House polls show the midterm election shifted to Democrats after the Supreme Court ousted Roe. Abortion is the number one negative issue for Republicans on the battlefield
From a DCCC mid-election memo provided to PolitcusUSA:
DCCC’s own data shows Republicans’ extremist regressive positions on Access Abortion remains the number one test negative in battlefield surveys. About the mapin every region of the country and with every community in our base and Conviction groups put Republicans on the wrong side of the electorate.
In nearly thirty DCCC campaigns since the Supreme Court’s heinous Dobbs decision Polls, GOP attacks abortion registry access as highest test negative. and There’s no question why: MAGA Republicans hold extremist views like Yesli Vega (VA-02), who pointed out that women are unlikely to become pregnant from rape, no Exception Republicans like Amanda Adkins (KS-03), Bo Hines (NC-13) and Rep. Don Bacon (NE-02), the 184 incumbents and 38 challengers MAGA Republicans who supported overthrowing Roe, and the majority who voted against anchoring a freedom of choice for women.
Additionally, draconian state laws targeting doctors and punishing sexual assault survivors, criminalizing abortion, and delegating private individuals to interfere in people’s lives are a chilling consequence of Republican extremism, and voters reject it.
The Supreme Court majority may have screwed up the midterm election for the Republicans
The Supreme Court majority changed the midterm election when it broke precedent and toppled Roe. Abortion isn’t just the biggest negative issue for Republicans. It’s also a driver for getting Democrats and independents to the polls to vote.
Republicans tended to do better in midterm elections because they tend to be lower-turnout elections, and the Republican base has historically been more reliable when it comes to voting in non-presidential elections, but that could change.
The Democrats won the 2018 halftime and the 2020 election. Democratic voters show they can be just as issue-driven as Republicans.
Conservatives on the Supreme Court have given non-Republican base voters a problem, and the result could be a red wave that morphs into a slight shade of blue.
