Poll: Most Americans Pro-Life

A new Gallup poll shows a stunning turn around in public opinion on abortion. The poll, taken May 7 – 10, 2009 shows that 51% of Americans are now Pro-Life and only 42% are Pro-Choice. Just one year ago, the number of people that reported being Pro-Life was just 44% while 50% said they were Pro-Choice. A look at the numbers shows an unmistakable trend to the right on abortion.

The numbers show that those who identify themselves as pro-choice and liberal have remained steady while those identifying themselves as conservative or moderate have made a major shift towards the pro-life side.

The main reason for the dramatic shift appears to be a backlash against the actions of President Obama. Since taking office, many of the policies in place under former President Bush have been rescinded such as overseas abortion funding (prohibited under Bush) and freedom of medical workers to refuse to assist in abortions. As the Obama administration tries to moves the country towards his socialist agenda, he is actually driving the majority of the country in the opposite direction.

This trend is a complete repudiation of those who believe like Colin Powell that the Republican Party should reject the conservative principals that are the cornerstone of the party. Republicans have not suffered defeats at the polls in recent years due to being too conservative, but rather because they tried to be too moderate. Voters were given a choice between Democrat and McCain’s Democrat Lite. People opted for the real thing.

This poll proves that the conservatives have the right message and need to stick to it. And the Republican Party would do well to consider the mood in America and embrace the ideals that Ronald Reagan cherished and believed in to give voters a clear vision and a clear choice.

The poll results are available on the Gallup website.

Nothing is more conservative than a republican wanting to get their majority back. And nothing is more liberal than a republican WITH a majority.
