A new poll from CBS and You Gov shows President Trump is up 10 points among Independents over Democratic Nominee Joe Biden — 47 percent compared to 37 percent. The new polling comes days after the Democratic National Convention wrapped up and just before the RNC is set to begin in Charlotte.

The results also find that 81 percent of Independents feel “Very strong” about their choice and 16 percent feel “strong.” Just 2 percent say they are “Somewhat strong.”

Enthusiasm is lower than the other numbers with 58 percent of Independents saying they are ‘Very enthusiastic” about voting in November. 17 percent are somewhat enthusiastic, 16 percent are not too enthusiastic, and 8 percent are not at all enthusiastic.

Just 14 percent of independents polled say “yes” or “maybe” to potentially changing their votes. 86 percent never would.

Oklahoma’s Republican Governor Kevin Stitt signed a bill into law on Wednesday which bans virtually all abortions “from the moment of fertilization.”

“I promised Oklahomans that as governor I would sign every piece of pro-life legislation that came across my desk and I am proud to keep that promise today. From the moment life begins at conception is when we have a responsibility as human beings to do everything we can to protect that baby’s life and the life of the mother,” Stitt said in a statement. “That is what I believe and that is what the majority of Oklahomans believe.”

The state legislature first approved the bill, which goes into effect immediately, last week. It bans abortions from the moment of fertilization, except for in cases where rape or incest occurred, or where the mother’s life is in danger.

The law also allows for private citizens to sue doctors or those who participate in “producing an abortion for up to $10,000, mimicking the enforcement mechanism in Texas’s fetal heartbeat law” reports National Review.

Under the new law it is a felony offense to perform an abortion, “which will take effect in August unless a court challenge blocks it.”
