Gallup poll finds trust in Supreme Court at historic low, down 20 points in two years

Source: USA Today

WASHINGTON – Americans’ trust in the Supreme Court and its job approval ratings have significantly dropped in the last two years, reaching historic lows, a Gallup poll has found.

Only 47% of Americans said they had a “great deal” or “fair amount” of trust in the high court, a 20-percentage point drop from 2020 and a 7-percentage point drop from the previous year. This year marks the lowest trust level among Americans since 1972.

Job approval of the Supreme Court also took a hit, as only 40% of those polled said they approved of the job done by the court, an 18-percentage point drop from 2020, tying for the lowest approval numbers found by Gallup.

As the overall approval of the court has dropped, approval is split among partisan lines, with the majority of Republicans still viewing the high court positively. Sixty-seven percent of Republicans trust the Supreme Court — a 6 percentage point increase from 2021 — compared to only 25% of Democrats, a 26-percentage point drop from 2021.

8. So what does a poll about approval

Matter with the Supreme Court? Nothing we can do about it. We have what we have, regardless of opinion. We’re screwed. Am I right?

10. Actions that involve doing "nothing"

People don't have to do what the SCOTUS says, it has no enforcement powers.

12. Have we considered jury nullification for any laws that this SCOTUS may pass?

SCOTUS makes a ruling
Laws are passed because of that ruling
Jurors nullify those laws

22. We could unpack the supreme court by appointing more judges

The GOPers would do it in a heartbeat by hook or crook.

We could impeach a few Supremes who have broken the law. The right wing would do it.

We could pass laws that contradict the Supreme's rulings, err legislation, if we ever control both houses.

And yes we can just ignore them. But how do you ignore them when your state arrests you for getting an abortion? How do you ignore their unconstitutional rulings if your state is more than willing to carry out the Supreme's unconstitutional legislation from the bench?

Ignoring them never worked when it came to slavery.

THAT'S what we should change. And right away! NO MORE of that.

17. Almost like the more conservative it gets, the less people trust it. Hmm...

And of course, everything Trump touches dies. And he's touched the Supreme Court way more than he had a right to.

21. Partly, but mostly it's the fault

of selfish protest voters who felt Hillary Clinton wasn't perfect. If people were too stupid and selfish to know that America justice system was on the ticket should not reproduce.
