A new CNN poll shows that American voters who are enthusiastic about the upcoming midterm elections are happy that the Supreme Court will likely overturn Roe v. Wade.
There has been a tremendous national debate over abortion in response to a leaked draft opinion from the U.S. Supreme Court that overturns Roe v. Wade.
Some in the media suggest that overturning Roe would somehow dampen enthusiasm in a midterm election that most observers believe will be one that strongly favors Republicans and could see pro-life Republicans retake Congress from pro-abortion Democrats. In response, a CNN poll asked voters whether they are happy or angry about the nation’s highest court overturning a decision allowing abortion on demand.
The poll found voters most enthusiastic about the upcoming election to be happy the court is overturning Roe and abortions up to birth.
“As a Registered Voter Enthusiastic about the Midterm vote, will you be Happy or Angry if Roe v Wade is overturned?” CNN asked.
