WISCONSIN— New poll data showed the majority of Wisconsinites support abortion legality in most or all cases.
The newest Marquette University Law School poll was released Wednesday. The team surveyed more than 800 Wisconsinites from June 14 to 20. The poll has a margin of error of +/-4.3%.
More than half, 58%, of Wisconsinites said they were “very concerned” about abortion. Whereas 24% said they were “somewhat concerned” about abortion; 8% said they were “not too concerned.” About 9% said they were “not at all concerned,” while 2% said they did not know how concerned they were.
When it comes to abortion legality, 27% of Wisconsinites surveyed said it should be legal in all cases, and 31% said it should be legal in most cases. On the other end, 24% of people said it should be illegal in most cases, and 11% said it should be illegal in all cases.
These numbers have stayed relatively steady over the last 10 years, according to Charles Franklin, Marquette Law poll director.
“Since the Supreme Court’s leaked draft decision in May, we have not seen any substantial shift in the preferences about abortion,” Franklin said. “We have seen some differences in how people rate the importance of the question, and we’ll find out in months to come whether it becomes a more important voting issue or not.”
