The Supreme Court includes three great Justices plus six partisan hacks, including a man who quotes Witch Judges, a zoned-out handmaiden, and a man who has shown more emotion toward beer than in yanking away a woman’s right to choose.
So it shouldn’t be all that surprising that the sparking personalities of these Justices (sarcasm) are being noticed in a big way. And I will offer my most earnest congratulations to the not so supreme court. This is for achieving an incredible milestone — having the lowest poll numbers a Supreme Court has ever had! Congratulations, Court.
In a new Gallup poll. a stunning — brace yourselves — 25% of people have a great deal of confidence in the court. Just 25 percent! Those are really bad numbers. Not just kind of bad, or a little bad — this is a full wipe out bad.
And the poll was conducted between June 1 – June 20. And, of coarse, you know what that means. This was before Roe was overturned! So there is a strong possibility ( or probability) that the numbers are even worse for them now.
What is really striking about the poll isn’t that less than 15% percent of Democrats trust the court. That is to be expected. The shocking part is just 39% of REPUBLICANS trust them a great deal. What in the heck is up with that? It does appear that this just might be the most unpopular Supreme Court that we have ever had. What a prize for them! Such a legacy.
The court will be remembered as a bunch of slick, dishonest, untrustworthy betrayers — by Democrats and Republicans. Congratulations, Gorsuch and Barrett and Thomas and Roberts and Kavanaugh and, of course, Alito. It is no less than you deserve.
