Multiple polls have now found Americans’ opinion of the Supreme Court plummeting in the wake of recent decisions expanding gun rights and overturning Roe v. Wade.
One of those polls was a survey conducted by the progressive consortium Navigator Research, which found the high court's net favorability plunging 26 points since February to 44% favorable, 47% unfavorable.
The net changes Navigator noted between February and late June among specific demographics are fascinating.
Here's how the net change in favorability among demographics rank from the largest drops to the smaller ones. (Note: Some demographics aren't mentioned at all.)
- Liberal Democrats: -57
- 2020 Biden voters: -52
- College women: -44
- White-collar: -40
- Suburban: -39
- Service industry: -34
- Women: -32
- Independent women: -30
- Ages 18-34: -30
As Navigator notes, the groups that have moved most against the court are younger, female, suburban, liberal Democrats, and independent women. Those demographic groups likely give us some insight into the voters most ticked off by the Supreme Court’s latest decisions and, in some cases, those most motivated to turn out in November.
