Supreme Court approval rating


This is the biggest partisan divide in opinion of the Supreme Court in Gallup's 15-year time tracking the court's approval rating.

The finding isn't too surprising. After both of the latest Supreme Court decisions, President Barack Obama and Democrats applauded the rulings.

So this is really a reflection of the political polarization that's going on across the country on multiple issues.
