- Even those who oppose overturning Roe v. Wade say the economy is a bigger issue for their vote.
- Republicans face risks, with an anti-abortion stance at odds with most voters.

In a new USA TODAY/Suffolk University Poll, even those Americans who oppose striking down the landmark decision recognizing abortion rights say by 2-1 – 59% to 29% – that the economy will be more important to their vote in November. Seven in 10 say the high court’s action would have no effect on whether they choose to cast a ballot.
