A new Harvard/Harris poll released Tuesday found that a large majority (72%) of Americans would support banning abortions after 15 weeks, and almost half (49%) would support bans at 6 weeks.
Thirty-seven percent of registered voters would support banning abortions almost completely, with exceptions for cases of rape and incest. Overall, 90% of Americans would support some restriction on abortion.
According to the same poll, nearly half (45%) of Americans support the Supreme Court’s ruling that overturned Roe vs. Wade, while 55% oppose it.
The new data marks a dramatic shift in public opinion from as recently as one month before the Supreme Court handed down its ruling in the case of Dobbs vs. Jackson, striking down Roe.
