New polling data has come out following the leaked Supreme Court draft opinion about Roe vs. Wade that shows that an overwhelming majority of Americans support protecting abortion rights. According to an NBC News poll, 37% of the country believes abortions should always be legal and 23% believe they should be legal most of the time. On the flip side, 32% believe abortion should be illegal with few exceptions and 5% believe it should be illegal with no exceptions. The combined 60% support for abortion rights is the highest level on this question going back to 2003. A separate question about whether Roe vs. Wade should be overturned got only 30% of correspondents to agree that it should and 63% saying it should not. These results show that the Supreme Court is positioned to do something the majority of Americans disagree with and is yet another example of how our system of government often fails to represent the people.
