I know many pro-life conservatives are frustrated by Congress’ failure to defund Planned Parenthood. But here’s some good news: The reputation of the radical pro-abortion group has taken a big hit.

Quinnipiac University has measured Planned Parenthood’s popularity over the past three years. In 2012, 55 percent of voters had a favorable opinion of Planned Parenthood, while just 22 percent viewed it unfavorably — a 33-point gap.

Today, that gap has narrowed to just five points: Only 43 percent of voters have a favorable view of Planned Parenthood, while 38 percent view it unfavorably.

Clearly, we are winning the public debate, and that is an important first step toward defunding the nation’s largest abortion business.
