Poll shows public’s continued strong disapproval of Supreme Court

According to a recent poll, most adults still express disapproval of the job being done by the Supreme Court. Additionally, the survey shows that opposition to the 2022 Dobbs decision remains robust among the respondents.

According to a recent poll by Marquette Law School, the Supreme Court’s actions have received approval from 40 percent of adults, while 60 percent expressed their disapproval. These numbers indicate a slight decrease in approval compared to previous polls conducted by Marquette Law School in 2023, where the approval rating ranged between 41 and 47 percent.

According to Marquette Law School polls, the court experienced a decline in approval ratings, reaching a low point of 38 percent in July 2022. This drop in public approval occurred shortly after the justices voted to overturn the landmark case of Roe v. Wade, thereby revoking the constitutional right to abortion. Since then, the court’s approval rating has not surpassed 47 percent, in stark contrast to the 66 percent approval it enjoyed in mid-2020.

In recent years, there has been a significant decline in support from Democrats for the court. Back in September 2020, 60 percent of surveyed Democrats approved of the court, but this number dropped significantly to just 27 percent in February 2024.

According to a poll released on Tuesday, Americans hold divided opinions on the Colorado Supreme Court’s decision to remove former President Donald Trump from the ballots for the 2024 election. Of those who have expressed their views on the matter, 50 percent are in favor of the court overturning the Colorado decision to disqualify Trump, while the remaining 50 percent oppose it.
