Approval Ratings for Supreme Court Slide Following ObamaTax Ruling

Americans believe the court is much too liberal.

(NY Mag)

The Supreme Court took a hit following the shocking ObamaTax ruling this week.
Rasmussen reported:

Public opinion of the Supreme Court has grown more negative since the highly publicized ruling on the presidentâ??s health care law was released. A growing number now believe that the high court is too liberal and that justices pursue their own agenda rather than acting impartially.

A week ago, 36% said the court was doing a good or an excellent job. Thatâ??s down to 33% today. However, the big change is a rise in negative perceptions. Today, 28% say the Supreme Court is doing a poor job. Thatâ??s up 11 points over the past week.

The new Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey, conducted on Friday and Saturday following the court ruling, finds that 56% believe justices pursue their own political agenda rather than generally remain impartial. Thatâ??s up five points from a week ago. Just half as many — 27% — believe the justices remain impartial. (To see survey question wording, click here.)

Thirty-seven percent (37%) now believe the Supreme Court is too liberal, while 22% think it’s too conservative. A week ago, public opinion was much more evenly divided: 32% said it was too liberal and 25% said too conservative.
