In light of the leaked SCOTUS opinion on the issue, controversial former President Donald Trump is nervous that the Court’s likely decision to overturn Roe v. Wade will greatly hurt his chances to win the 2024 Presidential election, according to new reports.

Rolling Stone reported that Trump is afraid that the potential ruling has “enraged suburban women” who were a big part of Democrats’ electoral victories in the last two elections in 2018 and 2020.

Trump is reportedly maintaining a “calculated silence” on the hot button issue, which he fears will be used by Democrats against his campaign.

Trump is also apparently worried that some of the pro-life movement’s most extreme anti-abortion activists could turn-off moderate voters in the coming years and swing them toward the left, instead of toward his right-wing base.

Rolling Stone writes:

“In recent days, Trump has told some of his allies and counselors that “suburban women” and other key voting groups don’t like hearing about the issue, as they are simply more pro-choice than the mainstream of the Republican Party and conservative movement. He has also told several associates that if he went too hard now on the topic of overturning Roe, it would give his enemies the chance to ‘use it against’ him.”

Trump’s fears are probably rooted in the fact that he appointed three of the five Supreme Court justices who are most likely to overturn Roe v. Wade in the coming weeks or months.

A source told Rolling Stone the following:

“Suburban women have been a recurring concern for [former] President Trump, including during the 2020 campaign, when his smarter advisers were sounding the alarm to him about how he was losing suburbs…He is worried women in the suburbs could punish him for this one day.”
