The survey taken September 22 to 24 comes from the pollster rated A+ by 538. The main finding of the poll was that Joe Biden has a national lead of 49% to 41% over Trump.
Questions were also asked about support for Roe versus Wade. Siena found that 62% say they support the 1973 court decision while 20% are opposed and 18% were undecided or gave no opinion.
In addition the survey asked, “Would you be more or less likely to support President Trump if he appointed a Supreme Court justice who would overturn Roe v. Wade?” The responses were: 15% were much more likely to support Trump if he made such an appointment and 9% were somewhat more likely to support him. On the other side, 44% said they were much less likely to vote for Trump if he appointed a judge who would overturn the decision, and 12% were somewhat less likely to vote for him.
