Washington (AP) — New polls show an increasing proportion of Americans calling for abortion or women's rights as a government priority I found out that there is. The Supreme Court's decision to overturn the Roe v. Wade case, especially among Democrats and those who support access to abortion.

As the midterm elections approach, President Joe Biden and the Democrats will try to take advantage of the shift.

Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi said in her statement shortly after her decision, "the ballot has reproductive freedom in November." However, it is not clear whether this ruling breaks through to motivate these voters, or simply disappoints, due to the prevalence of pessimism and the myriad crises facing the country.

"It feels like a big setback," said 26-year-old Lauren Nelson of San Diego, who was worried about the environment in which her young niece grew up. She doesn't think midterm elections will change the course of the state. "I can't help but feel like there's not much I can do."

The Associated Press-NORC Center survey found that 22% of U.S. adults were in the government. One of the five issues we would like you to address is the free-form question, which mentions abortion or women's rights. For public relations research. This has more than doubled since December, when AP-NORC polls showed a marked rise in mentions of abortion, perhaps in anticipation of Dobbs' ruling on abortion for several years.

A new poll, including interviews conducted before and after the Supreme Court's decision, found that the priority of the issue soared after the decision.

The Dobbs ruling returned the abortion decision to the state, and last week the Republican governor and legislature moved to introduce or advance legislation to ban or reduce abortion.

A pre-judgment investigation showed that the majority of Americans who wanted the court to leave Roe unpopular. The majority of Americans generally support access to abortion, but many say there should be restrictions.

References to abortion are not specifically limited to Americans who support the right to abortion. Instead, polls show that abortion is almost equally designated as a priority by adults with strong opinions on both sides of the matter. Abortion is considered legal in all cases Third, abortion is considered illegal in all cases 1 in 10.

Arnestin Smith, 68, from Walkiegan, Illinois, said the Supreme Court's ruling to overthrow Law represents progress. This issue is currently one of her top priorities.

"I want to abolish and abolish abortion," she said. "We had to get up and say no."

Still, the most generous and most conservative views of abortion are about the same. It is important that you are likely to prioritize the issue. Historically, studies have shown that opponents of abortion are more likely to consider issues that are important to them than those who support access to abortion.

And a new poll found that references to women's rights were made almost exclusively by those who thought abortion should be legal.

According to polls, the percentage of women who prioritize abortion or women's rights is already higher than six months ago in pre-judgment interviews, in December. It was 21% compared to 9%. The next day it swelled to 37%. Mentions also surged among men, but the increase was concentrated in response to the ruling, increasing from 6% in previous interviews to 21% later.

Lyle Gist said he did not consider abortion a top priority a few years ago. The court's decision to overturn Roe is not surprising, but it makes it a big issue.

"I think this has a big impact," said 36-year-old Gist in Los Angeles. His gist believes that it has spillover effects, including a "mass outflow" of people migrating from abortion-banned states.

When an abortion was illegal in a small town in Louisiana in 1968, Anne Jones carried her pregnancy to maturity and gave up her daughter to her adoption. I did. Jones, 74, now living in Plano, Texas, is worried about what the Republicans will do next (such as birth management), and legislators like Texas Governor Greg Abbott said, "Women are responsible for their children. It's false that I don't want to inflict. " Even if she limits health and social services for women and children, she can afford to maintain.

"Texas politics went the wrong way," she said. She wants to see access to abortion become a national law, but she is skeptical about whether Biden and the Democrats can do so.

Polls show that these issues are becoming more and more important to Democrats, growing from just 3% in 2020 to 13% in 2021 and now to 33%. doing. In pre-judgment interviews, 18% of Democrats mentioned abortion or women's rights. That was after 42%.

Among Republicans, 11% have identified abortion or women's rights as a new poll priority, just from 5% who said it in December. Is increasing.

Stephen Lefemin, who protests outside of a planned parent-child relationship in Columbia, South Carolina, called Rho's reversal a "major benchmark," but lawmakers amended a constitution to protect the fetus. He said he needed to do more, such as pursuing.

"I want to see a law that is faithful to God's Word," he said.

Biden and the Democrats vowed to fight for access to abortion, but struggled to act in a rapidly split Senate in response to devastating opposition from the Republicans. Biden told reporters Thursday that he would support an exception to the filibuster rule that codified Law.

Roderick Hinton, who voted for Biden, said the court's decision was "inconsistent with today's times" and wanted to see the president move on to court reform. I am thinking. He was angry after the court overturned Roe — the older generation "screws" young Americans, including his two daughters.

Biden asked for a Supreme Court review after promising to do so on the campaign trail. This is a response to the rhetoric within the Democratic Party regarding the expansion of the court following the three conservative appointments of former President Donald Trump. The report, released last year, paid attention to proposals to expand courts and set deadlines.

"Their lifetime status is really crazy," Hinton said. "The court was neutral, but now it's political. Their personal beliefs are well established."
