Hillary Clinton's suggestion that President Barack Obama could be a good appointment to the U.S. Supreme Court under her administration is not sitting well with Americans.

A new poll conducted by Rasmussen Reports finds that only 21 percent of likely U.S. voters think the next president of the United States should name Obama to the nation's high court.

Another 59 percent oppose such a nomination and 20 percent are undecided, according to the poll.

Even among his fellow Democrats, just 40 percent believe an Obama nomination is a good idea. Eighty-two percent of Republicans and 65 percent of voters not affiliated with either major party are opposed.

The findings come despite Obama's lofty credentials — he graduated from Harvard Law School and taught constitutional law for 12 years at University of Chicago Law School.

The poll also found voters would not be in favor of Obama serving a third term in the White House — a sentiment that follows the president's vow last July that he would win a third term if the law allowed.

Just 31 percent say they would vote for Obama in for a third term, but 62 percent say they would not support him. But Obama has the support of 60 percent of Democrats if a third term was possible.

The survey of 1,000 likely voters was conducted on January 28-31 and has a margin of sampling error is +/- 3 percentage points.

Rasmussen Reports is a nonpartisan electronic media company specializing in the collection, publication and distribution of public opinion polling information.
