A new Emerson College Polling survey in Florida finds 42% of voters plan to vote yes on the November ballot measure that will provide a constitutional right to abortion before fetal viability, 32% are unsure, and 25% will vote no. 

“Fifty-six percent of Democrats and 44% of independents plan to vote in favor of a constitutional right to abortion before fetal viability,” Spencer Kimball, executive director of Emerson College Polling, said. “Republicans are more split: 36% plan to vote no, 30% yes, and 34% are unsure.”

A majority of voters (57%) find the six-week abortion ban that will become state law next month is “too strict.” Fifteen percent think it is not strict enough, and 28% think it is about right. Regarding the current 15-week ban, 43% think it is too strict, 21% think it is not strict enough and 36% think it is about right.

Fifty-nine percent say they are more motivated to vote than in previous elections, 13% are less motivated than usual, and 28% feel about the same motivation as usual.
