More than half of likely voters believe that Supreme Court justices will rule according to their own political beliefs on Obamacare, according to a new poll from The Hill.

Only 27 percent believe the judges will “make impartial decisions based on their reading of the Constitution,” while 56 percent expect the supremes to lean toward their own political views.

The view that the nine justices will be biased runs across all demographics of the poll, with 54 percent of whites feeling that way, 59 percent of blacks, 56 percent of Republicans, 59 percent of Democrats, 54 percent of conservatives, 56 percent of centrists, and 59 percent of liberals.

Opposition to Obamacare remains strong. Half of the poll’s respondents believe the Supreme Court should overturn the law, while only 42 percent think the court should sustain it.

Among women, 52 percent of likely voters oppose Obamacare, compared to 39 percent who support it. Among men 48 percent disapprove of the healthcare law, compared to 45 percent who approve of it. That difference matches the poll’s 3 percentage-point margin of error.

The only categories to show majority support for Obamacare were blacks (74 percent), Democrats (71 percent) and liberals (75 percent). Even among the youngest voters — those ages 18-39 — 47 percent oppose the healthcare law, and 42 percent support it.
