Americans, by a wide margin, believe the Senate should consider President Barack Obama's nomination of Judge Merrick Garland for the Supreme Court now, rather than waiting until there is a new president to decide the issue, a new Quinnipiac University poll shows.

By the numbers:
  • 62-33 percent say the Senate should consider Garland while Obama is in office;
  • Democrats agree by 87-8 percent;
  • Independents agree by 63-31 percent;
  • Republicans oppose,  62-33 percent;
  • 48-27 percent of voters overall agree with Garland's nomination;
The poll was conducted by telephone from March 16-21, of 1,451 registered voters nationwide, and carries a  margin of error of plus or minus 2.6 percentage points.

There was support shown for Garland's consideration among men and women, and among all racial and age groups surveyed, with Republicans being the only group opposing.
 
The poll also found that just 29 percent of American voters are "very satisfied" or "somewhat satisfied" with the way things are going in the nation today, and 70 percent are "somewhat dissatisfied" or "very dissatisfied."
