As has been stated here several times over the years, abortion may become a winning ‘hot-button’ social issue for Republicans. Scientific and technological progress doesn’t bode well for the pro-choice position, especially the harm dimension of morality. It is a dimension leftists put greater emphasis on than others do.
New media is exposing another vulnerability for the pro-choice position. It’s difficult to portray abortion as a mere clinical procedure when videos like these find their way out [edit: EldnahYm points out these are likely rubber dolls used in medical training–we are most vulnerable when we don’t know what we don’t know, so I am glad to be now be aware of the existence of such fetal dolls!]:
This my friends is what EVIL looks like! Our own investigation into the abortion industry saw them playing catch with the babies in the hallway. Another investigation saw them playing "wishbone" with the aborted baby body parts.

Again, the stench of sulfur is coming through my computer screen. If the video ended with a few lab coats turning into pillars of salt maybe that would dispel the smell.
Democrat frontrunner Joe Biden seems to grasp as much.
How can I get away with prognosticating given how poor the prospects for my Kamala Harris prediction appear to be? Audacity, of course!
In my defense, the prediction was made long before Jussie Smollett became a household name. The top three searches related to “kamala harris” give some indication of how little good that hate hoax did her:
Being part Indian, she is surely able to appreciate a little karma!
Despite floundering in the first few months, she’s not out of the running yet. Her path to the nomination remains turning in respectable top five finishes in both Iowa and New Hampshire and then winning South Carolina.
From Trends, a map showing which of the top five candidates in terms of search volume have enjoyed a plurality of searches by state since the beginning of 2019 through today:
Beto O’Rourke and Pete Buttigieg are manufactured candidates, preferred by the Establishment on account of being sufficiently woke without scaring the rubes in flyover country too much. But there isn’t grassroots interest in either of them.
No potential candidate inspires progressives less than Biden does. Bernie Sanders will likely remain a respectable second placer through primary season because although he has a ceiling well under 50% in every state, his base is the most loyal among the field, but it’s hard to see how he actually wins the nomination.
Tulsi Gabbard and Andrew Yang distinguish themselves from the rest of the field by having demonstrated the ability to offer independent thoughts and discuss novel ideas. Maybe one of them will catch a little fire in the early debates.
When it comes to diversity and intersectionality, Harris currently leads the pack, but that’s only because in the land of the blind the one-eyed woman is queen. The field is ripe for a fully fledged POC like Stacey Abrams or Oprah Winfrey to jump in and immediately shoot to the top of the polls. It’s worth noting that at this point in the 2016 presidential campaign, Donald Trump had not yet even announced his candidacy.
