60-40 NATION:

CNN Poll: America Becoming More Pro-Life, 58% Oppose All or Almost All Abortions (DAVE ANDRUSKO, SEP 14, 2015, LifeNews)
 
Sometimes what appears to be almost a throwaway line in a news story is important, not because it tells us something new (although it might) but because it acknowledges a truth which rarely sees the light of day.

First the backdrop for the results of a CNN poll released today.

The hook for the story is that three issues-"Guns, immigration, abortion"-are "increasingly important to voters." Our concern, obviously, is only the latter. What's the important oh-by-the-way line in the story?

Overall, 39% of adults in the new poll think abortion should be legal in most circumstances, 58% that it should be illegal in most.

Even though we have made that argument over and over and over again, ordinarily we read/hear about the "pro-choice" majority. In this case, CNN did its job.
