New Gallup poll It offers interesting insights into the Supreme Court’s confirmation after its major rulings on abortion, guns and other issues. At 43 percent, the Supreme Court’s overall approval actually rose three points. While within the margin of error, it was higher than last year’s 40 percent approval rating. The poll followed Justice Elena Kagan’s surprise comments that the court could lose its legitimacy by undermining public opinion on issues like abortion.

This slight increase is not due to a stable base of supporters, but to a shift among Democrats and Republicans. The most significant change among Republicans was from 29 percent support to 72 percent. This offset the Democrats’ drop from 23% to 13%.

The 43 percent rating puts the Supreme Court roughly where it was in 2005, 2013, 2014, 2016 and last year.

Among independents, approvals remain around 40 percent (down slightly but in line with previous years).

There is also a stark difference in gender, with women disapproving at 61% versus 49% among men.

The low level of Democratic support is worrying given the pressure from Democrats Gather the court With an immediate liberal majority and other reckless proposals. Now that the court has a conservative majority, many Democrats have turned on the court and its members.

Kagan’s opinion echoed criticism from Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D., Mass.) that the court improperly ruled out the issue.Widespread public opinionWarren used the lawsuit to justify his request for a raw packing of the court to create an immediate liberal majority.

However, this survey shows a deep gap regarding the court and its legitimacy after the recent rulings. Despite significant variation by political affiliation, the overall approval rating shows considerable support for the Court.

A 43 percent approval rating is still far better than that 18 percent for Congress That’s half of Congress’ peak last spring, when it was just 36 percent, according to a Gallup poll. It is also higher than President Biden’s popularity It is 38 percent.

Fortunately, the court is designed to withstand such pressures and voting. Judges are expected not to reflect the demands of the popular vote, but rather to reflect the demands of the Constitution in deciding cases.
