Democrats Should Run Against the Supreme Court

“[T]he Court has become deeply unpopular, with over 60 percent of Americans disapproving of its job. This comes at a time when the judiciary arguably has more power over Americans’ lives than at any other time. Research shows that most voters believe the Court is conspiring to protect Trump on his immunity claims and that opportunities exist for candidates to run on opposition and reforms to the Court. The Biden campaign should take note. The president’s standing with voters lags far behind Senate Democrats. The reasons for this are complex, and things could change before November. But right now Democratic policies are popular; Donald Trump and the Supreme Court are not.” (06/07/24)
