Despite the controversy surrounding its latest member, voter approval of the U.S. Supreme Court which began its latest session this week remains higher than it has been in years. Voters also clearly think President Trump with his two nominations to the high court has moved it to the right.
A new Rasmussen Reports national telephone and online survey finds that 43% of Likely U.S. Voters think the Supreme Court is doing a good or excellent job. Sixteen percent (16%) rate its performance as poor. (To see survey question wording, click here.)
The survey of 1,000 Likely Voters was conducted on October 7-8, 2019 by Rasmussen Reports. The margin of sampling error is +/- 3 percentage points with a 95% level of confidence. Field work for all Rasmussen Reports surveys is conducted by Pulse Opinion Research, LLC. See methodology.
