ABC has this poll on the Supreme Court.

President Obama doesn't seem to have too much support for his idea of selecting someone outside the "judicial monastery." 70% think experience as a judge is a positive factor, with 52% saying it is a strong positive factor. Experience in business or politics only drew 35% positive.

Also getting no traction is all the ranting you hear from the left about how the court is presently sharply conservative. Regular folks split pretty much down the middle: 21% too conservative, 26% too liberal, 46% generally balanced, 7% duh.

Affirmative action for the grossly underrepresented Protestant population is also a nonstarter, with 83% saying its not a factor.

Mike Mokrizycki has this analysis for ABC.
