Obama’s SCOTUS Smears are Not Working

President Obama’s campaign to sully the reputation of the Supreme Court is not working.

An NBC News/Wall Street Journal poll conducted April 13-17 found that 33 percent of participants thought the Supreme Court was too liberal and 35 percent thought it was too conservative. It looks like the Supreme Court is generating an equal amount of negativity from both parties, indicating that it is less-partisan than Obama would like us to believe.

After the SCOTUS hearing on Obamacare, which did not go well, Obama said in a press conference that overturning the law would be “unprecedented” and an example of “judicial activism.”

But Obama’s threatening language towards the Supreme Court has not turned into negative job-approval ratings for the Justices. In fact, a FOX News poll found that 56 percent of participants think that Obama tried to intimidate the Supreme Court with his comments.

The poll revealed that even 29 percent of Democrats think that Obama was trying to “strong-arm the justices.”

Arguments for Arizona’s Immigration law will be heard in the Supreme Court on Wednesday. Considering the large number of Americans who support Arizona’s bill, SCOTUS can likely expect more threatening words from Obama. But thankfully, it looks like they won’t be enough to influence it’s approval ratings.

So much for bullying, Obama, you can’t fool America.
