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.
