The majority of American voters are opposed to President-elect Donald Trump building a border wall between the United States and Mexico and are in favor of abortion, stances that contradict Trump's views, according to a new survey.

The Quinnipiac University Poll also found that 60 percent of people want a pathway to citizenship put in place for illegal immigrants.

Key findings from the poll:

  • 67 percent are in favor of Roe v. Wade, which made abortion legal in the U.S.
  • 55 percent oppose a border wall, compared to 42 percent who are for it.
  • Of voters who want a potential Supreme Court nominee's opinions taken into consideration, 51 percent said Trump should not nominate a justice who would vote to restrict abortion rights.

"Two of President-elect Donald Trump's signature campaign mantras get a hearty thumbs down. Voters to Trump: No way on reversing Roe v. Wade and not a chance on building that wall," said Tim Malloy, assistant director of the Quinnipiac University Poll.

Voters do agree with Trump on other issues, however:

  • 83 percent are in favor of increasing federal spending to improve the nation's infrastructure.
  • 50 percent are in favor of "suspending immigration from terror prone regions, even if it means turning away refugees from those regions," compared to 44 percent who said the opposite.
  • 64 percent want the U.S. to renegotiate major trade deals with other countries.
