Most voters do not trust SCOTUS to make the 'right decisions' regarding 2024 election cases

As the 2024 election nears, many believe that the U.S. Supreme Court will ultimately be involved in potential election deciding decisions. 

According to The Hill, that could pose a massive problem for the high court, as a new survey revealed that most voters do not trust the Supreme Court to make those final rulings.

The CNN poll, published on Monday, revealed that voters do not trust the high court to make "the right decisions" regarding any legal cases that arise as a result of the 2024 election results.

Survey respondents were asked how much they trust the Supreme Court on such matters, with "58 percent of respondents said either 'not at all' or 'just some,' at 23 percent and 35 percent, respectively."

The survey also revealed that only 11% of respondents trust the high court "a great deal" and 31% said they only trust it "a moderate amount."

Conducted at the end of January, the poll revealed a difference in opinions from Democratic and Republican voters, with Republican voters giving the high court a higher confidence rating overall.

The Hill noted:

Among Democrats, 63 percent of respondents had either no trust at all, at 27 percent, or just some trust, 36 percent. The poll found higher opinions of the court amongst Republicans, 48 percent of whom said they had either no trust, 17 percent, or just some trust, 31 percent. Independents held similar views to Democrats.

That's not surprising given that the Supreme Court currently has a 6-3 conservative majority, with three of the current conservative justices having been appointed by former President Donald Trump.

While many election-related issues could land at the steps of the Supreme Court, many believe that the most likely situation could involve Trump.

That's because he still faces 91 total charges across four indictments, two state-issued and two federally-issued.

He's currently the presumptive GOP presidential nominee, short of something unprecedented happening. His only rival, former South Carolina Gov. Nikki Haley, still trails Trump in most polls by double digits.

Should Trump claim the nomination and move forward toward the general election against President Joe Biden, some of his court cases could play out in a trial and could, theoretically, lead to a conviction on one or more charges.

If that situation were to happen, the Supreme Court would undoubtedly need to get involved given the unprecedented and unique circumstances it would cause.

Only time will tell if the high court ultimately has to step in. It's truly sad that so many Americans do not trust it to make the right calls.
