A majority of voters believes the winner of the presidential election should fill the Supreme Court seat left open by the death of Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg, a new poll found.

In the survey released Sunday of likely voters conducted by Siena College for the New York Times, taken in the days before President Donald Trump nominated Judge Amy Coney Barrett to the high court, 56% said they preferred the winner of the Nov. 3 election choose the next justice; 41% said they wanted Trump to choose before then.

Among likely women voters, 62% says the pick should be post-election; 63% of independents said the same, as did 60% of college-educated white voters.

The survey showed voters were split on whether the Senate should act on Trump’s nomination: 47 percent of voters said it should, 48 percent said it should not, and 5 percent were undecided. 

In other findings, the poll found:

  • 60% think abortion should be always or mostly legal; 33% think it should be always or mostly be illegal.
  • 50% say they trust Joe Biden to do a better job choosing a Supreme Court justice; 43% say Trump would do a better job choosing.
  • 57% say they support the Affordable Care Act; 38% oppose it.
  • 49% of likely voters support Biden; 41% prefer Trump.

The poll had a margin of error of plus or minus 3.5 percentage points.
