How do Americans feel about abortion rights in the wake of the Supreme Court’s decision to overturn Roe v. Wade?
According to a new PORES/SurveyMonkey survey, 8 in 10 American adults say that abortion will be important to their votes in the midterm elections taking place across the country this November.
PORES Director John Lapinski, PORES Executive Director Stephanie Perry, and PORES Director of Data Science Marc Trussler co-authored the NBCNews.com article about the results alongside Josh Clinton, a professor of political science at Vanderbilt University.
They found that there is broad bipartisan support for abortion ban exemptions; for instance, 86% of Republicans believe that a pregnant woman should be able to legally have an abortion if her health is seriously endangered by the pregnancy, joining 95% of Democrats and 93% of independents who share that opinion.
