Gap Narrows Between Pro-Choice and Pro-Life Voters
In the wake of Wendy Davis' nearly 12-hour long filibuster against closing down abortion clinics in Texas, the percentage of American voters who are pro-choice and pro-life is the narrowest it's ever been. The new poll found 46 percent of likely American voters considered themselves pro-choice, the lowest finding in nearly three years of studying. The poll also found 43 percent of American voters consider themselves pro-life, the highest finding to date.
In April, 53 percent of American voters said they were pro-choice, only 1 percent below the all-time high of 54 percent in January.
The poll also found 42 percent of Americans believe it is too easy to get an abortion in the U.S., while only 19 percent said it was too difficult to get an abortion. Only 24 percent said the level of difficulty is just about right. Over half of American voters also thought abortion was morally wrong, while 33 percent found it morally acceptable.
The survey of 1,000 Likely Voters was conducted on July 5. The margin of sampling error is +/- 3 percentage points with a 95 percent level of confidence.
