Democrats have no idea the trouble they just got themselves into.
Chuck Schumer walked the Democrats right into a political trap.
And that sealed the single biggest defeat of his life.
The Senate recently voted on the Born Alive Survivors Protection Act.
Republicans brought the bill up for a vote in the wake of Virginia Governor Ralph Northam’s obscene comments that defended legislation allowing abortionists to kill babies after surviving an abortion procedure.
The vote seemed like a no-brainer.
In a sane world, the idea of protecting innocent babies from being killed shouldn’t even require an act of Congress.
But 44 Senate Democrats – including every Senate Democrat running for President – filibustered the bill.
Senator Mike Lee tweeted, “It saddens me that so many of my colleagues do not believe that all born citizens should be protected by federal law. But we will not let this vote get us down. We will continue to share the stories of those who miraculously survived efforts to snuff them out at birth.”
President Trump slammed the Democrats for their barbarianism.
“Senate Democrats just voted against legislation to prevent the killing of newborn infant children. The Democrat position on abortion is now so extreme that they don’t mind executing babies AFTER birth….”
“….This will be remembered as one of the most shocking votes in the history of Congress. If there is one thing we should all agree on, it’s protecting the lives of innocent babies.”
This happened because Chuck Schumer would not allow his caucus to break on the issue.
The Democrat Party base’s extremism on the issue has them trapped.
Liberals will not accept any limits on the right of abortion mills to end babies lives on demand – which now includes even after they are born alive.
But Democrats ran head first into a political dead-end.
It should go without saying, but killing born alive babies is not popular.
Bloomberg reporter Sahil Kapur tweeted out the shocking results of a Marist poll that showed pro-life support – even among some Democrats – was surging in the wake of the party coming out for infanticide.
Kapur wrote, “MARIST POLL: 47% of Americans identify as pro-life, 47% identify as pro-choice. Last month, pro-choice led 55-38%. Since then, Democrats have moved from 20% pro-life to 34% pro-life. The pollsters attribute the change to the late-term abortion debate.”
In 2016, Donald Trump won the election in large part because he strongly was in favor of appointing pro-life Supreme Court Justices.
Voters who put the Supreme Court as their number one issue broke heavily in Trump’s favor.
In the 2020 election, that issue could be front and center again.
Elections are decided by base mobilization and turning out single issue voters.
A slice of Democrats identifying as pro-life means the President could win them over to his column in 2020 based solely on those voters abandoning the Democrats due to their barbaric support for snuffing out the lives of infants.
