Supreme Court Poll is Danger Zone for President Obama

President Obama needs to be careful. This summer he could get his first opportunity to nominate a Supreme Court Justice. He may want to have a look at a new Rasmussen Poll before he makes his pick. Read below:

Nearly two-thirds of U.S. voters (64%) say U.S. Supreme Court decisions should be based on what is written in the Constitution, but only 35% think President Obama agrees with them.

Twenty-seven percent (27%) say high court rulings should be guided by fairness and justice, and nine percent (9%) are not sure which is more important, according to a new Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey.

A slight plurality of voters (38%) say Obama thinks the Supreme Court should base its decisions on fairness and justice. Twenty-seven percent (27%) are not sure.

The whole poll is here.

Don’t hold your breath that President Obama is going to side with the majority on this one. Obama has talked in the past about how “fairness” and “justice” are extremely important attributes he wants to see in a Justice.

If you think a stimulus bill will get partisan, wait until President Obama announces his Supreme Court nominee. That’s when he’ll be tested in trying to bring both sides together.

Talk about making an assumption with poll numbers that is just plain backwards.

Sorry but I believe that christians are smart enough to see through this.

There is no reason for Obama to tread softly... the 35% of the 64% is the same as the number of Americans willing to admit that they are REPUBLICANS!!!

Without the numbers of republicans / democrats / independants this survey just reinforces what is common knowledge... Obama has the whole hearted support of everyone BUT the NO TO ANYTHING Obama bashing republicans.

Thanks for your time and remember to pray for our country and the leaders of our country!!!
