Poll: Majority of Arizona voters disapprove of overturning Roe v. Wade

A majority of Arizona's voters oppose the Dobbs v. Jackson SCOTUS ruling that overturned Roe v. Wade.

That’s according to a new survey gauging voter opinion on the recent decision before the upcoming primary on Aug. 2. 

52% of voters in the state oppose the Supreme Court ruling, while about 90% of respondents think that abortion should be legal in some cases. 

Nearly half of all voters in the poll from OH Predictive Insights said they were more likely to vote after learning the outcome from the high court.

While Democrats said they were more likely to vote in the upcoming elections following the ruling, independents did not show the same motivation. Independents have become the largest voting group in Maricopa County

About a third of GOP Voters responded they were more likely to vote based on abortion.
