American views on the Supreme Court

For those students fancying a shot of the higher grades this year, this might be an interesting article to read. IT outlines recent research that suggests, post-gay marriage ruling, that the Supreme Court is more unpopular than America than ever before. However it divides this up by party identification which would be useful for any student looking at the importance of the party system in the US. It could also be used in discussing whether the Supreme Court is a democratic institution or not – being unelected and making decisions that have little chance of being overturned whilst being held unfavorably by a large proportion of American society.

For those, like me, with a massive interest in the Supreme Court, it just makes for interesting reading!
