Fox News poll:
A record 46 percent of voters support expanding the number of justices on the Supreme Court. Americans are starting to see that this Court is too partisan, too religious and too conservative. I can even say that the SCOTUS is far-right.https://t.co/M0l8LwizsL

According to the Fox News poll, the results are up 35 percent since the same poll last year.

The rapid change in American voter attitudes on the issue may be related to growing partisanship in the court. Regardless of the reasons, the new poll shows now nearly half of voters are open to the controversial change that has stood for more than one and a half centuries.
