“This fall, Roe is on the ballot,” said Joe Biden, addressing his base in the wake of the landmark decision to repeal federal protections for abortions. “Personal freedoms are on the ballot. The right to privacy, liberty, equality, they’re all on the ballot.”
Calling it a “sad day for the Court and for the country,” Biden is hoping to flip a light switch in the heads of every liberal voter and motivate turnout among those disenchanted by his administration’s failures and the shortcomings of every Democrat floundering against a resurgent conservative movement.
Following the repeal of Roe v. Wade on Friday, Democrats are hoping to tap into the anger of their voting base to direct their ire against the Republicans – and away from the failures of their own policies.
