I recently completed an in-depth demographic analysis of the 2016 Election, and the results indicate that abortion – not healthcare, jobs, and taxes -- remains the defining issue of our times.
Movement for a Better America has just issued the study as a special report drawing on my 50+ years of experience in media and market research and over 20 years tracking abortion trends.
The study shows that despite partisan differences on other issues, abortion is clearly the issue that defines the difference between Republican red states and Democratic blue states. It's an amazing report,
For example, Hillary Clinton won 64% of the states with the highest number of abortions while Donald Trump won 73% of the states with the lowest number of abortions. It’s as if they each won landslides in two different countries.
In fact, the red state/blue state division is almost as sharp as the north/south division during the U.S. Civil War. It certainly underscores the bitter fracas currently going on in Washington.
The good news is that we may have passed the worst phase of that division.
The underlying long term demographic trends I identified are nearly impossible to change. Indeed, they are literally baked into the demographic pie. And they indicate that most of America has had more than enough of abortion on demand.
What decided the election was the demographic impact of high abortion rates on Democratic minority voting groups on one hand, and the outpouring of support for Donald Trump by the Evangelicals and traditional pro-life voters on the other.
For the first time in years, the Evangelicals and the pro-life movement finally had the political strength to decide a national election. The Catholic vote, by contrast, gave a weak 52% majority for Donald Trump.
Trends in minority voting patterns by contrast predict tough times ahead for the Democrats. The report identifies “significant shifts in minority and blue collar voting that threaten the block voting patterns that have sustained the Democrats as far back as Lyndon Johnson.”
It suggests that “if these shifts continue, liberal Democrats risk losing power for years to come.” And, again, the big driver is abortion.
The report points out, “By aggressively supporting abortion on demand, the Democrats have been aborting their own minority voting base for decades. . . If not for an estimated 36 million Black and Hispanic abortions, Hillary Clinton would have won the 2016 election in a huge landslide.”

After 48 years of abortion on demand and over 50 years of America on the Pill, is the United States on the verge of an inevitable population death spiral similar to that facing Europe, China, and the former Soviet Union?
From the latest trends in births, it certainly seems that way. Since 2007, births have been declining by 1.1% a year while abortions have been dropping by 3% a year. The 1.9% difference between the two trends reflects the success of the pro-life movement in saving lives and discouraging abortion. That is certainly good news.
The bad news, however, is that both trends reflect a decline in the number of young women in their child-bearing years. That's a direct consequence of 59.3 million abortions since 1967 plus 50 years of America on the Pill.
It's called "the echo effect." Babies aborted and births prevented 20 to 40 years ago are simply not around to give birth to a new generation. And that means a steady decline in new births that could last for years based on a detailed analysis of trends by our researchers at Movement for a Better America.
