In Ohio, voters will vote to decide whether or not to include women’s right to abortions in the state constitution. In Virginia, Governor Glenn Youngkin says, if reelected, he will pass a 15-week ban on abortion. Co-director of the Fox News Poll and professor at the University of Texas at Austin, Daron Shaw, joins the Rundown to discuss President Joe Biden’s recent polling, why the Mississippi governor’s race is an indicator of the President’s favorability amongst Black communities, and why these races may gauge the significance of abortion heading into the next election.

A former executive for the app Tinder noted that young Americans in high school and college are receiving a great deal of “wrong information” about the war from TikTok.
