"Large Majority of Americans Oppose the Nuclear Option"

Here was the question, asked May 10-12:

Some Republicans in the Senate want to eliminate the ability of Democrats to use the filibuster, or extended debate, to block the Senate from voting on some of President Bush’s judicial nominees. Do you think the Republicans should or should not be able to eliminate the filibuster in this case?

The poll found that 59 percent of Americans oppose the nuclear option and just 28 percent support it.
