Are voters finally calling B.S. on Trump? Here's latest polling

By Matt Arco | NJ Advance Media for NJ.com

About half of Pennsylvania swing voters aren’t sold on former President Donald Trump’s shifting positions on abortion, according to Axios’ latest Engagious/Sago focus groups.

That could spell big trouble for him come November as Pennsylvania is expected to be one of the half-dozen states or so that will decide the outcome of the election.

“Interviews with 11 voters who swung from former President Trump in 2016 to President Biden in 2020 suggest the security of access to abortion will determine who they support in November,” per Axios.

This comes after Arizona’s state Supreme Court ruling that permits enforcement of an 1864 law effectively banning abortion in the state. Trump has said he thinks states should decide on the issue and later said he wouldn’t sign a national abortion ban.

and a focus group that was constructed from "swing voters". I mean, this is not representative in anyone's mind:

Frustrated with both Trump and Biden, most participants — six — said they would take Robert F. Kennedy Jr. over either of the presumptive nominees.
But participants said they still need to hear more about Kennedy's views on abortion.
