In May, a Gallup poll showed that for the first time, the majority of Americans identified themselves as "pro-life."

Now, the Ohio Right to Life has released a new cultural index study conducted by Fritz Wenzel (formerly of Zogby) -- showing strong pro-life numbers in the swing state of Ohio. 

The findings include,

- 72% of Ohioans' surveyed strongly believe in God;
- 60% oppose abortion
- 54% believe abortion has a negative effect on women who have them
- 70% oppose use of taxpayer dollars for abortion

... With Republicans John Kasich running for governor and Rob Portman running for Senate, these numbers may be of special interest ...

And President Obama's numbers appear to be dropping there.
