23% : Trump then blamed the GOP failing to meet its expectations in the 2023 midterm due to the "abortion issue" and started slightly softening his position from his previous statements, reportedly discussing a 15- or 16-week abortion ban, shortened from the 20 weeks he had previously advocated for.
20% : Harris calling out Trump comes as the former president appears to be carving out distance between himself and anti-abortion policies.
17% : He also released a statement opposing the Arizona ban.Democrats, including President Biden, have accused Trump of lying as he attempts to avoid the political fallout of being associated with strict anti-abortion policies, which consistently poll as extremely unpopular among voters.
