MILWAUKEE — Marquette Law School released its most recent poll Nov. 17, detailing how Americans feel about abortion rights and the Supreme Court.
This comes as the U.S. Supreme Court is set to decide cases this term concerning restrictive abortion laws in Texas and Mississippi.
A group of 1,004 Americans was polled nationally from Nov. 1 to 10 this year. The margin of error is +/-3.9 percentage points.
The poll found opinions are divided along ideological and party lines, though the partisan divide is less strong.
Among Republicans, 50% favor the abortion laws in Texas. 57% percent of Independents oppose it and 76% of Democrats oppose the law.
The poll shows support for overturning Roe v. Wade remains a minority view. 21% favor overturning the ruling, while 47% are opposed. 32% reported not having heard enough about the issue to form an opinion. This, after intense political arguments over Roe v. Wade for nearly 50 years.
When it comes to the approval rating for the U.S. Supreme Court, November’s poll shows that the rating has gone up since September’s results. Approval rose two 54%, compared to 49% last month. Disapproval declined to 46%, compared to 50% in September.
