Several polls that have been released this weekend showing that, despite the media uproar, most Americans really don’t care much about the abortion issue.
On Friday, the U.S. Supreme Court issued its Dobbs decision that overturns the unconstitutional 1973 abortion ruling, Roe v. Wade. But, while the media has lost its tiny hive mind over the ruling, it appears that most Americans are not that interested in the whole thing.
In one Poll reported on by Fox News, only 15 percent of respondents said that Abortion was an important issue for them…
A USA Today/Suffolk University poll released Friday showed just under 15% of likely voters viewed abortion as the most important election issue headed into the November midterms. A majority of respondents, 62%, said abortion is an important issue but not the most important one.
Just 23% of voters viewed abortion as a more important election issue than the state of the economy, which 66% said was most important to their vote, according to the poll.
The Supreme Court’s decision overturning Roe may not change voters’ minds about voting in November, the poll suggests. Three out of four respondents to the poll said a SCOTUS decision overturning Roe would have no effect on their decision to vote in the November midterms, though 19% said it would make them more likely to head to the polls.
A second poll reported on by the Washington Examiner had even worse new for rabid abortion supporters. In its report, the paper found that only a tiny five percent felt abortion was an important issue.
Abortion, the No. 1 concern in today’s media and politics, ranks nearly dead last among areas voters care about as they struggle with paying daily bills, soaring inflation, and interest rate hikes, according to a just-released survey.
While the Supreme Court’s decision overruling the 1973 Roe v. Wade right to abortion has dominated today’s network and cable coverage, the latest McLaughlin & Associates poll said just 5% of voters call it a top concern.
Just below abortion, at 1%, is reviewing the 2020 election, over which the media are also obsessing.
“Only 5% said abortion was top issue. That might change a little, but not with people who can’t afford food or gas or rent or medical bills,” said pollster John McLaughlin, referencing the court’s decision today.
He also told Secrets, “This was no surprise. The decision was leaked a while ago. Most states will not change their laws. Biden’s handlers are desperate to change the subject from the imploding economy.
This is all tremendously bad news for Democrats who seem to expect the aborting issue to help them in the elections coming up in November.Commentary
