HOW PATHETICALLY SAD AND UNINFORMED HAS AMERICA BECOME?
As reported at The Hill, according to a recent C-SPAN survey only 43% of likely U.S voters could name “A” Supreme Court Justice. Wow, not all of them, not a majority of them, not even two. What a sad state of affairs. It really makes one wonder just how uninformed of an electorate we rally have in this country that less than half could not name one justice. Making matters worse, probably more than that percentage could name the judges from the final tear of American Idol. Take a good looks below folks, these would be the Justices of the Supreme Court, including the late, great Antonin Gregory Scalia.
What makes matters even more puzzling is that although the majority of respondents were unable to identify a member of the court, 90% of all respondents indicated they felt the Supreme Court had a key impact on their daily life. Let’s understand this, you have no idea the names of the people who impact your lives? HEAVEN HELP US!!!
Only 43 percent of likely U.S. voters can name a Supreme Court justice, according to a C-SPAN survey released Sunday.
The survey comes as President Trump’s Supreme Court nominee, Neil Gorsuch, began confirmation hearings on Monday.
According to the survey, Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg was named more than her fellow justices, with 16 percent of those surveyed giving her name.
Chief Justice John Roberts followed behind, at 12 percent, and Justice Clarence Thomas was named by 10 percent of people surveyed.
The numbers drop off precipitously from there, with just 3 percent naming Justice Sonia Sotomayor.
Justices Anthony Kennedy, Samuel Alito and Elena Kagan were named by 1 percent, while no one among the 1,032 likely voters surveyed named Justice Stephen Breyer, who was confirmed more than 20 years ago under President Clinton.
