As the Supreme Court takes up two landmark same-sex marriage cases this week, a new poll finds the court’s approval rating remains close to an all-time low.

A Pew Research Center survey of 1,051 adults released Monday found that 52 percent of Americans view the court favorably, while 31 percent view it unfavorably.

Those ratings have changed little since July of last year, when the high court had a 51 percent approval rating, the lowest since 1985, according to Pew figures.

Republican views of the court are slightly more favorable today when compared to where they stood last June after the court upheld Obamacare. The court approval rating among GOP voters then tumbled from 56 percent to 38 percent. Today, the approval rating among Republicans has crawled back up to 47 percent.

Favorable impressions of the court among Democrats, meanwhile, have slipped. Last July, the approval rating was 64 percent. Today, it’s 56 percent.

The poll, conducted March 13-17, also found that 52 percent of independents have a favorable impression of the court overall.
