Polls don't reflect a move to the left after abortion decision

 Red States:

While pro-life individuals are celebrating a massive victory following the Supreme Court’s decision to overrule Roe v. Wade, Democrats have spent the last several days coping and seething.

One of the ways the radical left has attempted to self-medicate is by telling themselves that the abortion issue will somehow be an electoral winner in November. As the story goes, masses of voters will suddenly change sides, ignoring everything actually affecting their lives, in order to vote for Joe Biden’s party.

Sunday’s polling drop paints a different picture, though. Naturally, the president’s approval remains in the dumps. He hit a new high in disapproval in the CBS News survey

Biden at 40 percent approval is actually higher than a lot of other polls, but you always have to compare a poll to its prior iterations to see what the trends are telling you. CBS News/YouGov has been consistently kind to the president over the last year, and for him to drop to a new low in even a friendly survey is noteworthy. If Democrats were hoping for a late-game rebound, that’s nowhere to be found.

But it’s the breakdown of the issues that Americans care about that offers the most instruction. While Democrats hope to make abortion their biggest wedge issue for the mid-terms, it simply doesn’t register outside of diehards who made up their minds long ago.

Guess what happens when one side is running on an issue 82 percent of people rank as a top priority, while the other side is running on an issue that only 42 percent say is a top priority? The former wins every single time. Worse, for Democrats, some percentage of that 42 percent saying abortion is a top priority are pro-lifers, which does nothing to help their electoral chances–and actually works against it.

...

I think the number of people who think abortion is important to them is actually pretty low.  The hysterical also overlooks the fact that abortions were not outlawed by the court.  It will be up to the states whether they allow it and most blues states will.
