President Joe Biden’s nominee for the Supreme Court, Ketanji Brown Jackson, has been confirmed by the Senate. A new poll shows support for the newest justice on the nation’s highest court.

The poll of almost 900 North Carolinians was conducted by the High Point University Survey Research Center in the last two weeks of March.

More people said then that Jackson should be confirmed over those who said she should not, by a margin of about 15 percent.

Forty-seven percent of respondents said they approved of the job that the Supreme Court was doing. That was the same response that Gov. Roy Cooper received and was higher than the approval of either President Biden or Congress.

Highest marks went to how the court handles such issues as COVID-19, presidential elections and interpreting the Constitution. Lowest marks concerned long-controversial topics including immigration, congressional redistricting and abortion.
