The US poll showed 12% support for human gene editing to increase intelligence. There was also 19% who were neither for or against human gene editing to increase intelligence.
 
China’s support or undecided combined levels for human gene editing to increase intelligence or physical capabilities is likely over 50%.
 
Nextbigfuture is pretty sure that the support for human gene editing for a specific disease that is an imminent threat to the person being asked will be about 95%.
 
Nextbigfuture is pretty sure that the support for human gene editing for life extension will be over 90% as this is shown to clearly be effective and safe. The support will also be high if the gene editing life extension reverses aging to enable people to have less aging damage.
