New Gallup Poll – One in Four Americans Believe Abortion is a Key Issue for Voters 

Jessica Nardi - 09 Jul 2020


A new Gallup poll reports that more pro-life Americans will not vote for candidates who support abortion and almost half of Americans consider abortion to be a key issue for voters.   

According to the poll, the number of Americans (24%) who consider abortion a threshold issue — meaning the candidate must share their views — has increased significantly from other years. It also says that “[t]hose who consider themselves pro-life are significantly more likely than their pro-choice counterparts to say they will vote only for a candidate who shares their views on abortion.”


This shows that American voters are concerned with protecting the dignity of life and how the nation’s government will protect both women and their preborn children.  

However, recent studies have also shown that although Generation Z has expressed great enthusiasm for civic activism, many young people are concerned about voting. 40% were concerned that their vote wouldn’t make a difference and another 40% that few candidates actually share their concerns for issues they are most passionate about.    

Making life issues a priority for voting is crucial. Students for Life’s president Kristan Hawkins gave 4 reasons to vote pro-life, including promoting Supreme Court justices to uphold the U.S. Constitution by overturning Roe v. Wade and Doe v. Bolton and upholding the Hyde Amendment so taxpayers are not forced to fund abortions.  

The harm done to women and babies through abortion has been evident and each day brings new information on how the abortion industry works to manipulate Americans — mothers, voters, & taxpayers — into believing killing and dismembering babies is a “right” they need to vote to protect.  It’s up to Americans to define their destiny, not Planned Parenthood or anyone else in the industry.  The Pro-Life Generation is thriving and ready to come together and stand when it counts.
