A Fox News poll out yesterday found that about two-thirds of Americans say they don’t want to see Roe v. Wade overturned, even though respondents were evenly split on whether abortion should be legal — the latest evidence that most Americans don’t understand the legal landscape Roe has created.

The poll surveyed about 1,000 registered voters across the country between September 12 and September 15 and found that 65 percent of voters say Roe should be allowed to stand compared to 28 percent who say it should be overturned.

But when asked whether abortion should be legal, respondents were perfectly split: Forty-nine percent said it should be legal, and 49 percent said it should be illegal. The pro-life position had gained several points since the last time poll Fox News took on this question.
