Seeing a strong public interest in abortion and the possible Alito 5 possible ‘Right’s assault….
Democrats across the nation seem poised to make sure Republicans have to carry an unpopular High court ruling on their backs…..
As we saw in the Kansas referendum vote….
Even in Red states Republicans could have trouble on the issue….
Democrats need every ‘wedge’ issue they can find….
New York Times: “All across America, Democrats are using abortion as a powerful cudgel in their 2022 television campaigns, paying for an onslaught of ads in House, Senate and governor’s races that show how swiftly abortion politics have shifted since the Supreme Court overturned Roe v. Wade in late June.”
“With national protections for abortion rights suddenly gone and bans going into effect in many states, senior White House officials and top Democratic strategists believe the issue has radically reshaped the 2022 landscape in their favor. They say it has not only reawakened the party’s progressive base, but also provided a wedge issue that could wrest away independent voters and even some Republican women who believe abortion opponents have overreached.”
