The vast majority of Democrats are unhappy with the Supreme Court’s work, according to a newly-published nationwide poll in the wake of unfavorable Supreme Court decisions.

A “record-low” 13% of self-described Democrats said they approved of the Supreme Court’s handling of its job, according to a Gallup poll released Tuesday. The results come after the court overturned Roe v. Wade, limited the Environmental Protection Agency’s authority to regulate coal-fire power plants, and invalidated New York concealed carry laws.

The Supreme Court saw its overall approval rating sink from 43% to 40% since the same poll last year, according to the poll. Republicans showed 74% support for the nation’s highest court, reportedly falling short of their historic record.

Supreme Court satisfaction among independents registered at 40%, roughly in between partisan totals.

In a July Rasmussen and Heartland Institute poll, 64% of Democratic respondents said they would somewhat or strongly support legally raising the 9-judge body’s membership to 13. Republicans strongly opposed this idea at the same rate.

Moreover, 33% of Democrats strongly supported democratically electing justices, while one-fifth said they would somewhat support that change, according to the Rasmussen-Heartland survey.

Over two-thirds of Democrats at least somewhat agreed that the Supreme Court is a “fundamentally sexist institution that favors men over women,” while more than half expressed some belief that it is “fundamentally racist.” Less than 45% of all respondents somewhat or strongly agreed with either assertion.

Gallup surveyed more than 1,000 adults over the phone from July 5 to 26 and used 4% margin of error.
