New Quinnipiac Poll shows growing support for reforms to the Court as more Americans view the Supreme Court as politicized. The focus of the poll is on the direction the Court is going with Roe v. Wade. But the Court’s attitude to money in politics has also not been terribly popular.
- “Americans support 69 – 27 percent limiting the number of years a Supreme Court Justice can serve on the Supreme Court.”
- “There is majority support among all party groups. Democrats (77 – 18 percent), independents (69 – 27 percent), and Republicans (61 – 36 percent) all support limiting how long a Supreme Court Justice can serve.”
- “A majority of Americans (63 percent) say the Supreme Court is mainly motivated by politics, while 32 percent say the Supreme Court is mainly motivated by the law.” Views of the political nature of the Court do vary by partisan affiliation: “Democrats say 86 – 11 percent and independents say 63 – 32 percent the Supreme Court is mainly motivated by politics, while Republicans say 53 – 42 percent the Supreme Court is mainly motivated by the law.”
