If the electoral polls are correct, the Democrats have a good chance of increasing their majority in the Senate and even keeping it in the House. To that end, they are trying to convince voters that abortion and Donald Trump are top election issues. But the real issue, by far the most important for politics today, is whether voters will put a legislative brake on the political left.
Trump isn’t even on the ballot this year, and Joe Biden will be president until at least 2024. Congress likely won’t pass any national abortion laws as long as the 60-vote legislative filibuster rule remains in the Senate. Abortion law could change in many states based on election results, but probably not in most.
