Justice John Roberts Now More Popular Among Democrats Than Republicans
After a serious of recent rulings favorable to leftist causes, George W. Bush appointed Supreme Court Justice John Roberts is officially more popular among Democrats than Republicans.
Those recent rulings included one on LGBT protections in the workplace, Trump’s indefinite ending of DACA due to Coronavirus, and another that struck down a law that would’ve limited abortion access in Louisiana. Perhaps that was to be expected from the man who saved ObamaCare in 2012 by defining it as a tax.
Now, according to Rasmussen Reports:
- Democrats are especially enamored with Chief Justice John Roberts, a George W. Bush appointee, who has disappointed conservatives with liberal-leaning votes this year.
- Forty-nine percent (49%) of all Likely U.S. Voters now have a favorable opinion of Roberts, with 13% who view him Very Favorably. Thirty-six percent (36%) regard him unfavorably, including 12% Very Unfavorable. Fifteen percent (15%) are undecided.
- Despite strong Democrat opposition to Robert’s nomination in 2005, 56% of Democratic voters now view Roberts favorably, compared to 47% of Republicans and 41% of voters not affiliated with either major political party.
There’s a sizable chance that a vacancy will open up in the Court sometime in the next four years, and with Roberts’ tilt towards the left, it’s imperative that the next judge is a Trump nominee.
