Only 47 percent of voters believe President Biden’s Supreme Court nominee Ketanji Brown Jackson should be confirmed, a Tuesday Politico/Morning Consult poll revealed.
While 19 percent oppose her confirmation, many independents are wary of Jackson. Only 39 percent of independent voters say she should be confirmed to the Court, an unusually low number. Forty-three percent have no opinion.
According to Gallup polling, Jackson’s approval rating is less than Barack Obama’s radical nominee Sonia Sotomayor, who had 54-28 approval to disapproval, far greater approval than Jackson’s marks.
Jackson’s polling is also much worse than Justice Samuel Alito’s (50-25 percent), Justice John Roberts’s (59-22), Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg’s (53-14), and Justice Clarence Thomas’s (52-17).
