A new ABC News/Ipsos poll found that voters would choose a candidate who favors keeping abortion legal over one who favors limiting abortion except to protect the mother’s life by 49% to 27% with another 22% saying it wouldn’t matter.
In a memo to campaigns and allies, the House Democratic campaign arm says that internal polls from more than 20 frontline and target congressional districts show that Republican attacks on abortion access register as “the top testing negative” since the Supreme Court’s decision to overturn Roe v. Wade, NBC News reports.
GOP Lawmaker Warns Abortion Will Hurt Party
Rep. Nancy Mace (R-SC) warned that Republicans could pay a price in November if they don’t reel in extreme takes on abortion policy, Politicoreports.
Said Mace: “I am staunchly pro-life. I have a 100 percent pro-life voting record. I do think that it will be an issue in November if we’re not moderating ourselves, that we are including exceptions for women who’ve been raped, for girls who are victims of incest and, certainly, in every instance where the life of the mother is at stake.”
She added: “Somewhere in the middle is where we’ve got to meet.”
