After the publication of Justice Samuel Alito’s Supreme Court draft opinion that overturned Roe V. Wade, the media exploded. Push polling is one method they use to do this.
Take a look at the latest Morning Consult poll by Politico. 53% believe Roe should be upheld. The evidence is overwhelming to support the assertion that Americans don’t fully understand Roe.
This topic can be explored through the question “Does the issue of abortion need to be protected under the constitution?” This clearly demonstrates the realities of the choices voters have to make.
Morning Consult poll reveals that 41% of voters believe it is important to vote in the 2022 midterms for someone who supports abortion access. This includes Dobbs-v. Jackson Women’s Health.
Why are pollsters asking vague questions about abortion when they can ask specific questions that will accurately gauge public opinions on the topic? Pollsters won’t have to guess.
These simple questions are:
Are you in favor of the Democratic Party’s efforts to legalize abortion in all nine months of pregnancy in all 50 States of America?
Are you in favor of the Democrats’ efforts against states passing laws banning abortions after viability?
Are you in favor of the Democrats’ efforts against states passing laws banning sex-selective abortions?
Would you support the Democrats’ efforts in repealing existing laws that require parental notification for minors?
Are we in agreement? Doctors have the right to perform abortions.
Are you in agreement with the Democratic Party’s attempts to strip medical professionals of their conscience rights, and force them to take part in abortion procedures?
Democrats, including President Joe Biden, want to repeal Hyde Amendment in order for the federal government to fund abortions using taxpayer funds.
Do you agree or disagree with the Biden administration More abortions are needed to reduce poverty, increase participation in the labor market, and improve the economy.
In the past, Republicans tried to pass a 20-week limit on abortion. Is this reasonable?
Both Mississippi and Florida have Republican governors that have signed laws restricting legal abortion for the first 15 weeks.
Politico asked about whether women could face prison sentences for having an abortion. Texas does not exempt women who commit homicide.
It is clear that American attitudes toward abortion are complicated and sometimes contradictory.
