We should all be proud of Kansas as this Red State protected women’s rights and sent a resounding message to the nation.
Kansas voted to stop the American Taliban.
The polls made it seem that those wanting to change the Kansas constitution to control women’s bodies were close or biased to those who could only be called the American Taliban. That would not be the case. It was not even close.
As things stand in the Co/efficient poll shared with FiveThirtyEight, 47% of the more than 1,500 voters sampled support the so-called “Value Them Both” amendment, and 43% are against it. The remaining 10% are undecided.
Of voters ages 18 to 34 strongly, 75% oppose the amendment and 52% Kansans ages 35 to 44 also opposed it. The majority of those ages 45 to 54 55 to 64 and 65 and up supported the amendment, with 52%, 51% and 50% in support respectively.
There is an important message here. The poll is not just wrong. It isn’t very good because it is clear the modeling does not understand what the electorate looks like in a chaotic time where many are under duress.
Democrats and Progressives must understand that while we want to talk about the economy, student loans, and other important issues, there is a lot of time to discuss that after getting elected.
The vote in Kansas was the visceral fear of women losing their agency, and the number of people who came out to vote proved it. Recently, Donny Deutsch made a statement many Progressive don’t particularly like, scare voters to the polls. Do whatever is necessary to get folks up and vote. That is what dozens of women’s organizations did in Kansas.
The polls are off. The modeling of what makes a likely voter is wrong. This election can make history if Democrats and Progressives go for the jugular.
