LANSING, Mich. (WLNS) – After a leaked Supreme Court draft showed that Roe v. Wade may be overturned in the near future, pro-choice advocates took to the streets in front of the Supreme Court, demanding that Roe remains settled law.

Despite the Supreme Court’s alleged move to overturn Roe, a 2020 AP VoteCast poll found that 69% of voters in the presidential election said the Supreme Court should leave the Roe v. Wade decision as is; just 29% said the court should overturn the decision.

That poll was national. What about Michiganders?

Polls dating back to September 2018 that were conducted by pollster Bernie Porn and EPIC-MRA have shown that the majority of Michiganders are consistently pro-choice and believe that women have the right to an abortion.

In every poll, between 50% and 58% of Michiganders described themselves as “pro-choice” and between 34% and 44% consider themselves “pro-life.”

Between 5% and 10% didn’t give an opinion.

These polls are conducted statewide with a sample size of around 600 with a margin of error of plus or minus 4%.

Respondents were asked:

Do you think of yourself as pro-choice, meaning that you support allowing women to have the right to an abortion, or do you consider yourself pro-life, meaning that you oppose abortions, except when it is necessary to save the life of the mother?

Here’s how they responded in each poll:
