Majority of Democrats and young voters want to see the Supreme Court abolished, poll finds

A majority of Democrat voters say the Supreme Court should be abolished for its racist and misogynistic practices, according to a recent poll commissioned by the Heartland Institute.

In addition, 54 percent of young people aged 19 to 39 concur, regardless of their political association.

The survey of 1,025 U.S. voters was divided among party lines, with 53 percent of Democrats in favor of abolishing the current Supreme Court and replacing it with a “new, democratically elected . . . court with justices chosen by the American people directly,” and 33 percent “strongly” in favor. Only 21 percent of Republicans and 38 percent of independents favored the ill-advised proposition.

While a majority of the aforementioned young voters want the Court abolished, only 37 percent of all voters agreed, results from the Rasmussen poll taken in early July showed.

A whopping 67 percent of Democrat voters argue the Supreme Court is a “fundamentally sexist institution that favors men over women,” while only 18 percent of Republicans and 36 percent of independents share that opinion.

On the issue of race, 56 percent of Democrats believe the court is “a fundamentally racist institution” compared to only 14 percent of Republicans, 29 percent of independents and 34 percent of total voters.

On the ridiculous posited notion that the United Nations should be allowed to overrule the U.S. Supreme Court if it finds a decision to be violative of human rights, only 47 percent of Democrats opposed the idea, with 39 percent in favor and 11 percent undecided.

Republicans were decidedly against the fantasy proposal of UN oversight at 77 percent with 17 percent in favor of it. Thirty-seven percent of total voters agreed, but young voters aged 19 to 39 were 48 percent in favor, a number that decreased significantly with age. Only 27 percent of those aged 40 to 64 thought UN oversight was a realistic idea, down to nine percent of those aged over 64.

While a majority (54 percent) of total voters maintained a favorable opinion of the Supreme Court, less than half of the women, young voters and black voters polled agreed.

“What this poll shows is that a majority of Democratic voters are utterly delusional about public policy and completely out of step with the vision most Americans have of their country,” said Justin Haskins, the Heartland Institute’s Editorial Director.

“Not only do most Democrats now have radical opinions about alleged racism and sexism at the Supreme Court, but they also want to substantially pack the court and even abolish it in its existing form–reforms opposed by the vast majority of other demographics.”

“More than a half-century of liberals running America’s K-12 schools and colleges has clearly paid off,” said Haskins. He urges school reforms in order to educate young people on the Supreme Court’s purpose as the judicial branch of the federal government.

“The United States as we know it will not survive the next century if half of its population believes the Supreme Court is a racist, sexist institution that ought to be completely dismantled.”
