Americans are once again tilting strongly pro-life, according to a new Gallup poll that found the percentage of those saying they are pro-choice on abortion is at its lowest point in decades.
The poll, released Wednesday, found 50 percent of Americans said they are pro-life, while only 41 percent said they are pro-choice — lower than any time since 1995, when the polling company began asking the question.
In that first survey, 56 percent said they were pro-choice and just 33 percent described themselves as pro-life.
Gallup said the drop in pro-choice identification crosses party lines, though over the last year there’s been a 10 percentage-point drop among independents, from 51 percent down to 41 percent, and among Democrats, from 68 percent down to 58 percent.
