Thumbs Up For the Supreme Court, Thumbs Down For Congress

Sixty-one percent of Americans approve of the job the Supreme Court is doing, whereas fifty-seven percent would like to replace all of Congress.

This really doesn't mean much, since most Americans don't know much about the cases that go before the SCOTUS, much less the legal technicalities involved in their opinions, and historically Americans always give low approval to Congress, given the natural bickering, slow progress, etc.

Just to long as the SCOTUS seems to be doing its job, without much controversy, the public will give it the benefit of the doubt and thus a high approval rating. I doubt 1 in 20 Americans could name one case before the Court this year.
