GOP pollster: Republicans should not focus on overturning Roe v. Wade


GOP pollster Conor Maguire said on Tuesday that the party should not focus on overturning Roe v. Wade as President Trump prepares to fill a vacancy on the Supreme Court. 

{mosads}”I don’t think that’s a fight we need to have right now. As Republicans, we have so many other things that we’re focusing on,” Maguire told Hill.TV’s Joe Concha on “What America’s Thinking.” 

Maguire said the GOP should instead focus on issues impacting swing voters. 

“We don’t need to go back and pick a fight on something that is just going to rile up so many more people, and really turn out, and get a lot more people on the left angry,” he said. 

Maguire’s comments come after Justice Anthony Kennedy, who was seen as the Supreme Court’s swing vote, announced his retirement from the court last week.
