Amazing! Right-wing Republicans see the Supreme Court as liberal rather than conservative!
This is incredible.
By any objective measure, the U.S. Supreme Court is now more conservative than at any previous time in my life — and I’m in my eighth decade.
But conservative Republicans, most of whom presumably know little or nothing about the high court, generally take a different view, as we see HERE:
Almost half of conservative Republicans believe the United States Supreme Court is liberal under its current conservative majority, according to a Pew Research Center poll released Monday.
Forty-five percent of conservative Republicans said the high court is liberal, as opposed to 39 percent who find it “middle of the road.” Only 9 percent of conservative Republicans said the Supreme Court, led by Chief Justice John Roberts, is conservative.
Moderate-to-liberal Republicans held less of an impression that the court is liberal, with 29 percent reporting that perception, but just 15 percent of the group described the court as conservative.
Not surprisingly, results among Democrats were essentially the opposite. Forty-eight percent of liberal Democrats said the court is conservative, whereas a mere 15 percent viewed its ideology as liberal.
