Democrats currently control both the White House and Congress — though tenuously — and they’re wasting no time pushing through their radical agenda while they have the chance. One of the biggest items on their agenda is packing the Supreme Court with liberal justices to ensure that there are fewer checks and balances against their leftist proposals.
However, a new poll released by Mason Dixon Polling and Strategy this week found that a whopping 72 percent of independent voters are opposed to packing the courts, which could spell major trouble for Democrats looking ahead to upcoming elections.
The poll specifically asked respondents:
Do you feel President Joe Biden should or should not back a plan proposed by Congressional Democrats to increase the number of Justices of the Supreme Court of the United States from nine members to thirteen members?
Of the 1,100 participants in the study, 95 percent of Republicans said “no,” along with 72 percent of independents and even 33 percent of Democrats.
It’s not good news for Democrats that need independents to continue voting for them in order to stay in power. A drastic overhaul of the Supreme Court could be a bridge to far for millions of similar voters, destroying Democrats’ long-term plans to stay in control of Washington D.C.
Democrats have been fairly transparent about their motivation to attempt to add justices to the historically nine-judge panel, making it even more difficult to sell to moderate voters.
Democrats admitted during a press conference on April 15 that the radical legislation to pack the Supreme Court is for political reasons. Sen. Ed Markey (D-MA) said legislation to pack the Supreme Court from 9 justices to 13 is necessary because Republicans “broke” the Court through legitimate appointments.
“Make no mistake about it, the Court is broken because Leader Mitch McConnell and his Senate Republican colleagues and Donald Trump broke it,” Markey stated.
Rep. Mondaire Jones (D-NY), who was also at the press conference, said during Thursday’s legislative announcement that Americans could not have “nice things” without packing the Supreme Court.
In fact, proposals to hijack the high court for leftist ends are so unpopular that there is a growing bipartisan movement nationwide to approve a constitutional amendment that would permanently fix the number of judges on the court at nine.
