TN: 2 Polls confirm Tennesseans are pro life ...both from liberal sources

Poll published today in Tennessean shows  has some interesting stats about the life issue.

Do you think abortion should be legal in all cases, legal in most cases, illegal in most cases, or illegal in all cases?

  • Legal in all-6.5

  • Legal in most-14.6

  • Illegal in all-16.9

  • Illegal in most-9.6

  • don't know-2.6

  • Missing-49.8

On the issue of abortion, would you say you are: 

  • Definitely pro choice -12.4

  • some pro choice-6.4

  • some pro life-6.6

  • definitely pro life-20.2

  • don't know- 3.7

  • Missing-50                                                                                                                                                                                                

Now I wonder about the missing. I guess the respondent did not feel comfortable answering so just skipped the question.  These are not easy things to talk about so that may be the case. 

Vanderbilt published a poll portraying the legislature as losing favor for tackling some controversial issues.  I doubt their conclusions since the point of the legislature is not to look nice but to take up these very issues.  But on the life issue.....they mentioned it but did not make a big deal of it.

"The majority of Tennesseans consider themselves pro-life and oppose abortion."
