2020 election early exit poll: Voters support stricter gun laws, protecting Roe v. Wade


Voters came out in favor of stricter gun laws, transitioning to a government-run health care plan, protecting Roe v. Wade and providing a pathway to citizenship to illegal immigrants, according to Fox News’ first round of exit polling.

Asked by the network’s polling division about the nation’s gun laws, 55 percent of American voters polled said they should be more strict. Only 12 percent said they believed that the laws should be less strict, while 33 percent said they should be kept as is.

The network’s polling also found that on issues of immigration and abortion, voters skewed heavily to the left.

On the question of what should happen to illegal immigrants in the United States, 72 percent of voters said that they should be given a pathway to citizenship, while only 28 percent said that they should be deported.

When asked about the potential for action by the Supreme Court on the landmark abortion case Roe v. Wade, the network found that 71 percent of voters wanted the case left as is.

Only 29 percent supported overturning the law.

Voters also expressed unease about the impacts of climate change, with 46 percent describing themselves as very concerned and 26 percent as somewhat concerned.

A mere 18 people described themselves as not too concerned, while just 10 said they were not worried at all.

The numbers come just after CNN released its own early exit polling, which found that voters ranked saving the US economy over the surging coronavirus crisis as their most important issue.
