A new survey by the Washington Post and ABC News has found that support for abortion in America is at its highest in more than two decades.
“The Post-ABC poll finds a 60 percent majority who say abortion should be legal in most or all cases, up from 55 percent in a 2013 Post-ABC poll, and tying the record high level of support from 1995. The latest survey finds 36 percent say abortion should be illegal in all or most cases, also tying a record low.“
As for the upcoming election, more than 60 percent of Americans think abortion is either “one of the single most important issues” in their vote or a “very important issue.”
As for Donald Trump’s handling of the abortion issue, disapproval stands at 54 percent to 32 percent approval. That number jumps to 85 percent disapproval among Democrats.
The poll comes at a times when several states have passed restrictive abortion bills.
