A Quinnipiac University poll released today found that 52 percent of Virginians opposed the state’s new ultrasound law. Men were more strongly opposed to the law, with 56 percent disapproving, compared to a plurality of women, 49 percent. Majorities of independent voters and Democrats also said they are against the ultrasound requirement. When asked whether the government should pass laws to try and convince women to change their minds about seeking an abortion, 72 percent of respondents said they should not, including 57 percent of Republicans.
