Whether South Dakota Abortion Ban Passes Will Likely Depend on Undecided Voters
USA Today: Voters split evenly on S.D. abortion ban, by Terry Woster (Sioux Falls Argus Leader):
On the most divisive issue on our 2008 ballot, South Dakota is evenly divided.
An Argus Leader Media/KELO-TV poll showed a dead heat on Initiated Measure 11, the state's proposed abortion ban: 44% said they'd vote for it and 44% said they'd vote against it if the election were held immediately. The poll was conducted Oct. 13-15, with a sample of 800 South Dakotans who said they are likely voters. The poll's margin of error is 3.5 percentage points.
The 12% who said they still are undecided will determine the outcome of the issue Nov. 4.
