Apr 18 - Most Americans want to end lifetime Supreme Court appointments: poll
 

 
A majority of Americans want to end lifetime appointments for U.S. Supreme Court justices, according to an Ipsos poll for Reuters, though less than half are in favor of other efforts to reform the judiciary.

The national opinion poll, conducted on Thursday and Friday, found that 63% of adults supported term or age limits for Supreme Court justices. Another 22% said they opposed any limits and the rest did not express an opinion.

The poll also found that only 38% would support expanding the size of the court by adding four more justices. Another 42% said they would oppose doing so and the rest were unsure.

Liberal activists and some legal scholars have been pushing for judicial reforms as Republican leaders in Congress built a 6-to-3 conservative Supreme Court majority over the past several years, in part by blocking a Democratic nominee and allowing Republican former President Donald Trump to install three picks during his single term.

Some Democratic lawmakers on Thursday introduced legislation to expand the Supreme Court to 13 justices, a move that they believe would restore public confidence in the judicial branch. But the party's leadership appeared cool to the idea of pursuing that course.

President Joe Biden has formed a bi-partisan committee to look at the merits of adding justices as well as other potential reforms to the court.

While Congress has the power to change the number of justices who sit on the court, legal scholars believe it would likely require a constitutional amendment to end their lifetime appointments.

The poll found that only 49% of Americans have a "great deal" or a "fair amount" of confidence in decisions made by Supreme Court justices. In comparison, 43% of respondents expressed a similar amount of trust in decisions made by the White House and 32% said the same of decisions made by Congress.

The Reuters/Ipsos poll was conducted online, in English, throughout the United States. The survey gathered responses from 1,003 adults. The results have a credibility interval, a measure of precision, of 4 percentage points.

yes, SCOTUS is a fu*king joke at this point when there's no path to ascend to, no qualifications or experience necessary and the justices are indistinguishable from the other million lawyers in the country

SCOTUS needs a complete overhaul to restore it to something credible, in the meantime, you get 10 years after being installed to inflict your unscientifically biased agenda on the country and that's it

imagine a loved one has a heart attack and needs surgery, but the medical staff is 5-4 on how and what surgery your loved one needs

Thats exactly how transplants are decided, by a Transplant Selection Committee...you could be trying to give your mother a kidney and if she has a history of alcoholism or drug abuse the committee will vote no due to ethical considerations...

RBG proved how stupid these old senile members are by not stepping down when Obama wanted her to . No reason why an 80 or 85 year old should hold a job like that .

RBG should've stepped down, but making cognitive determinations without backing it up with credible, scientific screenings is just plain ole ageism

if an 85yr old can accurately answer all the questions a 40yr old can in a timely and coherent manner, what's the problem? well, besides them being out of touch with modern society

that said, all elected officials should submit to a 3rd party cognitive analysis with publicly published results every year

And this is why I can't fu*k with liberals on anything, they're sore fu*king losers, the GOP did the samething the Dems would have done if they'd been in power. And now they're going to spend the next 3.5 years trying to make the GOP pay for doing actual government sh*t.

I hope they get it all done because after 2024 it'll be a long time before you see the dems in power.
