Stay Focused On What Works

An analysis of eight USA Today/CNN/Gallop polls... shows a significant drop - - 8 percentage points - - in the number of people who say they support legal abortion under any circumstances.
The shift, seen in four polls since July 1996, coincides with the political debate over what opponents call "partial-birth" abortion, which is used in the last six months of pregnancy.
A majority ... in the most recent poll ... taken Jan. 16-18 still supports legal abortion: 23% in all circumstances. 58% in some situations. ...17% illegal in all circumstances....
Abortion-rights supporters say the issue has put them on the defensive....
[T]he greatest shifts are among: Democratic women, 40% supported abortion under any circumstances in 1994-95, compared to 26% in 1996-98. Liberals, 52% to 37%. Liberal-moderate Republican women, 40% to 25%.
