The Supreme Court’s approval rating has dropped by 10 percent following the leak of a first draft opinion indicating the court might overturn Roe v. Wade.
According to a report by The Washington Times, a new survey showed that 44% of Americans approve of the job the high court is doing according to the Marquette University poll released on Wednesday.
The same survey showed that 55% of Americans currently disapprove of the job they’re doing, which is a change from March of this year when roughly 54% approved of the court and 45% disapproved.
Frustration amongst liberals has been on the rise since the landmark abortion rights case that allowed the nation to kill tens of millions of unborn children became a cause of serious conversation following the leak
“The responses were gathered May 9-19, roughly a week after the draft opinion was leaked. Pollsters surveyed 1,004 adults, and the results have a margin of error of plus or minus 3.9 percentage points,” the Times reported.

Currently, the court is hearing a case brought by Jackson Women’s Health Organization, which is the state’s only abortion clinic, and an abortion doctor, according to court records.
The clinic provides abortions up to 16 weeks of gestation and has challenged the state’s Gestational Age Act which took effect in 2018 and bans abortions after 15 weeks unless there is a medical emergency or severe abnormality in the unborn child.
