Harvard Poll: 72% of Voters Want Tough Abortion Restrictions in Their States

Lucy Collins : Jul 6, 2022  CNS News

Only 23% said that abortion should be allowed "up to 23 weeks" in their state, and only 10% said "up to 9 months."

[] A new national poll shows that while 55% of Americans opposed the overturning of Roe v. Wade, up to 72% said they believed their state should not allow abortions after 15 weeks or even earlier. The poll also found that the Roe decision has had a net neutral impact on midterm voting. (Image: Pixabay)

The survey was conducted by Harvard University's Center for American Political Studies (CAPS) and Harris Insights and Analytics. In the poll of 1,308 registered voters conducted June 28-29, respondents were asked a number of questions pertaining to the recent Supreme Court decision overturning Roe v. Wade.

For instance, the poll asked, "Do you support or oppose the Supreme Court's decision to overturn Roe vs Wade, which allows each state to decide its own standards for abortion instead of a set right?"

Fifty-five percent said they opposed the decision, including 69% of Democrats, 37% of Republicans, and 60% of Independents/others.

The poll also asked, "Do you think your state should allow abortion ...?" and gave several choices: Only in cases of rape or incest; up to six weeks; up to 15 weeks; up to 23 weeks; and up to 9 months.

Thirty-seven percent said "only in cases of rape or incest"; 12% said "up to six weeks"; and 23% said "up to 15 weeks." Combined, that is a total of 72% who want abortion very restricted in their state.

Only 23% said that abortion should be allowed "up to 23 weeks" in their state, and only 10% said "up to 9 months."

On another issue, the survey found the court's ruling to overturn Roe had a net neutral impact on midterm voting, with 36% saying they were more likely to vote for a Republican, 36% saying they were more likely to vote for a Democrat, and 29% saying it had no effect. Among Democrats polled, 12% said they were more likely to vote for a Republican and 9% of Republicans said they were more likely to vote for a Democrat.

The poll also asked if the voters considered the Supreme Court to be "illegitimate." Thirty-seven percent said they considered it to be illegitimate. Forty-six percent of Democrats polled and 42% of Independents/others said they considered the Court to be illegitimate.

Sixty-six percent of Democrats said it was "right" for Democrats to call the Supreme Court illegitimate.

On a related topic, 62% of voters opposed people being allowed to protest outside the homes of Supreme Court Justices, and 51% said those protesting outside the homes should be arrested.

The poll also asked about announcements by several corporations that they would cover cross-state travel and medical expenses for employees who wish to have an abortion—60% said they supported businesses taking such decisions and 61% said this type of support from corporations should be legal.

However, 63% of Republicans opposed the businesses' decisions and 55% of Republicans think that type of support should be "not legal."

On the economy, 71% of voters said the US is on the "wrong track," and 64% said their personal financial situation is "getting worse."
