Contributing sentiments towards policy:

57% : The ballot question voters weighed in on Tuesday was largely seen as a referendum on abortion rights in the state with anti-abortion advocates backing the provision "while medical providers said the situation doesn't happen and only makes care of medically complicated pregnancies more difficult," according to The Daily Montanan.
53% : During past elections, Voss said, one of the GOP's strongest platforms was on abortion, allowing "them to hold together voters in areas where their economic policies, their more class-based policies, weren't doing them as much good."
49% : Kansans also backed abortion rights earlier this year, when nearly 60% of voters said they wanted to keep abortion protected under the state's constitution.
49% : The ballot question said the state government would be able to regulate abortion after fetal viability, typically between 22-24 weeks, "but not prohibit if medically neededto protect a patient's life or physical or mental health."More than 56% of Michigan voters supported protecting those rights under their state constitution.
49% :Abortion is legal in Montana through viability and the state Supreme Court has said the state constitution protects the right to end a pregnancy as part of the right to privacy.
48% :Michigan amendment backedIn Michigan, voters backed adding an amendment to the state constitution that would create a "new individual right to reproductive freedom, including [the] right to make andcarry out all decisions about pregnancy, such as prenatal care, childbirth, postpartumcare, contraception, sterilization, abortion, miscarriage management, and infertility."
47% :The federal law then defines "born alive" as "the complete expulsion or extraction from his or her mother of that member, at any stage of development, who after such expulsion or extraction breathes or has a beating heart, pulsation of the umbilical cord, or definite movement of voluntary muscles, regardless of whether the umbilical cord has been cut, and regardless of whether the expulsion or extraction occurs as a result of natural or induced labor, cesarean section, or induced abortion."
45% : Voting against the California ballot question wouldn't have eliminated abortion access in the state, since the state Supreme Court has ruled the state constitution's right to privacy includes reproductive choices like contraceptive use and abortion.
44% : "From Kentucky to Michigan to Vermont to California, Americans want their right to abortion protected."
41% : So Republicans are going to have to figure out how to adjust their policy demands to improve their electoral prospects in light of this quick change in the politics of abortion."
38% : Kentucky questionFifty-two percent of Kentucky voters rejected a ballot question that would have amended their state constitution to say that "To protect human life, nothing in this Constitution shall be construed to secure or protect a right to abortion or require the funding of abortion."
