Just shy of half of US adults, 46%, say it would bother them a lot if abortion were banned in certain states, according to the Monmouth poll, with Democrats 60 percentage points more likely than Republicans to say they would be bothered a lot, 78% vs. 18%.
Un 85% majority overall say that any such state bans should include exceptions in cases of rape, incesto, or when the life of the mother is at risk; 72% say it would bother them a lot of state abortion bans did not include such exceptions.
It’s still too early to draw strong conclusions about what effect the decision might have on the outcome of the midterm elections. Future polling will show whether the ruling leads to significant and lasting changes either on which party voters prefer, or on which side’s voters are more likely to turn out.
Most Democrats in the CBS/YouGov poll report that the decision left them feeling upset (78%) and angry (72%), while a somewhat smaller majority of Republicans describe themselves as happy (60%).
Half (50%) of Democrats said in the CBS/YouGov poll that the decision makes them more likely to vote in the midterms, compared with just 20% of Republicans who said the same. While this question does not provide an accurate gauge of actual shifts in voters’ intention to turn out, it suggests that Democrats are currently more likely than Republicans to consider the Supreme Court’s decision a good reason for voting later this year.
