39% of Americans say abortion is important to their vote

You won't hear it on the news, but Americans care very much about life issues, and it may be what decides the election.
The number is down from the figure Pew found in 2004, when 47 percent of Americans said abortion played a role in determining their presidential vote.
The Pew survey also found that "Voters who are strongly opposed to abortion are much more likely than other voters to say that these are very important voting issues."
That confirms other polls showing that pro-life voters have a much higher voting intensity than voters who support abortions. That intensity has been responsible for giving pro-life candidates like John McCain an edge over pro-abortion candidates like Barack Obama.

Only 39%? Can we trust these polls?

I raise the point because Dr Nathanson (before is conversion and during his pro-abortion years) admitted to transposing the poll numbers to imply that more Americans were for abortion than against.
