Nearly 6 in 10 Approve of Supreme Court

Social Issues & Policy

Gallup News Service, July 19, 2003

The most recent Gallup Poll shows Americans are much more likely to approve than disapprove of the job the U.S. Supreme Court is doing. The large partisan divide in approval ratings evident after the 2000 election controversy has now disappeared, as the recent rulings appear to have lowered Republicansí views of the court. While a plurality of Americans says the courtís recent rulings have been about right, Americans are twice as likely to characterize them as being too liberal rather than too conservative.
