Since Thursday’s ruling that the individual mandate in ObamaCare can survive as a tax, the Supreme Court’s popularity has taken a dive.
According to a Rasmussen poll released Sunday, 28% of those polled say the court is doing a poor job. That is an 11% increase since last week. Plus, the percentage of those who think the court is doing a good or excellent job has fallen by 3 points from 36% to 33%.
@ByronYork I think the approval ratings for the American people by SCOTUS slipped a long time ago

@ByronYork But among the media — approval of SCOTUS is way up!

Of course, Supreme Court opinion polls mean little since the justices are not elected officials.
Why do we need a poll on the #SCOTUS "approval ratings"? We can't vote them out!!

Still, the poll provides a window into the national disgust over ObamaCare.
