents Surveyed Consider Themselves Pro-Life NEW ORLEANS – A new poll has found that 70 percent of Louisiana residents consider themselves to be pro-life, and they do not believe taxpayer funds should be used to provide abortion. A survey of 1,180 likely 2019 General Election voters was commissioned by Louisiana Right to Life …Continue reading "New Poll shows Louisianans Overwhelmingly Supports Life"
Public adamantly opposes taxpayer funded abortions By Dave Andrusko Each year as we approach the anniversary of the awful Roe v. Wade and Doe v. Bolton decisions, we can always count on two pieces of good news. First, the colossal turnout of pro-life America in Washington, DC for the March for Life. Second, the annual …Continue reading "New Marist poll demonstrates overwhelming support for abortion limitations, including ban after 20 weeks"
By Dave Andrusko When you read Pew’s data/interpretation of abortion opinion, typically you reach one (or all) of three conclusions. First, they frontload their questions in a manner that guarantees the most support for legal abortion. Second, they state the stupendously obvious as if the conclusions were a revelation. Third, they ignore that there are …Continue reading "Another mish-mash Pew poll on abortion"
By Dave Andrusko I wrote my final post on the 2016 presidential elections on election day, the last of dozens and dozens of stories we ran about the titanic struggle between pro-life Donald Trump and pro-abortion Hillary Clinton. We are a week out from the 2018 midterms, so is there anything from what I wrote …Continue reading "What do our closing thoughts before the 2016 elections tell us about 2018?"
By Jonathon Van Maren Despite decades of activism and a near-complete takeover of the institutions of academia, the media, and the educational system, abortion activists have spectacularly failed to accomplish their goal of “normalizing” abortion and persuading people that feticide is like an appendectomy, but safer. The “ShoutYourAbortion” campaign flopped when it turned out that …Continue reading "Every attempt to normalize abortion fails. Here’s why"
By Dave Andrusko I sent a friend a rehash of a rehash of a rehash of a Pew poll on abortion which is, to be honest, rather embarrassing. Not because it plows the same territory, but because its furrows, as it were, are as crooked and off center as always. Moreover the balk—that is to …Continue reading "Digging deeper into another rehashed Pew abortion poll"
By Dave Andrusko Once upon a time, the Associated Press was rightly considered a reasonably objective news source. It is less so today, This is hugely important. With more and more newspapers facing a grim financial future, purchasing stories from the AP is a huge cost saver. For example when I was back home in …Continue reading "21 days out and has the media learned any lessons from 2016?"
By Dave Andrusko The closer we come to November 6, the more I am reminded of the immortal Yogi Berra, who once said, “It’s like déjà vu all over again.” Suddenly, Democrats are “surging” with three weeks to go before the mid-term elections. Not in the Senate, mind you, but in the House. Evidence? We’re …Continue reading "“Here they go again!” Inflated projections for pro-abortion Democratic candidates"
Republican women more enthusiastic than Democrat women By Dave Andrusko Granted the obvious caveat—polling numbers will change multiple times between now and November 6—NPR reported Wednesday that “Just over a month away from critical elections across the country, the wide Democratic enthusiasm advantage that has defined the 2018 campaign up to this point has disappeared, …Continue reading "Enthusiasm about November elections now just as high among Republicans as Democrats"
By Paul Stark A new Star Tribune-MPR News poll indicates that 59 percent of Minnesotans want Roe v. Wade kept in place. That’s a highly misleading and unreliable finding. Here’s the poll question: “Roe v. Wade was the Supreme Court decision that made abortion legal. Would you like to see that abortion law kept in …Continue reading "Poll of Minnesotans’ views on Roe v. Wade is highly misleading"
By Randy Hall Reporting on poll results might seem like an easy task, especially during a midterm election. However, Politico’s chief polling analyst Steven Shepard would benefit from revisiting the old adage that “there are lies, damn lies and statistics.” While reporting on the latest Politico/Morning Consult survey, Shepard stated that “one key demographic group …Continue reading "Politico Calls Dem Women ‘Turbocharged’ to Vote, But GOP Women Are Almost the Same"
