Pro-Choice Advocate John Fetterman Jumps Another 12 Pts In Recent Poll

John Fetterman's strongest moment in the last PA Senate debate in Carlisle was his strong advocacy for reproductive rights, the Right to Choose, a woman's right to control her own body and reproductive destiny. In todays's swirling SCOTUS controversy over Roe vs Wade, those comments are ever more timely and important.

John Fetterman used the word 'sacred' and also suggested that a 'Right to Choose' position should serve as a litmus test for all judicial selections. There was a time when the idea of judicial litmus tests regarding pro-choice was considered over-the-top, hysterical. At least, that's what I recall the opposition shouting.

I suspect few would consider anything over-the-top after yesterday's first-draft disclosure of stripping away a 50-year precedent.

In any case, John Fetterman has again jumped ahead of the pack in a new F&M poll:

Mr. Fetterman, Pennsylvaniaís lieutenant governor, leads U.S. Rep. Conor Lamb 53% to 14% in the new poll, which surveyed 357 registered Democrats from April 20 to May 1. State Rep. Malcolm Kenyatta registered in third place at 4%, with Jenkintown Councilwoman Alex Khalil trailing the pack at 1%.

This represents a 12-point bump for Mr. Fetterman since the last F&M poll, conducted in early April when he was at 41%. In that time frame, Mr. Lamb dropped 3 points and Mr. Kenyatta didnít move the needle.


Conor Lamb has complained about the poll's small sampling number (357) which is reasonable considering he's running a distant second. With a mere two weeks in the primary race, I'm guessing John Fetterman is smiling (cautiously), not only by the spread but by his increased approval numbers (67% among registered Dems).

We're almost there!

4. With PA Democratic primaries decided, some PA Dems may choose to vote in the GOP Primary

Because it is pleasurable to vote - twice in the same year perhaps - against Dr. Oz, Mastriano, and a local GOP Congressman.

Just sayin'.

Better hurry though. I think party registration must be changed 10 days before the May 17 primary.

On Edit: The last day for changing party registration for the primary was May 2nd, 2022. So too late now. I should not rely on memory.

Personally? I just can't do it for this race bc I'm really excited about voting for Fetterman. I've also waited over 20 years to vote once again in PA where a Dem victory is a realistic outcome.

As a Dem? Living in Tennessee was a bummer.

14. There's nothing inherently wrong with Conor Lamb

In fact, on paper he's the ideal candidate. I just think in this race, in this year we need someone with real juice, someone to get the electorate excited about voting and can appeal to the everyman/everywoman.

John Fetterman has that potential, a gift for reaching out and leaving an impression. It's a different impression than what we're accustomed to but in this political climate 'different/unique/the working man's whisperer' is having an impact.

It just doesn't work this year.

Not after all the turmoil and angst the country has experienced. Voters yearn for something different. They may not even know what that 'different' means but they know pretty damn quick John Fetterman is not business as usual.

I think Dems are looking for someone/something different and Fetterman fits the bill.

As for the piling on during the primary campaign? I think that's pretty normal, be it Lamb or Kenyatta. And yes, it's been pretty rough. But . . . it's a prelude to what Fetterman is going to catch during the GE. The Republicans will be out for blood and eyeballs.

Then (unfortunately) the primary will look like a picnic.

He worked his ass off to get both Clinton and Biden elected, and has worked hard supporting Biden. Unlike two specific Senators who have worked against Biden.

He also didn't endorse a republicon liar over her Democratic opponent.

If anything, its basic libertarianism.

As for me, I'm confident that all three candidates I talked to would pass my "litmus tests" (reproductive rights, firearms regulations and progressive taxation); that said, my opinions on Fetterman v. Lamb have nothing to do with which one is closer to my policy opinions; they have to do with which is more electable, for which gaining an understanding of what they plan to campaign on and how the total electorate will react to them.

57. That was for a house seat...in a red district...but consider 18 was a great year for us...lot's

of upsets...and that was the only time he ran in a red district...they redid the district after his first run. He also voted with Trump 68% of the time in his first year. That being said I would vote for him if he was the candidate. I would vote for Satan himself if he ran as a Democrat. Not saying Connor is Satan...he is a good person in general. LOL

Just not in this race. Fetterman is a great candidate. That doesnít mean that Lamb is a bad person. He gave one of the best speeches about 1/6.

68. Yes, Lamb is not going to win the primary. Thus will stay in the House.

66. For sure...we need that seat.

I don't dislike Connor...he annoyed me during the primary...but that is a primary for you. I just don't think he wins the PA senate seat. I believe Fetterman can win.

67. Do you know how many sensible centrist have lost this seat? Too many.

Fetterman transcends those sorts of politics...he has broad appeal.

74. That's the explanation right there.

"sensible centrist".

We need liberal progressives that will speak up. Liberal policies are what is best for the public.

It's a shame so many democrats run away from that.
