Paul Collins Quoted in an Article about the Supreme Court’s Lowered Approval Rating

Paul Collins, Professor of Legal Studies and Political Science at UMass Amherst, is quoted in an article about the Supreme Court’s 49% approval rating, which dropped from 58% last year. Collins tied this drop to a sharp decrease in support from Republicans. “This was the first term with the three Trump appointees on the Court and the expectations among Republicans were high that the Court would take a decidedly conservative turn,” Collins explained. “Though the Court did make some significant conservative rulings, the term was largely defined by moderation, which was disappointing to many Republicans.” (Courthouse News Service, 7/28/21)
