How many Americans can even name one Supreme Court judge? Gallup could have provided some much needed context by telling us how misinformed America is.

Yeah. The supreme court hasn't even decided any landmark cases lately. Any informed person would know the court as a whole leans slightly conservative - 4 liberal, 4 conservatives, and 1 conservative leaning moderate. I take this as kind of base of support for the supreme court in general.
