On October 21, the Marquette Law School Poll will release the results of a nationwide survey of public opinion about the Supreme Court. How much do citizens know about the Court? How informed are they about the Constitution? What, if anything, do they think of the justices? With respect to recent decisions of the Court, how much of the public supports or opposes the Court’s rulings? How much is opinion of the Court and its decisions based in partisan or ideological affiliation of voters? Do opinions of the Court influence presidential-vote choices? Does the public see the Court as legitimate?
