A majority of likely American voters believe Senate Democrats should confirm any qualified conservative nominated by President Bush for the Supreme Court.
According to a recent Rasmussen Reports survey, just 24 percent believe Democrats should oppose such a nominee, and 58 percent believe the pick should be confirmed.
With Justice Sandra Day O'Connor's retirement announcement this month and the expectation Chief Justice William Rehnquist will step down, President Bush could make two high court nominations before the term begins in October.
But Senate Democrat leaders have vowed to put up a fight if Bush does not nominate a "mainstream conservative" in the mold of O'Connor.
An earlier Rasmussen poll showed just 17 percent of American voters believe O'Connor is politically conservative.
During the battle over judicial nominations earlier this year, only 22 percent of Americans had a favorable opinion of the filibuster compromise reached by 14 senators.
The latest survey shows Republicans and unaffiliated voters strongly support confirmation. Democrats are evenly divided – 43 percent say their senators should vote to confirm while 38 percent take the opposite view.
The divide among Democrats is strictly along ideological lines, the poll taker said. Fifty-eight percent of liberal Democrats want their party to oppose confirmation of a qualified conservative. Fifty-eight percent of moderate and conservative Democrats take the opposite view.
The survey also found 64 percent of men, and 53 percent of women believe Senate Democrats should vote to confirm a qualified conservative nominee.
That view is shared by 61 percent of white Americans and 50 percent of other Americans.
Another survey this year showed that 42 percent of Americans have a favorable opinion of the U.S. Supreme Court. Nearly as many, 41 percent, have an unfavorable opinion.
The poll data also indicated liberal voters have a higher opinion of the Supreme Court than conservatives.

    ...actually -- I would think most people would think that.

    Forgetting liberals and conservatives, there is a pretty cut line between democrats and republicans (which typically follows trends of liberals and conservatives).

    I think its been the case for a long time now that democrats (perhaps liberals) tend to want the government MORE in their lives, while republicans (perhaps conservatives) tend to want the government OUT of their lives.

    I think much of that comes from the basis of economic reasoning, but all the same, I think it holds pretty solid.

    ...more examples I just thought of to make the point more valid.

    Liberals generally want the government to setup healthcare, homeless shelters, poverty programs, education programs, whereas conservatives generally do not, and would rather they be privatized if anything.

    Liberals are generally in favor of taxation for the sake of spreading the wealth, conservatives generally prefer that what is theirs, is theirs.

    Liberals generally favor the government involving itself in world affairs (albeit in a peaceful way), conservatives generally favor the government only defending itself and its assets when necessary.

    The list goes on, but it follows the logic that liberals would tend to prefer the courts deciding on things, whereas conservatives would generally prefer the government not interfere with daily life.

    It's the same logic that pushes liberatarians onto the conservative side of the graph since liberatarians generally want to leave everything up to the people.
