Judge Ketanji Brown Jackson, President Joe Biden’s Supreme Court pick, has more initial support for her confirmation than any of the three jurists nominated by then-President Donald Trump, according to a new Morning Consult/Politico survey.
The strong initial showing for Jackson, who has been pegged to replace Justice Stephen Breyer after the upcoming court term, will come as welcome news for a president looking for a political victory as his domestic agenda remains on ice and he deals with a crisis abroad.
But despite the historic proposition of seating a Black woman on the nation’s highest court, voters do seem to recognize the relatively low stakes her nomination poses to the court’s ideological balance.
The latest Morning Consult/Politico survey was conducted Feb. 25-27, 2022, among a representative sample of 2,004 registered U.S. voters, with an unweighted margin of error of plus or minus 2 percentage points.
