REPUBLICAN: President Trump is the most anti-abortion president we’ve ever had.
DEMOCRAT: Every Democratic presidential candidate supports unrestricted, taxpayer-funded abortion throughout the entire 9 months of pregnancy.
POLL: A new Knights of Columbus/Marist Poll conducted Jan. 7-12, 2020 contains very bad news for 2020 Democrats. It also identified how relatively useless the terms “pro-choice” and “pro-life” are.
- A majority (65%) said they are more likely to vote for candidates who support abortion restrictions.
- A majority (65%) support limiting abortion to the first three months of pregnancy. This group included 44% of those who identified as Democrats, as well as 62% of the Independents, and 88% of the Republicans.
- A majority (62%) support for Roe v. Wade being overturned by SCOTUS so that the issue would return to the states. This group included 39% of those who identified as Democrats.
- A majority (60%) oppose domestic taxpayer funding of abortion.
The poll also demonstrated how useless the terms pro-choice and pro-life are.
