Poll Watch: NBC News/Wall Street Journal Survey on Roe v. Wade and Abortion

NBC News/Wall Street Journal Poll on Roe v. Wade and Abortion

The Supreme Court's 1973 Roe versus Wade decision established a woman's constitutional right to an abortion, at least in the first three months of pregnancy. Would you like to see the Supreme Court completely overturn its Roe versus Wade decision, or not?
  • Yes, overturn 24%
  • No, do not overturn 70% 
Which comes closest to your view on abortion--abortion should always be legal, should be legal most of the time, should be made illegal except in cases of rape, incest and to save the mother's life, or abortion should be made illegal without any exceptions?
  • Always legal 31%
  • Legal most of the time 23%
  • Illegal with exceptions 35%
  • Illegal without any exceptions 9%
Survey of 1,000 adults was conducted January 12-15, 2013. The margin of error is +/- 3.1 percentage points.
