(PatrioticPost.com)- The Democrats and the media’s ongoing information warfare against the US Supreme Court appears to be having the desired effect.
A new survey from the Pew Research Center found that the Supreme Court’s favorability rating has plummeted in the wake of the information operation prompted by the June ruling that overturned Roe v. Wade.
The survey, released on September 1, showed that 48 percent of respondents viewed the court unfavorably, a nearly 20-point increase from just two years ago when only 29 percent had an unfavorable view.
In 2020, 70 percent of respondents had a favorable view of the Supreme Court. But now, only 49 percent view the court favorably.
So, mission accomplished guys.
If you spend all your time attacking the Supreme Court, calling it “extreme” and “illegitimate,” public opinion will be affected.
And because Democrats are easily influenced by information warfare, the drop in favorability was most significant among Democrats and Democrat-leaning Independents, going from 67 percent favorable in 2020 down to 28 percent today.
Among Republicans and Republican-leaning Independents, the drop in favorability was negligible, falling from 75 percent in 2020 down to 73 percent today.
In August, Gallup found 55 percent of respondents disapproved of the Supreme Court while only 43 percent approved. As with the Pew survey, Democrats were the most resentful, with only 13 percent approving of the Supreme Court. Meanwhile, 74 percent of Republicans approved.
The Pew survey also revealed just how uninformed American voters are about the Dobbs decision. In overturning Roe v. Wade, the Supreme Court made it clear that it does not have the power to legislate on abortion which is why it sent the issue back to the voters in the states.
However, the Pew survey found that 45 percent of respondents believe the Supreme Court “has too much power.”
Really? Because they gave the power back to states?
Unsurprisingly, 64 percent of Democrat respondents believe the Supreme Court ceding power back to the states means the Court “has too much power.”
