I looked this up in light of the increased chances the Supreme Court will overturn or cripple abortion rights.
Support for Roe v. Wade hits an all-time high
This article from July 2018 states:
“A new poll from NBC News and the Wall Street Journal finds that 71 percent of American voters believe that the decision, which established a woman’s legal right to an abortion, should not be overturned. Just 23 percent say the ruling should be reversed.”
A majority of the public was opposed to Kavanaugh. The Republicans put him on the Supreme Court anyway.
A majority of the public believed the accusers over Kavanaugh. Trump says the accusations are a hoax.
This is a bad moment even by Trump standards.
Voters More Likely to Back Senate Candidate Who Opposes Kavanaugh Confirmation
Lack of popularity didn’t stop Trump/Republicans from withdrawing from the climate change agreement, try to build the wall, ban Muslims, try to destroy Obamacare, etc. They only care what their minority thinks. They have no interest in compromising.
And views of the US are more negative too thanks to him
from the article:
“An NBC News/Wall Street Journal poll this week found that an astonishing 61 percent of voters believe immigration helps the United States as opposed to hurting, while only 28 percent say it hurts as opposed to helps. ”
“An NBC poll in August found that voters say by 50-23 that free trade has helped, as opposed to hurt, the U.S. — a massive shift since 2016. A Pew poll taken over the summer, just as Trump’s trade wars started to take hold, found that a plurality of Americans, 49-40, thought tariffs against our trading partners would be bad for the country. A recent Post/ABC poll found Americans oppose Trump’s tariffs by 50-41 (though in fairness the polling has been somewhat mixed on them).”
