59% Approve of Supreme Court Performance, 25% Disapprove

Fifty-nine percent (59%) of voters approve of the way the U.S. Supreme Court is performing its job. A Scott Rasmussen national survey found that 25% disapprove and 16% are not sure.

Those totals include 17% who Strongly Approve and 7% who Strongly Disapprove.

These figures are consistent with many years of polling data. The Supreme Court is consistently viewed more favorably than any other branch of government.

Approval comes from 65% of Democrats and 61% of Republicans.

As on many topics, independent voters are less engaged: 40% approve and another 40% are not sure.

Sixty-three percent (63%) of Hispanic voters approve along with 62% of Black voters and 59% of White voters.

Voters who prefer the policies of former President Donald Trump or Senator Bernie Sanders offer modestly lower opinions of the Court performance than those who prefer traditional Republican or Democratic policies.

The online survey of 1,000 Registered Voters was conducted by Scott Rasmussen on June 29-30, 2021. Field work for the survey was conducted by RMG Research, Inc.   Certain quotas were applied, and the sample was lightly weighted by geography, gender, age, race, education, internet usage, and political party to reasonably reflect the nation’s population of Registered Voters. Other variables were reviewed to ensure that the final sample is representative of that population.
