The approval rating from the US Supreme Court remains at record low levels, according to a Gallup poll.
40 percent of respondents in the poll approve of the way the court is handling its job. The court’s approval rating remains unchanged from last September before the start of the term.
The poll was conducted between July 3-27, after another controversial term in which the Supreme Court ruled that race should no longer be considered in college admissions, struck down President Joe Biden’s student loan forgiveness plan, that business owners can refuse to work with LGBTQ customers on free speech grounds and upheld the Voting Rights Act by invalidating Alabama’s Republican drawn congressional district map.
Opinions of the court differ starkly along political lines. 62% of Republicans versus 17% of Democrats approve of the job the court is doing as do 41% of Independents.
