Contributing sentiments towards policy:

57% :Such strong polling isn't surprising, even in Ohio, where anti-abortion Republicans dominate the legislature and passed a 6-week abortion ban last year.
45% : The proposed amendment, which will go to voters on November 7, would guarantee individuals the right to "make and carry out one's own reproductive decisions, including but not limited to decisions on contraception, fertility treatment, continuing one's own pregnancy, miscarriage care, and abortion."
43% : This trend has held true not just in blue states like California and Vermont, but also in deep-red Kansas and Kentucky, where voters last year rejected proposals to put no-right-to-abortion clauses in their state constitutions.
41% : But in practice, Issue 1 was "100 percent" about abortion, to quote Republican Secretary of State Frank LaRose.
41% : Yet it does allow the legislature to ban abortion after the point of fetal viability, unless a doctor deems it necessary to protect a pregnant patient's health.
39% : On paper, the measure before voters on Tuesday had nothing to do with abortion.
