Majority of US voters support overturning of Roe v Wade

Last year, the conservative majority U.S. Supreme Court issued its decision in the Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health Organization, overturning Roe v. Wade. 

Democrats used the pro-abortion defeat to energize its base, pushing a message that would have suggested most of the country supports access to abortion services.

But according to Breitbart, a new poll completely unraveled the party's disinformation campaign, as it revealed that a majority of Americans approve of the high court's decision to return abortion law decisions to the states.

"Last year, the Supreme Court overturned the 1973 Roe v. Wade decision, so that each state can now determine its own laws regarding abortion. Do you approve or disapprove of the court overturning Roe v. Wade?” Rasmussen Reports asked in its latest survey.

Not only did 52% of likely U.S. voters support the high court's decision in Dobbs, but 37% "strongly" supported the decision.

Notably, the same question was asked in a previous iteration of the poll, and 50% indicated that they supported the decision at the time.

Breitbart added: "Forty-four percent of respondents disapprove of the decision, including 36 percent who “strongly disapprove."

"Majority Now Approve SCOTUS Abortion Ruling One year after the Supreme Court overturned the 1973 Roe v. Wade ruling, so that each state can now determine its own laws regarding abortion, a majority of voters approve the decision," Rasmussen Reports tweeted.

Not surprisingly, when broken down by party line, the numbers were quite different, yet predictable.

"Among Republican voters, 72 percent approve of the Supreme Court’s decision overturning Roe v. Wade and 26% disapprove. Sixty-three percent (63 percent) of Democrats disapprove of the Supreme Court abortion ruling, but 34 percent approve," according to the Rasmussen Reports report.

It added, "Voters not affiliated with either major party are more closely divided, with 51 percent approving the court’s decision returning abortion to states and 44 percent disapproving."

Many predict that the abortion issue will be one of many top issues heading into the 2024 election season.
