A slim 51% majority of Americans support federal judge Amy Coney Barrett to fill the U.S. Supreme Court seat left vacant by Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg’s death last month. At the same time, 46% of U.S. adults do not want Barrett to be seated, and 3% do not yet have an opinion of her nomination…

While partisanship has always been a factor in the public’s reaction to prior nominees, the level of opposition to Barrett’s confirmation among Democrats is the highest Gallup has measured to date among those who identify with the party not holding the White House. The 84% of Democrats who stand against Barrett’s nomination exceeds the 67% who opposed Kavanaugh shortly after his nomination as well as the final 78% reading after his contentious confirmation hearings.
