6 in 10 Americans want Roe v. Wade changed

More than six in 10 Americans say they want the U.S. Supreme Court’s landmark abortion ruling Roe v. Wade to be reinterpreted to allow additional restrictions on abortion, a new survey has found.

A new survey of over 1,066 adults aged 18 and older conducted last week and released on Tuesday asked participants what they would want to happen if the Supreme Court one day reconsiders the 1973 ruling, a possibility that some abortion advocates fear with the slight conservative majority of the bench.

The question posed is one of the newest questions asked of respondents to an 11th-annual Marist Institute for Public Opinion poll conducted for the Catholic fraternal organization Knights of Columbus on abortion rights. ...

Fair points. But only in a broad sense are Baptists anywhere near as significant as they are very fragmented: usually, a one-man show per congregation, and no hierarchy. Noisy televangelists like Falwell have been the exception.

Catholics, on the other hand, love worldly power much more, which I think explains the predominance of papists among conservative "movers and shakers" like Sean Hannity and Pat Buchanan (he, like many influential Americans, studied at Georgetown, a Catholic/Jesuit college).

There is almost no public criticism of the Roman State-Church in America other than on certain policy stances. You can call the pope a misogynist perhaps, but never the Anti-Christ.

Good points, "Neil" though I doubt many Catholics have moved from Dem to Rep. Next question is whether their priests have made it a point that the Dem Party is always in favor of abortion.
I think the last time they made a stand on this was during the campaign for one of the Bushes. A friend told me that people were outside her church handing out abortion leaflets on Sunday, pointing out the Dem support for abortion.
Today, the 'official' Church position would be to say that the immigration question carries more weight than abortion. As you say, most of those coming in across the open border are Catholics, so they see it like a way of keeping themselves in business.
Another side point not mentioned so far is that the Catholic Church is the largest church in the USA. Next in line are the Baptists.

First, since this survey is done for a Catholic group, they need to ask themselves why did so many of their own members vote for Democrats? What were they thinking?
I think I know why: Up to the 1960s at least, American Catholics (e.g. from Poland, Germany, Ireland, Italy, Latin America) mostly voted Democratic since official church teaching agrees on most policy questions like Social Security, wage/price controls, welfare, "social justice," etc. Big Gov't and Big Church go together. Since then, Roe V. Wade and LGBT explains many Catholics moving towards the more WASP-ish Republicans.

Also, the RCC, like Democrats, supports unrestricted Latin American immigration as it enlarges their church population and thus political power. Conservative commentators (as on Fox News) don't talk about this much because they are Catholic themselves, or are afraid to antagonize them.

And I thought the Knights of Columbus died off along with the International Order of Odd Fellows and the Masons!
Well, there is so much irony here that I don't know where to start.
First, since this survey is done for a Catholic group, they need to ask themselves why did so many of their own members vote for Democrats? What were they thinking?

From NBC / Wall Street journal done in July of 2018:
Carrie Dann wrote:
Voters also say that they are more likely to vote for a political candidate who supports abortion rights rather than for one who opposes them. Forty-four percent of voters said they would be more likely to vote for a pro-abortion-rights candidate, while 26 percent said they would be more likely to support a candidate who backs restrictions on abortions. About three-in-ten — 29 percent — said that a candidate’s views on abortion would make no difference to their vote choice.

Those preferring candidates who advocate for abortion rights include 68 percent of Democrats, 49 percent of independents and just 15 percent of Republicans. That’s compared with nine percent of Democrats, 24 percent of independents and 46 percent of Republicans who said they would be more likely to support a “right to life” candidate....

Timothy, you made several good points.

Great news if it could be proven, but the sample is far too small to be meaningful, and the polling organization is obviously biased.
