Survey Shows Sharp Differences in How McCain Supporters and Obama Supporters View Proper Role of the Supreme Court:
Rasmussen Reports recently conducted a survey of 1,000 likely voters and asked survey respondents the following question:
Should the Supreme Court make decisions based on what's written in the Constitution and legal precedents or should it be guided mostly by a sense of fairness and justice?The responses revealed a sharp difference between the views of McCain supporters and the views of Obama supporters:
While 82% of voters who support McCain believe the justices should rule on what is in the Constitution, just 29% of Barack Obama’s supporters agree. Just 11% of McCain supporters say judges should rule based on the judge’s sense of fairness, while nearly half (49%) of Obama supporters agree.Hat tip: lkcjpd.
