Poll Shows Vast Majority Of Iowa Republicans Are Pro-Life

In the race for the Republican nomination, former president Donald Trump, a pro-life candidate, is presently the frontrunner in the Iowa poll.

Eighty percent of Republicans in Iowa who plan to vote in the 2024 presidential caucuses identify as “pro-life,” according to a new survey.

Fifty-four percent say they are more inclined to vote for a candidate who advocates for a ban on abortions after 15 weeks of pregnancy, and 58 percent feel the state’s current six-week restriction “gets it about right.”

Seventy-seven percent of Republican voters in the most recent statewide NBC News/Des Moines Register/Mediacom survey also identify as “afraid for the Constitution” and “disgruntled with government,” while seventy-one percent identify as “true conservatives.”

Sixty-seven percent of Iowa Republicans identify as “anti-woke,” making this a famous label within the state’s GOP.

Polling in Iowa is especially important since the 2024 presidential primary season kicks out with the state’s Republican caucuses on January 15.

Trump is the preferred candidate of 42% of Iowa Republicans, according to a study conducted by NBC News, the Des Moines Register, and Mediacom. He is followed in popularity by Florida Governor Ron DeSantis (19%) and South Carolina Senator Tim Scott (9%).

Fourty-six percent of Iowa Republicans identified as “MAGA Republicans,” while just 23 percent identified as “anti-Trump.”

NBC News stated that the study indicated a modest decrease in caucus-goers who regarded themselves devoutly religious, while the percentage who classified themselves as “moderate” was relatively stable at 57%. In 2016, 62% of respondents said they would use the term.

Iowa pollster J. Ann Selzer surveyed 2,953 eligible voters between August 13 and 17, 2018, and the results were weighted by age, gender, and congressional district. The survey was broadcast on NBC News and published in the Des Moines Register and Mediacom.

According to the survey, most prospective Republican caucus-goers are white (93%), male (61%), and over 55. Nineteen percent more would be attending their first caucus.
