  • Most Say Supreme Court Follows Constitution, But Some Still Say Changes Needed

    Several top Senate Democrats warned the U.S. Supreme Court last week to change its current judicial direction or else face restructuring. For the first time in over 10 years of surveying, most voters agree the high court is correctly guided by the U.S. Constitution but also don’t disagree that change is needed.

    A new Rasmussen Reports national telephone and online survey finds that 43% of Likely U.S. Voters agree with this statement – “The Supreme Court is not well. And people know it. Perhaps the Court can heal itself before the public demands it be ‘restructured to reduce the influence of politics.’ ” Thirty-four percent (34%) disagree with the statement contained in a court brief filed by five Democratic U.S. senators. Twenty-three percent (23%) are not sure. (To see survey question wording, click here.)
