Joe Biden beats Donald Trump in Texas poll as he breaks from Democratic party line on abortion Empty Joe Biden beats Donald Trump in Texas poll as he breaks from Democratic party line on abortion

Joe Biden put clear water between himself and other Democrat presidential candidates on the issue of abortion as he pulled into a surprise poll lead over Donald Trump in the traditionally conservative state of Texas.

He enraged pro-choice activists, and many senior Democrat colleagues, by confirming he was against the idea of the US government using taxpayers' money to fund abortion.

Mr Biden's campaign confirmed he backs the Hyde amendment, a 40-year-old law banning federal funding for abortion other than in cases of incest, rape, or to save the life of the mother.

The official position of the Democrat party, and every other Democrat presidential candidate, is that Hyde should be repealed. They argue the ban prevents the poorest women gaining access to abortions.

The party is called the Democratic Party and is typically only referred to as the Democrat Party by its detractors.

Not at all on topic but I thought I'd point it out Smile

And now it appears that Biden has changed his position and no longer supports the amendment.
