The Least Hated Branch

The Judiciary (Supreme Court) has the highest approval rating of the three branches of government at 51%. That's kind of like being valedictorian of summer school... not exactly a source of pride. I'm sure that this has something to do with the lower profile of the Court. Most of the public is ignorant of most of their docket. The big cases make the news and cause shifts in approval for a while. Speaking of the big cases, here's some polling info on the recent partial birth abortion cases...

It will be interesting to see how the public reacts when the school-race cases are handed down.
