Huge Election Issue: Judges
The unprecedented growth of the Judiciary's hand in influencing social policy is apparently gaining quite a bit of public attention.
"Looking at the U.S. Supreme Court and social issues, American voters narrowly disapprove 43 - 39 percent of the job the Court is doing, the lowest rating in five years of Quinnipiac University surveys on the Court and the first time the Court has received a negative score. Voters say 42 - 33 percent that the Supreme Court is moving in the wrong direction. While 33 percent of voters say the Court is "about right," 25 percent say it is too liberal and 31 percent say it is too conservative."
