Conservative narrative

The decision by Starbucks could be bad for their business, with a Trafalgar Group study showing that 87.1% of people would likely stop using a service with a political agenda they disagreed with. As the majority of Americans don't agree with Roe, it is possible they won't agree with Starbucks either.
