Americans: Cloning

YouGov
January 26th, 2013

In this YouGov poll, the questions are:

1. Suppose it were possible to clone a woolly mammoth (an extinct relative of modern elephants). Should scientists be allowed to clone them?

2. Suppose it were possible to clone a Neanderthal (an extinct close cousin of modern humans). Should scientists be allowed to clone them?

3. Suppose it were possible to clone a Neanderthal, but it would require a human volunteer to be a surrogate mother to the Neanderthal. Should scientists be allowed to clone them?

4. Do you think scientists should be allowed to try to clone human beings?
