More Americans in a new poll say they wouldn’t vote for a candidate who doesn’t share their views on abortion, a critical issue rising among women as conservative legislatures pass strict abortion restrictions.
Three in 10 Americans surveyed said that they would only vote for a candidate running for a major office if they shared the same views on abortion, according to the CNN poll released Thursday.
That percentage is higher than any time CNN has polled on this topic since 1996, the network noted.
Gender was the biggest contributing factor in the poll, not political party, it added.
Thirty-three percent of all women — including 42 percent of independent women and 39 percent of nonwhite women — consider abortion a critical issue.
Only 26 percent of men said the same in the poll.
That compares to the 33 percent of independents, 29 percent of Democrats and 28 percent of Republicans who said that abortion views are a decisive factor for potential candidates.
Twenty percent overall say they don’t see abortion as a major issue. Forty-five percent said they would consider a candidate’s stance on abortion, but would not base their votes on it, according to the CNN poll.

The Democratic National Committee also included repealing the Hyde Amendment in its 2016 platform.
The poll also comes after a series of GOP-majority legislatures in Georgia, Alabama, Missouri and other sates enacted laws sharply restricting abortion access.
The laws were designed to challenge the Supreme Court’s landmark 1973 Roe v. Wade ruling legalizing abortion nationwide.
The CNN Poll was conducted by SSRS May 28-31 among a random national sample of 1,006 adults. It has a margin of error of 3.8 percentage points.
