New Survey Examines Younger Voters' Views on Abortion Rights, Shows How Pro-Choice Position Can Be an Electoral Asset for Candidates

A recently completed study conducted for NARAL Pro-Choice America by Greenberg Quinlan Rosner Research found that, despite some recent surveys suggesting a retrenchment on support for a woman's right to choose, the nation remains majority pro-choice; in fact, opinion about abortion is characterized more by stability than change. This research, which focused on the Millennial Generation (people under 30 years of age), also found that younger people are solidly pro-choice, though there is more intensity among anti-choice young people than pro-choice young people. Finally, the research also shows that even in a period of intense focus on the economy and an abortion debate in Congress, supporting a woman's right to choose can be an electoral asset for a candidate running for Congress.

The full memo also references (in footnote five) the recently released Gallup survey showing little generational difference on choice.
