A plurality of Americans believe the Supreme Court’s ideological makeup is “about right,” a Gallup poll conducted prior to Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg’s death revealed.
According to Gallup, which conducted the survey prior to Ginsburg’s death, a plurality of Americans believed the court was, at the time of the survey, well-balanced.
Gallup asked respondents, “In general, do you think the current Supreme Court is too liberal, too conservative or just about right?”
Similarly, a plurality of Republicans, 48 percent, said the court was well-balanced, although 44 percent chose “too liberal,” and three percent said “too conservative.”
A majority, or 58 percent, of Democrats considered the high court too conservative, and 28 percent believed it was “about right.”
