MSNBC panel says Dems may ‘buck historic trends,’ cites pro-life women registering to vote FOR abortion

Pundits have been saying all year that Democrats will experience a shellacking in the midterm elections, in large part because of sky-high gas prices that are still nearly double what they were when President Joe Biden took office, and 40-year high inflation.

And as November grows large in the windshield, the liberal media are offering up predictable feel-good elixirs to buoy the spirits of the party’s base.

To their credit, Democrats have managed to keep Donald Trump front and center in the upcoming election instead of the economy, and Biden has managed to bully Big Oil and mom-and-pop gas station owners to lower gas prices despite his destructive policies. And then there’s the issue of abortion which many on the left believe will be their salvation at the ballot box.

There were a recent series of timely polls showing that Democrats were closing the gap when it comes to which party will control Congress, and this week The New York Times regaled readers with the exciting news that women are registering in “droves” — presumably motivated by a desire to kill unborn babies at will.

The Times reporting was featured on MSNBC, of course, with Ari Melber hosting a discussion with The Nation’s Joan Walsh and Washington Post columnist Eugene Robinson. While the data showed that conservative women are among those registering, the panel suggested some of these pro-life women were doing so in solidarity with women fighting for the right to have an abortion — heaven forbid it could be mothers concerned about the woke educational system in much of America.

“There are a lot of people in the so-called heartland who thought they were anti-abortion who are turning around to be some kind of pro-choice, having seen the horror stories we’ve seen,” Walsh proclaimed — this being a reference to ectopic pregnancies and the story of an 11-year-old impregnated rape victim reportedly unable to get an abortion in Ohio.

While making the case against abortion restrictions, she would go on to say that for women having abortions “these are tough choices and nobody’s making them in a cavalier fashion.”

“Some people might judge late-term terminations if they don’t know the circumstances, which are almost always dire,” Walsh said. “But it’s become like this is being done in our name. And I think women and definitely a lot of men are like, this is not what we thought we wanted.”

After commenting on religious beliefs, Melber gave Walsh the final word after quoting a Times op-ed by Tom Bonier, a Democratic political strategist, suggesting Democrats “could buck historic trends” in November — in recent history, the president’s party always realizes significant congressional losses in the first midterm following the presidential election.

“Joan, with the 30 seconds I have left I want to read from The New York Times, quote, ‘Women are registering to vote in numbers I’ve never witnessed. I’ve run out of superlatives to describe how different this moment is, especially in light of the cycles of tragedy and eventual resignation of recent years. This is a moment to throw old political assumptions out the window and to consider that Democrats could buck historic trends this cycle,’ from an opinion piece, but one that raises that same data,” he said.

“Tom is a very sober writer and pollster, and I was actually surprised to see that, you know, how you click on something. You’re like, Who wrote that? I want to see that. I want to see the byline that that’s real. He’s seeing that he’s not shilling. So for Democratic women, it’s exciting,” Walsh concluded.
