Only 47% think Joe Biden’s Supreme Court Nominee should be confirmed

According to a Tuesday Politico/Morning Consult poll, only 47% of people believe President Biden’s Supreme Court candidate Ketanji Brown Jackson should be confirmed.

Judge Ketanji Brown Jackson has maintained her public support ahead of her Supreme Court nomination hearings this week.

Many independents are wary of Jackson, even though 19 percent oppose her confirmation. Only 39% of independent voters believe she should be confirmed to the Supreme Court, which is a historically low number. Forty-three percent are undecided.

When you look at the data, you’ll notice that they’re a result of strong Democratic support for her appointment to the court, as well as apparent unawareness among independents and even GOP voters.

According to Gallup polls, Jackson has a worse popularity rating than Barack Obama’s radical candidate Sonia Sotomayor, who received 54 percent approval to 28 percent disapproval, a significantly higher approval rate than Jackson.

Jackson’s polling is also significantly lower than that of Justices Samuel Alito (50-25 percent), John Roberts (59-22), Ruth Bader Ginsburg (53-14), and Clarence Thomas (52-17).

Jackson’s popularity is similar to that of the much-maligned Justice Brett Kavanaugh before his confirmation hearings began in 2018. According to a Fox News survey, 45 percent of people support Kavanaugh’s confirmation and 46 percent reject it.

Jackson’s low approval rating could be due to voters’ attention being drawn away from Biden’s tumultuous presidency.

Americans have faced record-high gas costs, forty-year-high inflation, a record number of fentanyl deaths, a southern border incursion, supply chain problems, and coronavirus regulations in the last year.

With a margin of error of 2 percentage points, the Politico survey sampled 2005 voters from March 18-21.
