|Judge Brett Kavanaugh|
A new poll by Axios/SurveyMonkey shows the vast majority of Americans want Roe v. Wade to be left alone.
The results of the new survey come as the U.S. Senate is weighing the nomination of conservative Judge Brett Kavanaugh for the U.S. Supreme Court.
Legal eagles are concerned Kavanaugh could flip the high court to a solid conservative bent that might overturn the groundbreaking abortion ruling.
According to the survey, 71% of respondents say they would NOT like to see SCOTUS make abortions illegal, while 23% do support a change in the law.
Axios points out that even rural voters, who skew conservative, want Roe v. Wade to remain the law of the land.
Additionally, the poll found a plurality of Americans disapprove of the choice of Kavanaugh, 48% – 44%.
