Support for Roe V. Wade Remains Strong and Consistent

An overwhelming majority of Americans don’t want to see the Roe V. Wade overturned by the Supreme Court, according to a new Pew Research poll. The poll found only 29 percent want to see the historic abortion decision overturned, while 63 percent want it to remain. From Pew:

Interestingly, support for Roe v. Wade has remain mostly unchanged over the past twenty years. There has been only a tiny increase in support since 1992. By comparison, other culture war issue such as same-sex marriage and drug policy have seen dramatic changes in the last decade.

Given the remarkably steady state of opinion on this matter it will remain a political football for the foreseeable future.
