Polling Roe

From the WSJ (sub only):

U.S. support for Roe v. Wade is at its lowest level in decades, according to a new Harris poll.

For 33 years Harris Interactive has been measuringattitudes toward the landmark Supreme Court decision that madeabortions legal during the first three months of pregnancy.

The latest telephone survey of 1,016 adults indicates Roe v. Wade is supported by a slim 49% to 47% plurality, compared with 52% who favored the decision in 2005 (see poll2) and 57% in 1998.

As you might expect, much more in Party of Death.
