A conservative political pundit is concerned that last week's landmark decision ending the federal abortion mandate will fire up Democrats to vote in the fall.

Democrats have been apoplectic since the Supreme Court ruled to put an end to Roe v. Wade and send the issue back to the states. Violence is a concern, as it has already erupted in several locations since the decision was made. But a new CBS poll presents another issue: Democratic voters are more energized and will perhaps be more likely to vote in November.

With the Senate currently deadlocked at 50-50, the GOP's goal to flip enough seats to gain the majority could now be more difficult.

In Nevada, Adam Laxalt recently won the Republican primary and is ready to take on Democratic incumbent Catherine Cortez Masto.

"Laxalt has made some public pro-life comments," notes Rob Chambers, vice president of AFA Action. "In a state like Nevada, that opportunity could be minimized by a liberal state turning out the Democratic base. So they'll use fear mongering, making it less possible for a GOP senatorial candidate to prevail. Nevada is a liberal state."

Chambers says Georgia could also be problematic, with Republican Hershel Walker locked in a tight race against incumbent Democrat Raphael Warnock.

"Raphael Warnock is rabidly pro-abortion, and so Georgia is another potential state where you have a significant Democratic voter base," he reiterates, concluding, "That will have an effect, but I don't think it's going to motivate people that much."
