GOP turns on judge
Justice John Roberts’ popularity has plummeted
Supreme Court Justice John Roberts isn’t a popular guy with Republicans these days, according to a new Gallup poll. The judge famously cast the swing vote that upheld the constitutionality of the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act of 2010, aka Obamacare. Roberts was well regarded the last time Gallup polled members of the GOP, but his image has plummeted big time since the health-care-law vote. Meanwhile, not surprisingly, his popularity is on the rise with Democrats. Here’s a look at how Roberts fared during the recent poll (July 9-12) compared to September 2005.
