NARAL points to new poll: New Poll: GOP Rhetoric On Abortion Is Hurting The Party With Independent Voters In Swing States

A new poll conducted by Greenberg Quinlan Rosner, on behalf of NARAL Pro-Choice America, of self identifying independent voters in swing states shows that the positions and statements the leading Republicans candidates are taking on abortion is making independent voters those states less likely to support them.

The poll, released ahead of tonight’s GOP debate, highlights a critical bloc of voters who strongly support abortion rights and reject the anti-choice positions of Republican presidential contenders.

Even a position allowing for exceptions fails to bring anti-choice candidates into alignment with independent voters on the issue of abortion; Donald Trump and Jeb Bush’s anti-choice position of exceptions only in cases of rape, incest and life of the woman is more likely to incite blowback from these voters than to earn support, by a double-digit margin.

The Pro-choice America presser notes that “The poll highlights a critical bloc of voters who strongly support abortion rights and reject the anti-choice positions of Republican presidential contenders. While abortion will not be the only issue these independent voters consider as they make their voting decision for President, it is certainly one that can have electoral consequences for anti-choice Republicans…”

“Our message to the GOP is, keep digging,” said Sasha Bruce, Senior Vice President of Campaign and Strategy at NARAL Pro-Choice America. “Every time one of these candidates open their mouth about abortion they only further alienate key voting blocs needed next fall.  We know 7 in 10 Americans support abortion rights. Yet the Republican candidates, and their friends on the Hill, seem to be in a race to the bottom to see who can take the most extreme and out of touch position. Keep at it guys. Because we’re going to make you own these positions in the fall.”
