On abortion, persistent divides between – and within – the two parties

Abortion has long been a contentious issue in American politics and one that splits deeply along partisan, ideological and religious lines. Today, a 57% majority of Americans say abortion should be legal in all or most cases, while 40% think it should be illegal in all or most cases.

The latest Pew Research Center political survey finds deep disagreement between – and within – the parties over abortion. In fact, the partisan divide on abortion remains far more polarized than it was two decades ago.

Here is a look at the some of the current numbers:

Should abortion be illegal?
Republican 65%
Democrats 34%
Conservatives 71%
Liberals 8%
