Clarence Thomas is Republicans’ favorite Supreme Court justice: Poll

As several recent, hotly-contested confirmation battles have demonstrated, significant segments of the American electorate remain highly engaged when it comes to those who take the bench at the U.S. Supreme Court, and new polling data indicates which justices have garnered the greatest amount of notoriety with the public.

A survey conducted by The Economist and YouGov revealed that solidly conservative Justice Clarence Thomas – a frequent focus of the left’s ire – is the best-loved high court jurist among Republicans, earning a favorability rating of 59%, as Breitbart, reported.

The poll, conducted online between March 6 and 9, utilized a sample of 1,500 American adults and had a margin of error of roughly 2.7%.

Thomas’ high favorability among Republicans was followed closely by impressive ratings notched by recent SCOTUS additions Amy Coney Barrett at 55% and Brett Kavanaugh at 53%, according to YouGov.

Interestingly, the survey found that only Chief Justice John Roberts – tapped for the court by former President George W. Bush – received worse ratings among members of the political party from which his nomination originated than from the opposition party.

A descendant of slaves, Thomas was confirmed to the post in 1991 following a contentious confirmation fight and remains the longest-sitting conservative and the only Black justice currently serving on the high court, as The Hill noted.

Despite his indisputable status as one of the most notable figures in American history, Thomas has long been a favorite target of the left, with his impressive personal and professional history largely downplayed or even ignored by institutions such as the National Museum of African American History and Culture at the Smithsonian. Upon its initial opening in 2016, the cultural attraction referenced Thomas only in connection with misconduct allegations made by former staffer Anita Hill during his confirmation hearings, as Fox News reported.

Last month, technology and e-commerce leviathan Amazon pulled a highly-regarded PBS film entitled Created Equal: Clarence Thomas in His Own Words from its popular Prime Video streaming service, while simultaneously promoting a documentary about Hill’s claims against him.

No matter how hard liberals try to marginalize Justice Thomas and to negate his towering role in American jurisprudence, it is indeed reassuring that Republicans in large numbers recognize and celebrate the contributions he has made.

    or reviews at this place.

  3. Wow, amazing blog layout! How long have you been blogging

  4. I enjoy what you guys arre usually up too. This type
    of clever work and reporting! Keep up the very good works guys I’ve added you guys to
    my own video.

  5. Thomas is a great judge, and he isn’t afraid to say what he thinks. Roberts, on the other hand is owned by the deep state. they say jump. he says how high? he needs to be replaced by someone who will adhere to the constitution, and not beholden to anyone. I have an idea he is just one of many name brand politicians in Washington who are controlled. I don’t understand why ACB hasn’t been more vocal, or at least cast her vote with Thomas and Alito. she acts like a mouse. she answered the questions at her confirmation like a lion. I guess she is in awe of roberts???

  6. Where was this guy 5 months ago. Republicans need to get it together if any chance to clean up what we have now. The white house reality tv series. This whole presidency is nothing more that a real bad hollywood b series. Hope to soon be cancelled……

  7. THE ONLY REASON THEY RAG ON HIM IS BECAUSE HE IS NOT A LIBERAL!!!!!!!! WE NEED HIM ON THE COURT……..I REMEMBER WHAT HE WENT THRU WHEN HE WAS BEING CONSIDERED FOR THE COURT!!!!!!!!! IT WAS AGAIN TERRIBLE ATTACK ON HIM???? IF WE COULD GET RID OF ROBERTS…….IT WOULD BE A BETTER COURT!!!!!!! BUSH PUT HIM IN AND I WONDER IF THERE WAS SOMETHING WE SHOULD HAVE KNOWN THEN???????? BUSH IS A TURN COAT RHINO……..SOOOOOOOOOO

  8. It would appear that legal, written constitutional laws would be something that all the justices would agree on. They’re written simple and without complexity. Then, does that mean that some justices/judges aren’t reading and following the letter of the law and are just doing what they wish? I would consider individuals not obeying the law should be stripped of their position. Forgive me, I’m making the supreme court justices, judges and lawyers sound like members of the House and Senate. I did say – some justices/judges! I’ve been a fan of Thomas from the time he was beaten up so badly by Anita Hill because of the way he presented himself. He still carries himself to this day with the same dignity.

      1. Yes John, it is sad so many don’t know the difference in WAS and IS.

        CLARENCE THOMAS IS A GREAT MAN.

        George
