Note: These are UNDECIDED voters
Commissioned by the Susan B. Anthony List, the polling company, inc./WomanTrend surveyed 620 likely voters in four swing states September 18-19, 2012. Only registered voters who stated that they were both 1) “definitely” (89%) or “probably” (11%) voting in the upcoming elections for U.S. President and Congress and 2) were not solidly committed to either Mitt Romney or Barack Obama were polled.
The number of interviews in each of the four states was as follows:
Wisconsin 161 (26%)
Florida 155 (25%)
Ohio 153 (25%)
Virginia 151 (24%)
Once swing voters learn about President Obama’s extreme record on Born-Alive legislation they turn away from him.
President Obama’s record of opposing equal treatment and constitutional protections for babies born alive after a failed abortion (opting to leave these babies to die without proper medical attention) negatively influenced a majority of swing voters.
54% of swing voters said they would be less likely (35% much less likely) to vote for President Obama after learning that he voted against a law to give equal treatment and constitutional protections to babies born alive after a failed abortion.
The president’s record on the Born-Alive issue costs him support even among his supporters: Nearly half (49%) of voters leaning towards voting for President Obama said they would be less likely to do so after learning about his record.
