Democrats Panic over Fears Trump’s Abortion Pivot Could Lead to Victory in November

Democrats are reportedly panicking amid mounting concerns that President Donald Trump’s recently declared position on abortion could help him secure a victory in the critical November presidential election.

Trump’s recent pivot to the middle on abortion has angered some pro-life conservatives.

However, it has Democrats worried that he may disarm one of their most potent political talking points.

Democrat President Joe Biden’s campaign is eager to paint Trump as an anti-abortion “extremist.”

Biden, meanwhile, is struggling to win voters on other key issues, including crime and the economy.

This week, Trump threw a wrench in Biden’s narrative by rejecting calls for a national abortion ban.

Instead, Trump said the issue should be decided by the states.

Some Democrats acknowledge that Trump’s embrace of a laissez-faire position on abortion could help him win moderate voters.

“If the election were held today, Trump would win and that means he’s winning moderates over as we speak,” one Democrat strategist acknowledged to The Hill. 

Since Roe v. Wade was overturned by the Supreme Court, the abortion backlash has already paid dividends for Democrats in the last election cycle.

Despite Trump’s shift, Biden is determined to keep abortion at the top of voters’ minds.

Biden got something of a lifeline when, just one day after Trump’s abortion statement, the Supreme Court of Arizona revived an abortion ban from 1864.

Trump said the ruling went “too far,” but the Biden campaign has already pounced with a splashy ad buy in the swing state.

The vehemence of Biden’s abortion rhetoric can perhaps be explained by his rather dismal re-election prospects.

Meanwhile, a sobering inflation report Wednesday poured cold water on Biden’s claims of an economic miracle.

Most Americans have nostalgia for the pre-Covid economy, when prices were much lower, and the comparatively calm border situation under Biden’s predecessor.

“The thing that’s most alarming is that people know this guy and even though they’re turned off by him, they’re willing to accept his flaws because they think he’d handle these issues better than Biden has,” the Democrat strategist said.

Democrats are working in a number of states, including Arizona, to put abortion on the ballot in hopes of driving turnout.

In the meantime, Biden has continued to claim that Trump wants to ban abortion at the federal level despite Trump’s embrace of a states’ rights position.

The Biden campaign released a breathless statement Wednesday about Trump’s “plan” for a national ban.

Team Biden blamed Trump for “suffering and chaos” in Arizona.

The comments come despite Arizona being heavily impacted by Biden’s border crisis.
