The poll, published Wednesday, found that 57 percent of respondents oppose the court’s decision to overturn Roe v. Wade, while 40 percent said they support the court’s decision.

Responses in the recent poll varied across party lines, with 74 percent of registered Democratic respondents opposing the court’s decision to overturn the ruling, compared to 59 percent of registered Independent respondents and 27 percent of registered Republican respondents.
Opposition spanned both age and racial groups.
