Professor Asher Hildebrand and Deondra Rose on the impact of Roe vs Wade news on voting turnout, Duke Today & NC Policy Watch

Associate Professor’s Asher Hildebrand and Deondra Rose were interviewed by Duke Today and NC Policy Watch on the ramifications of the U.S. Supreme court’s potential reversal of Roe vs Wade on voting turnout in the primary and midterm elections.

The leaked news that the U.S. Supreme Court could overturn Roe vs Wade could galvanize Republicans and Democrats to vote in the primary and midterm elections.
“I do think this could be a game-changer,” Hildebrand said. “It raises the perception of the stakes especially among Democratic and Democratic-leaning voters.”

“Now, women’s reproductive freedom takes center stage. This could be that issue that could mobilize young voters, certainly for the primaries but potentially for that general election in November,” said Rose.

The two professors also discussed the intent behind the leaked SCOTUS draft decision, how candidates will react to the abortion news, and on the issues important to young voters.
