42% : She said the past 50 years have seen a "culture" of abortion "that was created by seven men on the Roe vs. Wade court who got it wrong."
40% : While the abortion ban could help DeSantis' conservative credentials in Republican primaries if he chooses to make a 2024 presidential run, recent cases of abortion being a key motivator for Democratic voters, such as the party's win in Wisconsin's Supreme Court race, show it could be a thorny issue for DeSantis in a general election.
37% : Whether 2024 Republican primary candidates support a national ban on abortion has been a litmus test for anti-abortion rights groups.

21% : Former South Carolina Governor and United States Ambassador to the United Nations Nikki Haley said in February she would not support a "full out federal ban" on abortion, and said in Iowa on Wednesday that she doesn't "want unelected judges deciding something this personal."Senator Tim Scott of South Carolina said during a trip to New Hampshire on Thursday that he would sign a 20-week national abortion ban as president, according to local station WMUR-TV.
