The presidential candidates are clearly divided on the issue of abortion. One side is committed to upholding Roe v. Wade and keeping abortion legal and safe. The other side firmly believes Roe is a bad decision and should be overturned, and that the abortion decision should go back to the states.

When it comes to reproductive rights, who believes what? And does this matter to the American public? Are voters swayed by the opinions of the presidential and vice presidential candidates on abortion? Or is this just one of many issues they consider when deciding whom to vote for?
