Fifty percent of likely U.S. voters approve of the Supreme Court ruling that overturned Roe v. Wade, according to a new Rasmussen Reports national phone and online survey. That includes 38 percent who said they strongly approve of the decision.
Forty-five percent said they disapproved of the decision, including 38 percent who strongly disapproved.
Seventy-five percent of Republicans approve of the ruling while 71 percent of Democrats disapprove. However, unaffiliated voters approve at 53 percent while 42 percent disapprove.
All of this despite 52 percent of those surveyed saying they consider themselves generally pro-choice and 41 percent saying they are pro-life.
Seventy-four percent of voters who call themselves pro-choice expect abortion rights to be a very important issue in November elections while just 33 percent of those who are pro-life say the same.
