Poll Finds Broad Support for Assisted Suicide

By Mark Pazniokas

In a boost for controversial legislation now before the General Assembly, a Quinnipiac University poll released today found broad support among Connecticut voters for allowing doctors to prescribe drugs to help terminally ill patients end their lives.

Voters favor the concept by nearly a 2-1 margin, with support cutting across political, age and gender lines. The independent survey is consistent with a poll commissioned by Compassion & Choices, a group campaigning for passage of the bill.

Quinnipiac found support was 63 percent to 31 percent among men, 58 percent to 33 percent among women, 51 percent to 42 percent among Republicans, 66 percent to 28 percent among Democrats and 63 percent to 31 percent among independents.

Youngest voters, aged 18 to 29, support it, 63 percent to 28 percent. Among voters over 65, the support was 54 percent to 37 percent.
