77% of Americans say the Supreme Court should uphold Roe v. Wade in some form, according to an NPR/PBS NewsHour/Marist Poll released on Tuesday.

Why it matters: This is one of the highest recorded shows of support for Roe v. Wade in more than four decades. Gallup reports that the previous highest recorded peak in that time was in 1997, when 61% of Americans believed abortions should be legal only under certain circumstances.

  • The Pew Research Center says support for legalizing abortion in all or most cases has not risen above 60% since 1995.

Details: 61% of NPR survey respondents said they favored some limitation on abortion such as during the first three months of pregnancy (23%); only in cases of rape, incest or to save the life of the woman (29%); or only to save the life of the woman (9%).

  • The average support for legal abortion in cases of rape or incest is 79%, according to Gallup.
  • NPR's poll showed that Republican women— at 62% — were the only majority to oppose abortion at any time during pregnancy in cases of rape or incest.
  • 26% of Americans want to see Roe v. Wade remain in place, with more restrictions added, per NPR's poll.

The big picture: The most restrictive abortion laws in generations are currently spreading across America's red states, while other states are pushing protections for abortion rights and internationally recognized brands threaten to forge a financial stake in the abortion debate.

Meanwhile: Health organizations say abortion should be available as needed for reproductive health.

Between the lines: All interviews for the NPR/PBS NewsHour/Marist Poll were conducted in English, which could limit demographics included in the survey.

  • Interviews for this survey of 944 adults were conducted via landlines and mobile phones. Results are statistically significant within ±4.5 percentage points. Interviews were conducted May 31 through June 4, 2019.

Biden gets mixed grades on revolving door

President Biden is getting mixed marks for his reliance on industry insiders to staff his administration during its first 100 days.

Why it matters: Progressives have leaned on the new president to limit the revolving door between industry and government. A new report from the Revolving Door Project praises him on that front but highlights key hires it deems ethically questionable.

Exclusive: Sen. Coons sees new era of bipartisanship on China

The Jan. 6 insurrection was a "shock to the system," propelling members of Congress toward the goal of shoring up America's ability to compete with China, Sen. Chris Coons (D-Del.) told Axios during an interview Thursday.

Why it matters: Competition between China's authoritarian model and the West's liberal democratic one is likely to define the 21st century. A bipartisan response would help the U.S. present a united front.

By the numbers: States weighing voting changes

Georgia is not alone in passing a law adding voting restrictions, but other states are seeing a surge in provisions and proposals that would expand access to the polls, according to data from the Brennan Center for Justice.

Driving the news: Just Wednesday, the New York State Assembly passed a bill to restore voting rights to convicted felons who have been released from prison.
