POLL: Two Thirds of Americans Want Voters and Legislators to Decide Abortion Policy

Only 18% of voters said that abortion policy should be decided by judges and courts.

Around two thirds of all Americans want abortion policy to decided by the voters and their representatives, a new poll has revealed.

The poll of 1,200 registered voters conducted by Rasmussen and RMG Research released was released last week, and asked whether policies on abortion should be decided by judges and courts, or voters and their elected representatives. 65% of the respondents declared that it should be decided democratically and implemented via legislation.

Only 18% of respondents, just under a fifth of Americans, believed that it should be left to judges and courts to decide. The poll was conducted between May 5 and 7, only a few days after the leaked Supreme Court draft opinion that would overturn Roe v. Wade, when protests outside the homes of high court judges captured national headlines.

With an overturning of the Roe decision sending abortion policy back to the states, the poll would suggest that a clear majority of voters would back the Supreme Court in doing so.

75% of respondents said that they were closely following the news on the case, a net 52% increase since January.

“The consensus for overturning Roe, and returning this issue to the democratic process, is overwhelming,” former White House advisor Stephen Miller told the Daily Caller.

“By a nearly 4:1 margin Americans think voters and not judges should establish abortion rules in the United States.”

Despite the fact that former White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki and liberal media outlets have claimed that 60% of Americans are in favour of leaving Roe as is, the new poll of voters suggests very different results.

In fact, 63% of voters in the poll said that they would be against any proposal that would legalise abortion up to both, with 45% of those strongly opposing such a policy, compared to only 14% who would be strongly in favour.

55% of Americans said that they would be less likely to vote for a candidate that supported abortion being legal at any point during the pregnancy, with 33% saying otherwise.

“Broadly speaking, most voters support restrictions on abortion after the first trimester,” said Rachel Bovard, the senior director of policy at the Conservative Partnership Institute.

“Democrats are at sea on this issue and are left grasping at straws with outright fear mongering about what will happen if Roe is overturned, and forcing radical abortion policy on voters.”

    Polls taken today are worded in such a way that they tend to lean toward the poll takers opinion. As an example one question I came across asked if the baby would not live long after birth due to disability would you then approve of abortion. In the poll that was added to the approval rating although many of the respondents first answered against abortion.
