NARRATIVE SHIFT: Marist Poll Shows 17 Point Swing For Pro-Life Position
Looks like leftists picked the wrong time to go all in on infanticide (see WATCH: Virginia Governor Has NO REGRETS for Pro-Infanticide Comments and Rabid Pro-Abortion Woman Refuses to Condemn Virginia Governor’s Infanticide Comments on Tucker Carlson’s Show). Or, maybe them going all in is how we got this poll. Just as many Americans identify as pro-life as pro-choice.
The poll found Americans are now as likely to identify as pro-life (47%) as they are pro-choice (47%). Last month, a similar Marist survey found that Americans were more likely to identify as pro-choice than pro-life 55% to 38%, a 17-point gap.
The survey also found that 80% of Americans support abortion being limited to the first three months of pregnancy, an increase of 5 percentage points since last month's Marist poll.
It's the first time since 2009 that Marist has seen numbers like this swing for the pro-life position. Though the reason why may shock and awe you:
Democrats, specifically those under the age of 45, seem to be leading the shift: This month's poll found 34% of Democrats identify as pro-life vs. 61% pro-choice. Last month, those numbers were 20% and 75% respectively.
Among Americans under 45, 47% identify as pro-life vs. 48% pro-choice. In January, those numbers were 28% and 65% respectively.
So about the same time Democrats pull the lever for infanticide, a chunk of Democrats decide they no likey.
Leftists have made it clear they are the in the pocket of Big Abortion. At one point I think Nancy Pelosi even called abortion a sacrament for Democrats. Or maybe she said it with her overly stretched eyes. We're led to believe by media that the younger generation gets more and more progressive. Yet, at least according to this poll, that younger generation isn't about all the abortions all the time, as the Democrat party has become. Turns out even some Democrats aren't keen on killing infants. Maybe there's hope after all.
I'd be curious to poll what other Democrat sacred cows people under the age of 45 are turning away from. Who wants to poll socialism next?
