Abortion Polls & If Roe Goes Down, Will It Hurt Republicans?

These poll results are from a story in today's LA Times. It argues that if Roe goes down, Republicans will be in trouble. That may be. But there has to be a better way than that!!

If Ax Falls on Roe, It May Also Split GOP

"A May survey of registered voters by Quinnipiac University in Hamden, Conn., found that 55% believed abortion should be legal in all or most cases — including 6 in 10 independents and more than a third of Republicans.

Another May survey, conducted for NBC News and the Wall Street Journal, found that 55% of adults believed the matter should be left up to a woman and her doctor. The margins of error for each poll were 3 and 3.1 percentage points, respectively."
