In case you missed it, WMUR reported that a new poll from the St. Anselm College Survey Center shows support for reproductive healthcare is the motivating factor for the vast majority of likely voters in New Hampshire.
Out of the nearly 2,000 Granite Staters who participated in the poll, 71% identified as pro-choice. In addition, 58% oppose the overturning of Roe v. Wade, and 60% of respondents say that abortion access will be an important factor in their voting decisions this November.
This is a tough break for Governor Sununu, who not only signed New Hampshire’s first modern abortion ban, but has been aligning himself with anti-choice candidates up and down the ballot and even out of state. With his already tanking poll numbers, this is another devastating blow for Sununu.
This is even worse news for the NH GOP led State House and Senate, who are set to propose even more extreme legislation aimed at eliminating reproductive rights if they retain their majorities in Concord.
In response, NHDP spokesperson Monica Venzke released the following statement:
“This poll shows what we’ve all already known — New Hampshire is a pro-choice state. Granite Staters want absolutely nothing to do with the NH GOP’s extreme anti-choice. We want a governor who is going to protect reproductive rights, and that is one of the many, many areas Sununu has failed us in.
The right to choose is a fundamental New Hampshire value, and this November, we’re going to turn out in droves to oust Republicans attacking that right.”
