GOP abortion plank extremely unpopular

Public Policy Polling for Daily Kos & SEIU. 8/23-26. Registered voters. MoE ±3.1% (no trendlines):

Q: Would you support or oppose a constitutional amendment banning all abortions without any exceptions, even in case of rape, incest, or where the life of the mother is threatened?

Support: 13
Oppose: 75
Not sure: 12

Q: Missouri Senate candidate Todd Akin said last weekend that ‘legitimate rape’ rarely causes pregnancy. Are you familiar with Akin’s comments, or not?

Familiar with them: 83
Not familiar with them: 17

Q: Do you agree or disagree with Akin’s comments?

Agree: 4
Disagree: 85
Not sure: 11

I’d point out that, for many Republicans, the language in the GOP platform doesn’t go nearly far enough. They’d like to see doctors who perform abortions get the death penalty. Any bets on how popular that bit of insanity would be?
