The poll comes after Biden said Thursday that he will announce his nominee before the end of February, and that the candidate will be a Black woman. Among Democrats, 54% supported considering all nominees regardless of race and gender. Just 23% of those polled wanted Biden to restrict his list of nominees to Black women.
The poll, which was conducted Jan. 28-29 with Ipsos Public Affairs’ Knowledge Panel among a random national sample of 510 adults, also found that 43% believe that the Supreme Court is partisan, and that justices rule “on the basis of their partisan political views.”
