Every group polled supported President Joe Biden’s “decision to nominate a Black woman to the Supreme Court” except one: Republican-leaning voters.

This week saw several Republican lawmakers ostentatiously attacking Judge Ketanji Brown Jackson — President Joe Biden’s historic pick to the Supreme Court to replace retiring Justice Stephen Breyer. — at her confirmation hearings.

But most Americans approve of Judge Jackson, as well as of Biden’s decision to fulfill his pledge to nominate a Black woman to the Supreme Court — the first such nomination in U.S. history.

Respondents to a new The Economist/YouGov poll were asked “Do you approve or disapprove of Joe Biden nominating Ketanji Brown Jackson to the Supreme Court of the United States?”

A strong 43% to 31% plurality of all respondents said they approve of Judge Jackson specifically, with consistent support across most demographics and splits along partisan lines: Democrats approving, Republicans disapproving, and independents evenly split.

But things changed when respondents were asked the more broad question “Do you support or oppose President Biden’s decision to nominate a Black woman to the United States Supreme Court?”

Among all respondents,  59 percent said they “Strongly support” or “Somewhat support” President Biden’s decision to nominate a Black woman to the Supreme Court, with just 20 percent saying they “Strongly oppose” or “Somewhat oppose” Biden’s decision to nominate a Black woman to the Court.

That result was reflected, to varying degrees, across almost all demographic categories: Gender, Race, age, income, and geography. Support was highest among Black voters, 70 percent of whom said they “Strongly support” or “Somewhat support” President Biden’s decision to nominate a Black woman to the Supreme Court, with 10 percent saying they “Strongly oppose” or “Somewhat oppose.”

The only subgroups not to support the decision were GOP-leaning political ones: 38 percent of Republicans said they “Strongly support” or “Somewhat support” President Biden’s decision to nominate a Black woman to the Supreme Court, versus a 40 percent plurality who “Strongly oppose” or “Somewhat oppose” that decision.

Similar numbers were evident among Trump voters (43% oppose to 34% support) and conservatives(42% oppose to 33% support). Significant majorities of Democrats (84% to 5%) and independents (56% – 21%) said they support President Biden’s decision to nominate a Black woman to the Supreme Court.
