Contributing sentiments towards policy:

47% : But they should: in the video, Trump said that he's "proudly the person responsible" for the Dobbs decision.
44% : "Trump, essentially, wants to have it both ways: he wants credit for Dobbs, while also ignoring its consequences and casting Democrats as extremists.
38% : After all, it's thanks to Trump -- who appointed three of the five Supreme Court justices who overturned Roe -- that 14 states have enacted almost total bans on abortion.
34% : Trump took credit for overturning Roe and said he wants to leave abortion rights "to the states," seemingly rebuking prior reporting that he'd support a 16-week national ban if re-elected.
34% : (Trump didn't specifically say what he'd do if Congress passed a national ban and sent it to his desk as president).
34% : Ultimately, Trump didn't announce anything new today -- he just affirmed what we already know: abortion rights are currently left to the states, he won't take ownership of the confusion and mayhem that Dobbs has wrought, and he'll keep spreading false information about abortion.
33% : As Ammar Moussa, the director of rapid response for President Biden's re-election campaign, pointed out in a post on X: "Donald Trump is endorsing every single abortion ban in the states, including abortion bans with no exceptions.
33% : Polling has showed voters don't necessarily hold Trump responsible for overturning Roe.
28% : By "execution after birth," it's unclear what Trump was referring to (we asked his campaign), but it's likely he's talking about a procedure that's already outlawed at the federal level.
26% : Donald Trump wants to pretend he isn't to blame for the devastating consequences of overturning of Roe v. Wade -- even as he boasts about being responsible for the momentous Supreme Court decision.
23% : Trump also failed to acknowledge that abortion opponents, including many Republicans, are currently seeking to dramatically restrict access to medication abortion at the Supreme Court, and have also floated invoking the Comstock Act -- a 19th-century anti-obscenity law that remains on the books -- to enact a federal ban on abortion.
17% : Marjorie Dannenfelser, president of the anti-abortion group Susan B. Anthony Pro-Life America, said the organization is "deeply disappointed in President Trump's position.""Saying the issue is 'back to the states' cedes the national debate to the Democrats," Dannenfelser said in the statement.
16% : But listening to Trump, you wouldn't know any of this: he tried to cast Democrats as extremists through a litany of lies:He claims "all legal scholars, [on] both sides, wanted and, in fact, demanded" Roe be overturned.
