Fifty-one percent of Republicans in the latest poll said they have an unfavorable view of the court, while just 38 percent had a favorable view.
Similarly, Democratic approval of the Supreme Court shot up after the healthcare decision. Sixty-four percent of Democrats said they have a favorable view, compared with 26 percent who are unfavorable toward the court.
Overall, public opinion of the court remained narrowly positive at 51 percent — the lowest Pew has ever recorded. The survey found that only 52 percent had a favorable view of the court in April, the last time Pew asked about the Supreme Court.
