Poll: 78% of Americans Oppose Rubber Stamping Judges
A new Associated Press poll shows that 78% of Americans believe judicial nominees should be scrutinized by Congress and do not think Presidents should be given the benefit of the doubt.
More than three-quarters of Americans say the Senate should aggressively examine federal judicial nominees and not just approve them because they are the president's choices.
That's one of the few aspects of this divisive issue that gets widespread agreement, according to an Associated Press-Ipsos poll released Friday....The poll found 78 percent believe the Senate should take an "assertive role" examining judicial nominees rather than just give the president the benefit of the doubt. There were majorities among each political affiliation - Democrats, Republicans and independents.
