Posted on 07/02/2018 12:13:17 PM PDT by yesthatjallen
There is only a small gender gap as American voters agree 63 - 31 percent with the U.S. Supreme Court Roe v. Wade decision on abortion, according to a Quinnipiac University National Poll released today.
Men agree 61 - 32 percent, while women agree 65 - 30 percent, the independent Quinnipiac (KWIN-uh-pe-ack) University National Poll finds. Republicans disagree with Roe v. Wade 58 - 36 percent. Every other listed party, gender, education, age and racial group agrees.
The Supreme Court is mainly motivated by politics rather than law, American voters say 50 - 42 percent. The court is too liberal, 19 percent of voters say, as 31 percent say it is too conservative and 41 percent say it is about right.
But 49 percent of voters approve of the Supreme Court's decision upholding President Donald Trump's travel ban on citizens from five mostly Muslim countries, while 46 percent disapprove.
President Trump's nomination to the Supreme Court should make the court more conservative, 31 percent of voters say, as 29 percent say it should make the court more liberal and 35 percent say it should keep the current balance on the court.
American voters are divided on when the U.S. Senate should consider President Trump's Supreme Court nominee, as 46 percent say the Senate should consider the nomination and 48 percent say the Senate should not consider the nomination until after the November elections.
"It's a draw on banning travel from some largely Muslim countries, but there is no ambivalence on abortion as men and women dig in and say, 'Hands off Roe v. Wade,'" said Tim Malloy, assistant director of the Quinnipiac University Poll.

I'm just reporting what's going to be rammed down our throats for months.
Most people don’t even know what Roe v Wade is, only that they’ve been told their entire lives that being against it means you hate women and want them to die.
Polls schmolls, who believes them anymore?
Even if this is true it’s irrelevant.
Exactly. Explain it in simple words and the numbers would be reversed.
Most people can’t even name the Vice President.
I bet at the time of the slave trade the approval numbers for slavery were higher than that. Just because so many Americans are uneducated uninformed idiots does not mean they should be listened to.
independent Quinnipiac (KWIN-uh-pe-ack) University National Poll finds.
I wonder if these are the same “2 - 1” they showed on FOX at the beach today who were clueless about why we celebrate July 4th. Experts in Constitutional law but clueless about American history.
If that’s true, they can vote to approve abortion at the state level, where it ought to be decided. I think that most Americans would go along with a federalist approach.
This is interesting. The Republicans are probably the only ones who could describe the issue. Overall, bear in mind that Quinnipeac is a liberal pollster, if I recall correctly.
TRuth and Conditional rights are not subject to “Group-Think”.
I believe a majority of Americans will support restrictions on abortion but not an outright ban. I believe the premise of this poll, a majority support for Roe v. Wade is true.
I know people here wish it were otherwise but its not.
Now ask the same folks if they believe in killing children under the age of one.
“Every other listed party, gender, education, age and racial group agrees.”
Any poll that Claims Blacks favor abortion by two to one margin is lying out their butt holes.
Quinnipiac. The same liberal college who stated Clinton was 15 points ahead. Amazing these clowns still did not learnt their lying lessons...
I have another poll. It was done by the Guttmacher Institute in the early 1980s.
They asked women if they would still have an abortion if it were not legal.
The result was that around 90% of those women questioned said they WOULD NOT seek an abortion if it were illegal.
That means that only 10% would still seek and illegal abortion.
That also means that they had to work hard to make sure abortion stays the law of the land.
I have looked for the study that I read in 1984, but it is not on their website.
But, believe me, they know how important it is for them to keep us all in the dark about abortion.
Let’s see Quinnipiac do a poll on seeing if voters know what Roe v Wade says.
If voters aren’t accurately informed, then there is a huge opportunity to educate.
Since most voters ALSO think (in this case ACCURATELY) the mainstream media is filled with liars, it shouldn’t be too tough to get them the right info on the bad law that exists in Roe v. Wade.
Change the wording, change the poll results. This one suggests that 68% of Americans support a complete or partial ban:
By the numbers, a large fraction of those 68% consider themselves “pro choice”.
