Poll: Clarence Thomas is the most popular SCOTUS justice among Republicans

U.S. Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas is the most popular justice among Republicans, according to a YouGov survey released this week.

The Republican survey respondents selected Thomas with a 59 percent rating, compared with Justice Amy Coney Barrett at 55 percent and Justice Brett Kavanaugh at 53 percent.

Trump appointee Neil Gorsuch ranked fourth at 42 percent.

Only 11 percent of Republicans expressed an unfavorable view of Thomas. Twenty-nine percent selected they weren’t sure.

Thomas is both the longest-serving conservative justice and the only African American in the Supreme Court. He was appointed by President George H.W. Bush in 1991.

In contrast, Chief Just John Roberts was viewed favorably by only 27 percent of Republicans.“Chief Justice Roberts is the sole case of a Justice faring worse with those from the party of the president who nominated them than with those in the opposition party,” YouGov said of the poll results.

“In the last few years, Roberts, who was appointed by President George W. Bush, has cast the deciding vote in a number of cases, occasionally disagreeing with the Court’s conservatives. The most notable example was his vote to uphold the Affordable Care Act (also known as Obamacare).”

Views of Trump’s historic selection of three justices in four years continue to rank high among Republicans. Thomas, however, remains the favorite among the current conservative 6-3 majority in the court.

    1. Clarence Thomas should have been appointed the Chief Justice and not Roberts. Roberts is a Left leaning Democrat, and does not adhere to the Constitution.

      1. I agree, Justice Thomas is the most Senior Justice and believes in the Constitution as written.RINO Roberts is a loser.

        1. Judge Thomas is a great Supreme Court justice. The judicial system has become too political. The justices should always rule the way that the Constitution says, not on the view of the party that appointed them. Justice needed to be “blind” as it was always intended to be.

      2. You just hit the key point of not adhering to the Constitution. The Supreme Court is suppose to be non-partisan and go strictly by the Constitution as well as the rest of Congress and Chin joe. However, there has been laws made and broken that have a gray area and they are suppose to deal in the most correct manner as close to the Constitution as possible. With some justices that is not happening which makes them the laughing stock of law and order.

    2. Hes a fraud. I agree! Hes a danger to our COUNTRY! HAS BEEN for a long time.But if he goes, the dems will choose a judge? Then biden will place obama the mesiah in there and heaven help us.!.

    3. Justice Thomas is the only Justice who wanted to hear the election fraud cases he is good , any judge who refuses to hear important cases regarding the USA & he American people needs to go, they get paid by all Americans taxes, all supreme court justices can travel around the world . Why can they pick & choose what job they want to do 7 what they do not want to do ?

  1. Really American Digest ? Do you even read your ow. Headlines ?
    I’m a out done CD with you guys ! This is downright silly !

  2. The turning left of John Roberts has done more damage to the court system than anyone in history. Has he or his family been physically threaten to the point he cannot no longer be objective in his decisions?
    Democrats have no limit to what they will do to control the courts.

  3. I have always believed Justice Clarence Thomas to be an honorable man. Any time the liberals try to ambush someone, I automatically look into that person’s life and reputation. Judge Thomas was lambasted and ambushed with the typical smokescreen of the democrat party, that he was a womanizer (ya da ya da ya ) and made out to be the villain. All lies of course. I think we should have more black supreme court judges on the bench.

  4. Chingus Roberts is a inbred LIBERAL RINO !! The only position he ranks high in is ,,, kneeling in front of PERV , Hair Sniffing , CREEPY Joe .

      1. Notice Roberts is the most disliked of all the justices regardless of party? Serves him right. And Cavanaugh is now under investigation again for his boyhood antics. He should’ve voted to hear the election fraud evidence and maybe Trump would still be in the white house. Oh well. Serves him right for having no loyalty.

    1. Alito is the other true constitutionalist. We can be thankful for both Thomas and him. I would like to be able to have confidence in some others but I don’t know when to trust them. There should have been enough constitutionalists to have taken up hearings of the 2020 vote fraud evidence.

    2. Hes good. Another serious and honest justice. I remember calling out obama in silence “YOU LIE” during state of the union address.!

  5. Roberts is comprised and will do what democrats want him to do—we can thank old George Bush for this one!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! He should resign but they will not let him——————Epstein’s buddy or was

  6. Of course, Justice Thomas is popular among conservatives. They know a true constitutionalist when they see one, unlike some of the more squishy new ones that are apparently intimidated by the political Justice Roberts. I’m hoping they become more firm in the Constitution when they have more time on the bench.

  7. These people are not there to win popularity contests —- they are there to impartially decide contentious arguments. As long as that governs their actions, I will support them

  8. Arrest biden , harris & 7/8 of Congress & half of the SCOTUS , for sedition & high treason for working for and to only benefit America’s avowed enemies like soros , china & iran . Also for blatantly ignoring their oath of office to preserve & protect the U.S.

  9. From an old southern white lady, wish we had a full bench of Justices Clarence Thomas with his ideals. He has sense enough to know they are not there to legislate from the bench, but make decisions buy the Constitution.

  10. Justice Thomas is thee greatest man he is truth and honor . He’s amazing, I love this man, if I ever get the honor of meeting this great man I would just have to hug him. Truth honor, and American hero. Justice Thomas, Thank you.❤️🇺🇸✝️🎶🎶

  11. Roberts, he’s hiding something. Pelosi has something on him. He really needs to be arrested. For ignoring Constitutional law.

  12. You really hate the number 45 don’t you big tech big money big jerks BIGGER JOKE, AND ITS ON YOU.😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂I’m not backing off from President Trump, you don’t like it go suck an egg idiot big tech ruled by the democrats, who desire communism. Send em to hell.

  13. Justice Thomas, as only the second black American to be appointed to the SCOTUS rightfully had a display at the Smithsonian. It was taken down and a display for Colin Kaepernick replaced it.
