According to a new poll, a majority of Americans oppose choosing a Supreme Court Justice on the basis of race or gender. 

Following the recent news that Supreme Court Justice Stephen Breyer will soon retire, Biden has promised to nominate a Black woman to fill his seat. Biden also promised several times during his campaign to nominate a Black female justice.  

“Number one, I am committed that if I’m elected president and have an opportunity to appoint someone to the courts, I’ll appoint the first Black woman to the courts,” he said in March of 2020. “It’s required that they have representation now. It’s long overdue.” 

The ABC/Ipsos poll found that 76 percent of Americans say Biden should consider “all possible nominees” to fill Breyer’s seat, while just 23 percent say Biden should consider “only nominees who are Black women, as he has pledged to do. 

Similarly, a recent Rasmussen Reports poll found the majority of Americans oppose choosing justices by race and gender, though most think Biden will do so anyway, the Star News Network reports

The Rasmussen poll found that 59 percent of likely U.S. voters expect Biden to nominate a Black woman.
