CBS News Poll: Americans React to Row vs. Wade Reversal – Most Reject, Calling It Back
While Roe’s reversal has sparked strong sentiment, it’s not an issue that most Americans say has made them more or less likely to vote in the Middle Ages this year. But for those who are reporting a change in motivation at the moment, Democrats are more than twice as likely as Republicans to vote with a Supreme Court ruling.
And more Democrats are now motivated by the issue than they were before the decision. Fifty percent of Democrats report that the decision will make them more likely to vote, up from 40 percent last month, when a reversal of the roar was a possibility, but not yet a reality.

Ending the row is institutional suicide for the Supreme Court
It is no exaggeration to say that the abortion decision, written by Justice Samuel Alito and incorporated by four other conservatives, is one of the worst in court history.
Instead of a living constitution that protects freedom and equality from the tyranny of the majority, the court of Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health Organization declared a constitution that protects only those rights that already existed in the distant past. The majority found it irrelevant that those who upheld the basic constitutional provisions did not include women, whose rights are at stake in the Dobbs and whose equality has been violated by the judgment. According to the majority, the dead hand of the past rules over our constitutional future.

Many states with anti-abortion laws have a preferred majority
Will the purple state finally step in with the views of its voters?
We focus on options that ask whether respondents support a ban on abortion “in all or most cases” or keep it legal in all or most cases. This means that we exclude some polls that provide a vague middle ground on whether abortion should be legal in “certain circumstances”. We then use a dynamic multi-level regression with the post-certification model to extract as much information as possible from the data to ensure that we have accurate estimates for each state.
We have seen that most people in about 40 states support the right to legal abortion. Only 10 states have a majority that oppose abortion. In some of these red states, such as Louisiana and Arkansas, the abortion ban policy may be in line with the views of the majority of the public.

America’s middle class is deteriorating. Ro’s death will make it worse.
The Supreme Court’s decision on reproductive rights is set to deliver a blow that many in the middle class cannot afford..
The timing of a woman’s birth and her ability to plan the number of children depends on her financial situation and her family. Some claim that Women with resources or women with “rights” will be fine – They will only have to pay more for out-of-state abortions or pay illegal providers in the state where they live.
But it’s much more complicated, according to the experts I’ve talked to.
The high cost of required abortions in restricted and restricted states, Elizabeth Annat, a professor of economics at Bernard College, told me, “can save the savings of a middle-class family.”

What to tell our daughters
They should be afraid, but never give up
So when my daughter saw me crying yesterday Cry, She knew why. After hugging me and offering me more sensible words than most kids his age, he asked a question that broke my heart: “But I’ll be fine, okay?”
She knows she lives in a state where, for now, abortion rights are protected; She knows we have the resources to get the care she needs, a privilege many others do not have. She knows we have to fight for people who live in states where abortion has become illegal.
But that doesn’t mean she’ll always be fine, and I don’t have the guts to lie to her.

🧵— Row, the labs of dictatorial strategy (and how we fight it)
I hope this thread will change the way many of you look at politics in America today. And how you get involved.
This is a tweet version of my book, and the presentation I give almost every night. Read on:1 /
It starts with this slide.
Most people think that there is only one battle in politics in America. But I have come to the conclusion that the two sides are fighting such separate battles, in fact there are two battles. And for the most part, one side doesn’t see that reality.
2 /The Left often believes that democracy is intact, and that its political views are generally mainstream / popular, so its political battle is about election results.
Win elections based on your mainstream ideas, and you get what you want.
And because it is capable of pursuing its own goal of winning elections, it has been fighting for federal offices in federal swing states and districts for years.
When it wins those offices, the party celebrates by winning its political battle.
This is how the media usually covers American politics. That’s how Democrats, mostly independents, and even some Republicans think about politics.
So what is the battle on the other side?
Warning: This is a very different battle.

This is going to be a long thread, but an important one.
We need to talk about Roe’s overruling, what the GOP / dictatorial movement wants, and where we are going.
This is what I learned from writing The Midnight Kingdom and studying it all.
Yesterday we entered a new era, a backward moment in which the progress of the 20th century was openly attacked and a planned destruction of all our progress unfolded.
We have to understand the ideology and circumstances behind this movement.
