WASHINGTON (UrduPoint News / Sputnik - 23rd September, 2021) The approval rating of the US Supreme Court has hit a new low of 40% in September, down from 49% in July following a series of unpopular decisions, a new Gallup poll revealed on Thursday.
The rapid fall of the US Supreme Court's popularity among Americans can be tracked to a number of unpopular decisions over the summer, including the cases when the court declined to block a controversial Texas anti-abortion law as well as to support a Biden administration attempt to extend a moratorium on evictions during the ongoing coronavirus pandemic, according to a press release accompanying the poll.
Democrats, Republicans and Independents are less likely to say they approve of how the US Supreme Court performs its duties. Only 36% of Democrats, 41% of Independents and 45% of Republicans today approve of the Supreme Court compared to 49%, 53% and 57% respectively in September of 2020, the poll found.
