Understanding Abortion Polling

Email a Friend

Polls that attempt to assess public opinion on abortion have yielded similar results for decades: the public is split nearly 50/50 on the question of whether abortion should be legal in all or most cases, or illegal with exceptions or banned outright. But according to pollster Tresa Undem, these numbers are misleading. Through research conducted with Vox earlier this year, Undem found that the questions polls typically ask don't reveal much about people's real, and often contradictory, views on abortion.
