Poll Results Show Democrats May Be Doomed in Midterms Over Pro-Abortion Obsession

A recently released Scott Rasmussen National Survey from RMG Research, the results which were provided to Townhall, reaffirms the idea that it is time for Roe v. Wade to go, so that the abortion decision can be returned to the American people through their elected officials in state legislatures. 

This, according to polling, is actually the outcome voters want. For 65 percent chose "voters and their elected representatives," while just 18 percent chose "judges and courts" when it comes to who should decide the abortion issue. Seventeen percent were undecided.

In an op-ed for The Federalist, Scott Rasmussen, the president of RMG Research, Inc., explained the results further. He wrote:

Seventy-seven percent of voters mistakenly think [overturning Roe] would make abortion illegal in the United States. Forty-one percent simply don’t know what it would mean (36 percent). Just 22 percent have some understanding of the issue. If people don’t understand what overturning Roe would mean, how can you possibly interpret polling data showing that people don’t want it overturned?

To get a true sense of public opinion, it’s necessary to ask polling questions without D.C. political jargon. When you do that, it becomes clear that most voters will be okay with the result of overturning Roe.

With Roe in place, the abortion laws are set by judges. However, 65 percent of voters think abortion laws should be established by voters and their elected representatives. That’s exactly what will happen if Roe is overturned. Just 18 percent want to preserve the status quo.

If Democrats truly believed voters were with them on this issue, they would celebrate this triumph of democracy. Instead, they are outraged. Perhaps they recognize that overturning Roe will call their bluff and highlight the unpopularity of their policy desires.
