Poll: 52 Percent Can't Name a Single Supreme Court Justice

A majority of likely voters were unable to correctly name just one Supreme Court justice, according to the latest C-SPAN/PSB poll.

The results, according to the survey:

  • 52 percent of voters overall were unable to name one High Court justice.
  • 48 percent of voters overall said they could or correctly named a justice.
  • 59 percent of voters identifying as conservatives could not name a justice.
  • 57 percent of voters identifying as liberals correctly named a justice.

Ruth Bader Ginsburg was the most recognizable justice; she was correctly identified by 25 percent of voters, according to the survey.

Anthony Kennedy, the late Antonin Scalia and nominee Brett Kavanaugh were three incorrect responses given by voters who couldn’t name a justice, according to C-SPAN.

However, 53 percent of voters say they hear the right amount about the workings of the Supreme Court, compared to 44 percent who say they hear too little, according to the survey.

Nearly 70 percent of those surveyed said they’ve been following news in recent weeks about Kavanaugh, President Donald Trump’s nominee to the Supreme Court.

PSB conducted online interviews from Aug. 13-15 among 1,000 U.S. likely voters. The margin of error for this study is 3.10 percent at the 95 percent confidence level.
