Joe Scarborough MSNBC Morning Joe 12-1-21 Joe Scarborough likes to tout himself as a conservative. But on today’s Morning Joe , Scarborough actually made the case against overturning Roe v. Wade in the Mississippi case now before the Supreme Court.
Scarborough repeatedly cited opinion polls showing most Americans oppose overturning Roe, as if that is supposed to guide the Court:
I know people don’t like to think that the Supreme Court looks at opinion, public opinion, but you have, like, seven out of ten Americans saying they do not want Roe overturned. It’s a 50-year precedent starting next year…70% of Americans support Roe v. Wade. The precedent of next year I think, a half-century precedent. You look at this poll from ABC News, and it’s, again, pretty overwhelming. That one says 60% uphold, 27% overturn. Everything I’ve seen from Gallup through the years, overturning is either one-third of Americans or less than one-third of Americans.
