Voters Would Not Punish Effort to Expand Supreme Court

Michael Albertus and Guy Grossman: “Our research finds a majority of Americans would not oppose a court expansion scheme like the one president Franklin D. Roosevelt proposed but failed to enact. Indeed, a noteworthy minority would actively support it.”

“One of our strongest findings is that few respondents wanted to punish an incumbent who reshapes the court for partisan ends. This finding is consistent with past research that shows many American voters support empowering popularly elected officials, even at the expense of checks and balances and other features of liberal democracy.”
