A new Gallup poll shows rapidly declining support for the Supreme Court:

The poll also contains somewhat conflicting data regarding how the public views the Supreme Court’s ideological positions. Although the Supreme Court enjoys rising support among Republicans and rapidly falling support among Democrats, more Americans believe the Court is “too liberal” than believe that it is “too conservative.” A likely explanation of this incoherence is that opinions on the Supreme Court tend to be skewed by the most recent confirmation battle, regardless of whether that battle shifted the Court’s ideological makeup.
