By Dave Andrusko Editor’s note. Today’s reposting of a story that ran one year ago reinforces something we wrote about yesterday. CBS News touted that in its latest poll “Nearly two-thirds of Americans want Roe v. Wade kept in place.” We explained how the analysis of the survey missed all the truly important findings—all of …Continue reading "Rasmussen poll offers encouraging news on protection for abortion survivors, details public’s misunderstanding about Roe v. Wade"
By Dave Andrusko So how does CBS News headline its latest survey on abortion? “Roe v. Wade: Most support keeping it in place.” True, but fundamentally misleading, as we’ll discuss in a moment. What would be a headline that better captures the important findings? “Four in 10 Americans [42%] say the issue is so important …Continue reading "In spite of the spin, new CBS News survey holds very encouraging news for pro-lifers"
2019 results were hugely encouraging By Dave Andrusko Each year, typically in June (or at the very end of May), Gallup releases its most up-to-date assessment of where the American people are on abortion. With a presidential election coming up November 3 that will feature pro-life President Donald Trump against pro-abortion former Vice President Joe …Continue reading "What will newest Gallup poll tell us about abortion and public opinion?"
By Dave Andrusko I’ll do my best not to show even a tenth of how annoyed I am by two findings in particular from the latest Des Moines Register/ Mediacom Iowa Poll. The newspaper is relentlessly pro-abortion and that hostility to us permeates everything they write. I won’t belabor that because what would be the …Continue reading "How a poll can be accurate but totally misleading"
By Dave Andrusko On the 47th anniversary of Roe v. Wade, Gallup posted an interesting analysis of what it described as “Dissatisfaction With U.S. Abortion Laws at New High [58%].” For Lydia Saad, the biggest difference this year over last year goes like this: “On average from 2001 to 2017, about a quarter of U.S. …Continue reading "Looking much closer at Gallup’s new abortion polls tells us something very different than an initial reading would suggest"
By Dave Andrusko Not surprisingly, two new polls on abortion were made public today, the 47th anniversary of Roe v. Wade. We address them separately. The first is the 12th annual Marist Poll conducted for the Knights of Columbus; the second another tedious, misleading representation of the public’s stance on abortion from the Kaiser Family …Continue reading "New poll commissioned by Knights of Columbus shows continuing strong pro-life sentiment"
By Dave Andrusko As noted earlier today, we are posting separate stories on two abortion polls. The first, conducted by Marist for the Knights of Columbus, and the second, a poll taken by the Kaiser Family Foundation. Pro-abortionists will fasten onto the results to two dramatically misleading questions in the Kaiser poll: whether Roe v. …Continue reading "What’s right, but mostly wrong, about the Kaiser Family Foundation abortion poll"
By Dave Andrusko A big “ thank you” to readers who wrote me at firstname.lastname@example.org to talk about “As per usual, Pew Research bungles public opinion on abortion.” In a nutshell, Pew radically minimized the reach of Roe v. Wade (abortion supposedly legal only in the first trimester) as part of a question about whether …Continue reading "How to get the “correct” answers on questions about abortion"
By Dave Andrusko If a respected public opinion outlet makes the same tiresome and misleading representations about what Roe v. Wade legalized, you would think the only possibly explanations are (a) they are irremediably stupid, (b) deliberately misleading, or (c)indifferent. None reflect well on the Pew Research Center. Which brings us to Pew’s latest effort …Continue reading "As per usual, Pew Research bungles public opinion on abortion"
By Kristine Marsh A new poll from Rasmussen Reports reveals most American voters believe that journalists are more liberal than they are, and deserve scrutiny, despite fervent objections from The New York Times. There’s even more bad news for the liberal media: the majority also agreed President Trump’s attacks on the press were “appropriate.” According …Continue reading "Rasmussen: Majority of Likely Voters Agree Journalists Deserve Scrutiny, Criticism"
By Calvin Freiburger More than 130 music artists have joined forces with Planned Parenthood to protest the various pro-life laws advancing across the United States. “Musicians across the country are standing in solidarity with Planned Parenthood,” the abortion giant declares on its new “Band Together” page. “They’re saying access to sexual and reproductive health care …Continue reading "Planned Parenthood partners with music stars for new pro-abortion campaign"
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"
