A Glimmer of Hope: The GOP Has Overreached


Guys, Scissorhead Jimmy-T sends us a research note from Lake Research Partners that shows us that in swing states (the ones we MUST win in 2022/2024) that the Dobbs ruling —which overturned Row— has fired up women and others to get active:

Key Findings

Motivation and Turnout

Electorates in battleground states lean heavily in support of abortion rights. The Supreme Court’s decision to overturn Roe v. Wade runs counter to public sentiment in Arizona, Georgia, Pennsylvania, and Wisconsin where, like many states, access to safe, legal abortions – among other aspects of people’s reproductive healthcare – could cease to exist in the wake of the Supreme Court’s decision. This is key to picking up swing voters. In all four states, more voters identify as pro-choice1 than identify as Democrats.

Arizona

● Arizona voters support abortion by a 22-point margin. A solid 60% of Arizona likely voters either believe abortion should be legal and generally available and subject to only limited regulation (41%) or that regulation of abortion is necessary, although it should remain legal in many circumstances (19%).

● Just under two in five (38%) oppose abortion in all or most circumstances. Of those 38% of voters, 23% believe abortion should be legal only in cases of rape, incest, or to save the life of a pregnant person, and just 15% believe all abortions should be made illegal.

Georgia

  • ●  Georgia voters support abortion by a 10-point margin. Half (51%) of Georgia likely voters believe abortion should either be legal and generally available and subject to only limited regulation (31%) or that regulation of abortion is necessary, although it should remain legal in many circumstances (20%).
  • ●  Two in five (41%) oppose abortion in all or most circumstances. Of those 41% of voters, 29% believe abortion should be legal only in cases of rape, incest, or to save the life of a pregnant person, and just 12% believe all abortions should be made illegal.Wisconsin
  • ●  Wisconsin voters support abortion by a 19-point margin. Over half (58%) of Wisconsin likely voters believe abortion should either be legal and generally available and subject to only limited regulation (38%), or that regulation of abortion is necessary, although it should remain legal in many circumstances (20%).
  • ●  Nearly two in five (38%) oppose abortion in all or most circumstances. Of those 38% of voters, 25% believe abortion should be legal only in cases of rape, incest, or to save the life of a pregnant person, and just 13% believe all abortions should be made illegal.Pennsylvania
  • ●  Pennsylvania voters support abortion by a 14-point margin. Fifty-six percent (56%) of Pennsylvania likely voters either believe abortion should be legal and generally available and subject to only limited regulation (37%) or that regulation of abortion is necessary, although it should remain legal in many circumstances (18%).
  • ●  Two in five (41%) oppose abortion in all or most circumstances. Of those 41% of voters, 33% believe abortion should be legal only in cases of rape, incest, or to save the life of a pregnant person, and just 8% believe all abortions should be made illegal.

Now, this isn’t a slam-dunk and Democrats have the uncanny ability to snatch defeat from the jaws of victory, but this does show us that if we can keep the electorate focused on real issues (as opposed to culture wars) we have a chance. Gas prices are dropping, employment is up, and the fascists have overreached. Stay focused, and we can maybe keep these numbers to the final vote is counted.

    I wonder how many republican women will support the nullification of the 19th amendment. Shirley not all of them Jake.

    We’re out of step — Kate says all we need to do to ensure a glorious victory like 1994 and 2010 is to follow the DLC politician and the consultants and advisers who led us there.

    Hey, don’t be afraid, it’s okay — they’ll all get paid no matter what happens.
