Most Arizona voters want at least some restrictions on abortions, a new Arizona Public Opinion Pulse poll conducted by OH Predictive Insights found.
While the poll found that 42% of voters said that abortion should be legal under any circumstance, that wasn’t the majority opinion. Rather, most people thought that there should be restrictions on abortion. The poll found that 11% of people said that abortion should always be illegal. Meanwhile, 47% said that abortion should “be legal only under certain circumstances.”
The poll doesn’t specify these circumstances, but circumstances that fall under this category would include exemptions for rape, incest, the life of the mother, as well as various gestational limits — be it a ban after six weeks, the first trimester, 15 weeks, 20 weeks, or the second trimester.
OH Predictive Insights says that there has been no statistically significant change in people’s opinion of abortion since Roe v. Wade was overturned.
The poll found that many voters found that 65% of Democrats say that the overturning of Roe v. Wade will make them more likely to vote this upcoming November; the decision allows individual states to have greater control over their abortion laws, including setting gestational limits before 20 weeks.
Additionally, the poll also found that 65% of Arizona voters say that a candidate’s position on abortion will be “impactful” on who they vote for this upcoming November.
“In a post-Roe America, abortion will continue to play an outsized role in Arizona’s political discourse,” OHPI chief of research Mike Noble said in a press release.
OHPI conducted the poll from July 5 to July 15, and surveyed 927 Arizona registered voters, giving the survey a margin of error of +/- 3.2%.
The $739 billion Inflation Reduction Act of 2022 being pushed through the U.S. Senate to be passed by reconciliation (50 votes plus the Vice President) before the upcoming August recess is a threat to America’s economy and the well-being of all Americans. The article above makes clear that Senator Kyrsten Sinema is the one Democrat vote that America is looking at. She alone can stop this legislation. Please contact her at her office locations in Washington, D.C. and in Arizona by phone and letter. Click the red TAKE ACTION link below for Senator Sinema’s contact information.
Although Senator Mark Kelly is a do-as -Chuck Schumer- tells-you-to-do partisan shill, contacting him may be helpful given his significant vulnerability in the November general election. His contact information is also found at the TAKE ACTION link below. We suggest that copying him on your letter to Senator Sinema may possibly have some impact on his voting behavior. Calling his office is also important – the staffs do score the relative positions of constituents and this too may influence the voting behavior.
