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  and 39% just after President Obama announced her nomination .

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 , maintained favorables around 50% through the first three surveys following her selection, with unfavorables falling to 40%.
