Over the past couple of months, the U.S. Supreme Court handed down rulings on a number of controversial issues, but public confidence in the Court remains strong. The latest ScottRasmussen.com national survey found that 60% of voters approve of the way the Supreme Court is doing its job.

Additionally, 40% of voters believe the ideological balance of the Court is about right. Thirty-six percent (36%) see it as too conservative, and 24% say it’s too liberal.

Most voters — 52% — believe the Court has the right amount of power. However, 38% believe it has too much. By way of comparison, 47% believe the president has too much power and 45% say the same about Congress. Fifty-six percent (56%) believe appointed government officials have too much power.

Views about the Supreme Court have remained stable over the past year. That’s better than any other governing institution. Despite the predictions of many, the divisive Kavanaugh hearings had no impact on public perceptions of the Court.
