Contributing sentiments towards policy:

46% : DeSantis rushed home from Ohio to sign the bill, delivering a major victory for anti-abortion activists who are an influential part of the GOP's voter base.
42% : A Pew Research survey from last year found that 62% of American adults want abortion to be legal in all or most cases.
41% : To beat Trump, DeSantis needs to win over a good portion of the sizeable group of Republicans who are ardently anti-abortion.
39% : Yet polls show that most Americans want abortion to be legal, making the issue highly problematic for Republicans in a general election.
33% : The new law criminalizes abortion illegal after six weeks of pregnancy, with exceptions for incest, rape and human trafficking.
33% : Democrats were certain to make abortion a major issue in the 2024 election, but with DeSantis they now have something concrete to point to in his record to argue he is too extreme on the issue.
30% : It is a dramatic shift from the current standard - approved just last year - that makes abortion illegal after 15 weeks of pregnancy.
