Despite skewed polls on Roe, new poll proves majority still against abortion
At National Review, Dr. Michael New notes the number of polls that have analyzed Americans’ views on whether Roe v. Wade should remain the law of the land. The problem with those polls is that most, if not all, either didn’t correctly explain what Roe actually did, or explained it incorrectly. (One company was even forced to walk back its poll for telling respondents that overturning Roe v. Wade would make abortion illegal — a complete untruth — rather than returning the decision to individual states to set their own laws on the matter, just as they did prior to Roe.) The best way to tell how Americans feel about abortion is to ask them not about Roe v. Wade, but about abortion itself, says New.
But a poll from Hill.TV and HarrisX, released last week, asked 1000 registered voters “about circumstances in which abortion should be legal.” And as you might imagine, the results were very different than what Roe v. Wade approval polls have purported to show.
