U.S. Supreme Court Justice Approval

While it still fares much better than the legislative branch, a recent New York Times/CBS News poll indicated that the U.S. Supreme Court's popular approval rating has dipped to 44 percent.

Predictably, many of the comments to the article reference Citizens United.
