By Dave Andrusko A new national poll released today adds another brick to the foundational truth that Americans are much closer to pro-lifers than pro-abortionists and are strongly opposed to the Democrats’ position that treatment for abortion survivors is up to the mother and the abortionist. The bulk of the report, which summarized three separate …Continue reading "Another national abortion poll show support for life"
By Dave Andrusko Leave it to the Washington Post/ABC News. While recent Gallup and Morning Consult polls find strong majorities that want abortion illegal in all circumstances or legal in only a few circumstances, the new joint poll supposedly shows “Support for legal abortion stands at its highest level in more than two decades according …Continue reading "Washington Post/ABC News poll steeply at odds with more reliably surveys of opinion on abortion"
By Nicholas Fondacaro Overnight, ABC News and The Washington Post released a poll that they probably didn’t want to see. According to their findings, President Trump’s job approval rating surged five points among “voting age Americans” to 44 percent since April, the highest their poll had ever uncovered. But, there was even better news for …Continue reading "ABC Hides Trump Approval Surge With Voters, Says He’s in Trouble"
By Dave Andrusko On the first day of NRLC 2019, South Carolina Gov. Henry McMasters told a wildly enthusiastic luncheon gathering that “I believe time and history is on our side.” A very recent Gallup poll lends weight to the governor’s declaration. Never mind the misleading headline– “Majority in U.S. Still Want Abortion Legal, With …Continue reading "“I believe time and history is on our side”"
More single-issue pro-lifer voters By Dave Andrusko What a coincidence. Three days ago we wrote about “A case study in misleading abortion polling results.” The lead sentence was “If there is any inviolable rule of thumb vis a vis abortion polls, it’s that you have to dig deep and read carefully.” Talk about timing. Today …Continue reading "Latest Gallup poll shows strong increases in pro-life sentiment"
By Dave Andrusko If there is any inviolable rule of thumb vis a vis abortion polls, it’s that you have to dig deep and read carefully. I give you a Morning Consult poll conducted May 28-30. If you read just the first seven pages, you would think the poll finds majority support for abortion in …Continue reading "A case study in misleading abortion polling results"
By Dave Andrusko As someone who has done his small part in trying to educate the American public, I genuinely appreciate a good headline that captures 46 years of misunderstanding. Recently Rasmussen Reports ran a story headlined,” FEW VOTERS UNDERSTAND ROE V WADE RULING; OR WHAT OVERTURNING IT WOULD MEAN.” While the brief story doesn’t …Continue reading "Rasmussen poll offers encouraging news on protection for abortion survivors, details public’s misunderstanding about Roe"
By Dave Andrusko The abortion polls keep on rolling in. Today’s poll was conducted for NPR/PBS NewsHour by the Marist Polling company. The headline to the story is accurate, as far as it goes— “Poll: Majority Want To Keep Abortion Legal, But They Also Want Restrictions”—but there’s a long ways to go. Part of what …Continue reading "Not surprisingly NPR abortion poll misleading"
By Dave Andrusko Each year, Gallup presents what it calls its “Values and Beliefs poll,” which is simply asking people whether a given behavior is “morally acceptable” or “morally wrong.” Although she conspicuously does not point it out, in the story written by Gallup’s Megan Brenan we discover that the percentage of Americans who believe …Continue reading "Majority says abortion is morally wrong in latest Gallup. But far more say “having an abortion” is morally wrong in latest Pew survey"
By Dave Andrusko Kudos to John Sexton for cutting right to the chase: The Hill [newspaper] has exclusively released another Harvard CAPS/Harris poll, this one on the topic of abortion. The headline of the Hill piece is “Nearly half of Americans say Supreme Court should uphold Roe v. Wade.” That’s accurate but it overlooks the …Continue reading "New poll shows overwhelming opposition to infanticide & majority support to overturn or modify Roe"
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"
