A new poll released today by Susan B. Anthony List (SBA List) finds that, of those with an opinion, 58 percent of Americans want to see abortion policy decided by the people through their elected representatives rather than by the Supreme Court (22 percent were unsure, 45 percent said their elected officials, 33 percent said Supreme Court).

 

This position is even stronger among voters in 2018 battleground states whose senators have a key stake in the nomination of Judge Brett Kavanaugh to serve on the Supreme Court:

 

  • 54% of Florida voters want abortion policy decided by the people through the legislature.
  • 65% of Indiana voters want abortion policy decided by the people through the legislature.
  • 57% of Missouri voters want abortion policy decided by the people through the legislature.
  • 67% of North Dakota voters want abortion policy decided by the people through the legislature.
  • 57% of West Virginia voters want abortion policy decided by the people through the legislature.


Additionally, of those with an opinion, 58 percent of Americans think President Trump’s nominee, Judge Brett Kavanaugh should be confirmed to the Supreme Court (30 percent were unsure, 40 percent in support, 29 percent opposed). Support for confirmation is even stronger among voters in 2018 Senate battleground states:

 

  • 56% of Florida voters want Nelson to confirm the nominee.
  • 56% of Indiana voters want Donnelly to confirm the nominee.
  • 57% of Missouri voters want McCaskill to confirm the nominee.
  • 68% of North Dakota voters want Heitkamp to confirm the nominee.
  • 59% of West Virginia voters want Manchin to confirm the nominee.

McLaughlin & Associates conducted the survey of 1,000 likely general election voters nationwide between July 20–24, 2018. All interviews were conducted online; survey invitations were distributed randomly within predetermined geographic units. These units were structured to correlate with actual voter turnout in a nationwide general election. This poll of 1,000 likely general election voters has an accuracy of +/- 3.1% at a 95% confidence interval.
