Survey: A Majority of Americans Don't Want Obama On The Supreme Court

Last week, Hillary Clinton “loved” the idea of appointing Barack Obama to the Supreme Court if she becomes President.

“Wow, what a great idea. No one has ever suggested that to me, I love that, wow,” the Democratic presidential candidate responded. “He may have a few other things to do but I tell you that’s a great idea.”

However, a new Rasmussen Report, states that a majority of Americans think that having Barack Obama on the Supreme Court is actually a bad idea.

A new Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey finds that only 21% of Likely U.S. Voters think the next president of the United States should name Obama to the U.S. Supreme Court. Fifty-nine percent (59%) oppose such a nomination. Twenty percent (20%) are undecided. (To see survey question wording, click here.)
Even among his fellow Democrats, just 40% think an Obama nomination to the Supreme Court is a good idea. Eighty-two percent (82%) of Republicans and 65% of voters not affiliated with either major party are opposed.

Of course, some are speculating that the entire Clinton Q & A is nothing more than a feeble attempt to bribe Obama in order to keep Clinton from being indicted.
