Republicans Face New Midterms Challenge
According to a new ABC News-Ipsos poll, around 48 percent of registered voters would vote for a candidate who is going to support keeping abortions legal. Around 33 percent also said they would support limiting abortions except in cases where the mother’s life is at risk. In the meantime, around 18 percent said that this issue would not be affecting whom they choose to vote for.
According to the poll, 61 percent of Americans and 62 percent of registered voters expressed that abortions should be kept legal. Around 34 percent said that abortions should be restricted but legal in most cases, while only 30 percent believed that abortions should be illegal. Only 7 percent supported a complete ban on abortions.
Abortion has been a key issue in this midterm election and the Democrats in particular have been pushing for abortion rights especially since the Supreme Court overruled Roe v. Wade in June. This has limited abortion access in several states. However, despite all this, abortion rights don’t appear to be at the forefront of voters’ minds.
Instead, the poll showed that around 50 percent of responders were more interested in economic topics. In fact, 28 percent said the economy and 22 percent said inflation was the most pressing issue ahead of the midterm election. Only around 16 percent said that abortion issues should be the central issue for this election.
On the Republican side, around 73 percent think that either the economy or inflation are the key issues that they need to consider when deciding whom to vote for in the midterm election.
