But Collins has in the past bucked her party and the president, notably with her opposition in 2017 to Trump's education secretary nominee, Betsy DeVos, and to attempts to repeal Barack Obama's healthcare law.
On Sunday she told CNN she did not believe Gorsuch would seek to undermine Roe, because Gorsuch had authored a book on judicial precedent.
"That's a big one".
Collins, a moderate Republican, claimed Roe v. Wade is "settled law" and emphasized her desire for the new Supreme Court justice to adhere to stare decisis, a legal doctrine that binds courts to precedent.

Trump said he plans to have his pick for the Supreme Court in place before the upcoming 2018 midterm elections in November.
"What I want to see is a nominee who, regardless of his or her personal views on the very hard and contentious life issue, is going to respect precedent, regardless", she said. "A candidate for this important position who would overturnRoe v. Wade would not be acceptable to me because that would indicate an activist agenda that I don't want to see a judge have, and that would indicate to me a failure to respect precedent, a fundamental tenant of our judicial system". "If they vote for somebody who's going to change precedent, it could be a career-ending move".
When asked on "State of the Union" whether she thought Justice Gorsuch would vote to overturn Roe v. Wade, Collins said no, adding that she believes Gorsuch, the co-author of a book on precedent, understands that precedent is essential to the US judicial system.
"The president listened very intently to what Lisa Murkowski and I said", she said, noting the Alaska Republican who is also in favor of abortion rights. "As you know, there are many presidents who never get a choice".
The president's words come amid concern from abortion rights supporters that he will nominate a conservative judge who would vote to overturn the landmark case that legalized the procedure nationwide. Trump said he's "been told" he shouldn't be so narrow in his questions, something Bartiromo tied to his 2016 campaign trail promises that he'd "leave it to the states".
"And so I would say to my colleagues ... to not just trust that what somebody says to you in a conversation trying to get your vote is what's going to happen when they are on the Supreme Court", Duckworth said.
