Rasmussen Reports [1]
Wednesday, May 26, 2010

Voters have an increasingly unfavorable opinion of Supreme Court nominee Elena Kagan but are more convinced than ever that she will be confirmed by the U.S. Senate.

A new Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey finds that 41% of U.S. voters now hold a favorable opinion of Kagan but 47% view her unfavorably, up from 43% a week ago [2] and 39% just after President Obama announced her nomination [3].



These findings include 15% with a Very Favorable opinion and 23% who regard her Very Unfavorably. This, too, marks a shift from the first survey when Kagan’s Very Favorables were 18% and Very Unfavorables were 17%.

By comparison, the president’s first Supreme Court nominee, Sonia Sotomayor [5], maintained favorables around 50% through the first three surveys following her selection, with unfavorables falling to 40%.
