Campaigning on Guns and Abortion Might Actually Work in 2022

The conventional wisdom surrounding what issues to run on in elections says that Democrats should not try to make abortion rights and gun control voting issues. Instead, it’s better to focus on the kitchen table issues like gas prices, inflation, and the economy overall. However, this midterm season may be different given the events of the moment and current polling on these topics. Looking at abortion, only 41% of Americans agree with the Supreme Court’s recent decision to overturn Roe vs. Wade whereas 59% disapprove, according to a CBS News / YouGov poll. When it comes to gun control, Pew Research data show that the vast majority of people support background checks, oppose concealed carry without a permit, support red flag laws, and support bans on high-capacity magazines and assault weapons. With these two issues being at the forefront (at least for now) they appear to be the right issues for Democrats to run on going into the 2022 midterms.
