Michigan Democrats lead shows abortion may be the issue that decides midterm races

Elissa Slotkin is a straight shooter. She doesn't miss a beat when asked a tough question. She speaks up often, and forcefully, against things she perceives as unjust - whether perpetrated by her opponents or her own Democratic party. But when asked what she'll think if the proposal to enshrine abortion rights in Michigan's state constitution doesn't pass this November, she clams up.

Slotkin fidgets, stroking one thumb over the other, in a repetitive, soothing motion.

Is she discombobulated?

"Yes," she answers, back to her usual, rapid-fire pace.

Why?

"I'll tell you this," Slotkin begins. "If it fails to pass, I won't be re-elected. Because it means I'm fundamentally out of touch."

She pauses, cautiously, and adds: "But I don't believe that to be the case. I think I'm going to win."
