Poll: Americans Largely Split on Supreme Court Packing, Reform


Last week, the Democrat Party formally introduced legislation to pack the Supreme Court. The bill known as the Judiciary Act of 2021 proposes putting four new (liberal) justices on the Supreme Court; Democrats defended this legislation by erroneously accusing the Republican Party of stealing three court seats.

Many Democrats have backed their party’s work to pack the court; however, a minority of leftists are working to distance themselves from this push. Thus far, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, a Democrat, claims that she will not bring the Judiciary Act of 2021 to the congressional floor.

Whether or not Pelosi stands by this (or changes her mind to accommodate the far left as she has in the past) remains to be seen. However, a fresh poll shows that Americans harbor largely differing views on both packing and “reforming” the Supreme Court.
