For most of 2022, Democratic voters have been far more ambivalent about participating in the fall midterms than their Republican counterparts.

By a surprisingly wide margin, voters in Kansas yesterday rejected a proposed constitutional amendment that would have allowed legislators to ban or severely restrict abortion.
