Trump Risks Losing Suburban Women Over Abortion

Abortion is the most powerful issue driving suburban women who could decide the presidential election. Now President Biden is trying to harness that energy, while Donald Trump is looking to redirect it.

A recent Wall Street Journal poll of seven battleground states found that 39% of suburban women cite abortion as a make-or-break issue for their vote—making it by far the most motivating issue for the group. Nearly three-quarters of them say the procedure should be legal all or most of the time, and a majority thinks Trump’s policies are too restrictive.

Abortion has been top of mind for voters since the 2022 Supreme Court decision eliminating federal protections for the procedure, which unfurled a messy patchwork of state laws across the country.

Those moves are reverberating in the suburban areas where women helped deliver the White House to Trump in 2016 and swung it to Biden in 2020.

Trump, meanwhile, has struggled to find his footing on the issue. While he has repeatedly bragged about the 2022 decision, saying Friday, “We broke Roe v. Wade,” he has also sought distance by saying decisions should be made by the states. But the Arizona ruling underscored the risks with that strategy: After initially saying it was a state issue, Trump later said the Arizona court had gone too far and that the governor and state legislature should “remedy what has happened.”


No wonder Republicans are running away from the issue. Even Conservatives like Kari Lake are disavowing the Arizona abortion ban ruling.

I hope the Biden campaign keeps hammering away at the fact that Trump has to take responsibility for the SC decision to overturn Roe vs Wade.

Seventy-five percent of "suburban women" think that abortion should be available "all or most of the time," and "Trump's position is too restrictive."

Poppycock. "All or most of the time," is like saying "injured or killed."

What is Trump's position on abortion? Ask those who responded to the poll.

Trump's position is that it should be decided by the States, according to their own best judgment. WOW, WHAT A RADICAL CONCEPT!!!!!

What is a "suburban woman"? My concept is a married woman, living in the suburbs. I suspect their definition is quite a bit different.

I warned you all the day the RvW ruling was released. This was by design to hurt Trump.
 
Nope. The real issue right now is whether an orange crook can ride a massive lie to the presidency.
It doesn't matter, since we all know that "Trump being a steadfast and honest person" will naturally decline votes coming from women who are pro-abortionists.
