A new Washington Post-ABC News poll finds that the vast majority of Americans are vehemently opposed to a recent Supreme Court ruling that opens the door for corporations, labor unions, and other organizations to spend money directly from their general funds to influence campaigns. As noted by the Post's Dan Eggen, the poll's findings show "remarkably strong agreement" across the board, with roughly 80% of Americans saying that they're against the Court's 5-4 decision. Even more remarkable may be that opposition by Republicans, Democrats, and Independents were all near the same 80% opposition range. Specifically, 85% of Democrats, 81% of Independents, and 76% of Republicans opposed it. In short, "everyone hates" the ruling.

The only problem I have with this is that it does set a dangerous precident if we have judgement via popular opinion in this country. ...most all of our past civil rights cases would have been decided oppositely because the prevailing public attitudes at that time were strongly in favor of maintaining status quo.
Im glad folks decided to see this for what it was. I am pleasantly surprised.
Out of your blow hole comes what? We need a couple of judges to retire.
The Supreme Court doesn't run around with their finger in the air taking polls in order to decide a case.
So what's the percentage breakdown for "Roe vs Wade"?
You can change all the rules, laws and regulations you want to. The richest 1% will simply adapt.
