    replace with regard to by about

    Hi,

    Question:
    the following 3 sentences are found from newspaper.
    Can I replace with regard to by about?
    Do with regard to and about have the same meaning?

    Therefore it is a fine balance as to what the general public want with regard to what we should be doing, putting more land out to the environment or should we put more land down for food production.

    In addition, the algorithm suggests a regular follow up with further tests at 2-4 weeks to monitor therapy effectiveness and aid decision making with regard to ceasing or continuing with specific advanced therapies.

    It seems that market sentiment has turned decisively USD-negative on the back of recent economic underperformance and political brinkmanship with regard to the U.S. fiscal issues

    thanks

    ... fine balance as to what the general public want about what we should be doing ...
    ... decision making about ceasing or continuing with specific advanced therapies.
    ... political brinkmanship about the U.S. fiscal issues ...

    'About' does not sound right to me.

    If you say it's OK, then that must be the explanation.
