It is no secret that the Democrats want to increase the US Supreme court, but new polling of American voters suggests that doing so is not popular. Democrats cry that the court is too radical- but it is the left that is too extreme.
According to recent polls, a majority of people do not want to expand the number of justices appointed to the supreme court. However, the idea has been advocated by the left for a long time.
