. . . for the first time in 15 years. The majority of Americans have typically been pro-choice since Roe v. Wade (except for a few moments during the Regan administration). But a recent poll which you can see here has shown that the opinion has shifted. 51 percent of Americans are now pro-life.
There are more interesting statistics at the site as well: more people believe that abortion shouldn’t be allowed under any circumstances. Pro-choicers have actually gone down a bit over the years.
I’m sure the numbers will change. Throughout history, people’s view of abortion changes usually with whoever is President. I predict the pro-choice opinion will go up slightly, but probably no higher than 55 percent.
