Rasmussen: 39% Say Supreme Court Too Liberal, 25% Too Conservative

As President Obama prepares to nominate a replacement for retiring Supreme Court Justice John Paul Stevens, 39% of voters nationwide believe the Supreme Court is too liberal. The latest Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey finds that 25% think the high court is too conservative, and 27% feel the court’s ideological balance is about right.

At the same time, 45% believe that justices nominated by Obama will be too liberal, while 41% believe the nominees will be about right.

Overall, 35% of voters believe the Supreme Court is doing a good or an excellent job. Just 22% say the court is doing a poor job. Those figures are little changed from a month ago.
