The U.S. Supreme Court has been the most trusted branch of government among voters for more than a decade -- and while that still holds true, faith in the court is now near its lowest. In addition, the number saying the executive branch is their most trusted stands at a new low.
When asked which of the three branches of government they trust the most, 35 percent of voters choose the U.S. Supreme Court, according to the latest Fox News Poll. Thats down from 45 percent in February 2017. A record-low 33 percent chose the court in June 2005.
The executive branch is chosen by 18 percent, down from 26 percent two years ago.
Thirteen percent pick Congress as the branch they most trust, that remains unchanged.
Confidence in the Supreme Court is down across groups, with some of the biggest shifts coming from Democrats (down 30 percentage points since 2017), millennials (-21), and women (-15).
As Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg continues to recover at home from a December surgery, the poll finds shes the best-liked member of the court, at least for those who can name a favorite.
Overall, 22 percent couldnt name any of the current Supreme Court Justices.

I call BS
Whos your favorite Supreme Court Justice?
Right! If there weren’t pictures of her, no one would know that she ever existed.
The 3 branches doesn’t add up to 100, is their a fourth branch?
The 3 branches doesnt add up to 100, is there a fourth branch?
An she soon be gown ...
She’s just popular because they turned her into a Lego character.
That may not be BS.
Without Scalia what Justice has a strong following? RBG is probably the most popular justice due to the left and also the most disliked justice due to the right.
Why should we believe anything in this poll?
I no longer watch Fox. I don’t trust them. How many liberals did they poll compared to the number of Conservatives? After ALL the outrage against the outrageous and disgusting treatment towards Kavanaugh we are supposed to believe RBG is the most popular??? Me thinks not!!! I’m also having a hard time believing that Democrats trust the Supreme Court, especially after the disgraceful treatment they gave Kavanaugh. Everything about this poll smells.
Less than half could name a single Justice. RGB got 18% because she has a Hollywood biopic getting advertised right now.
Poll was probably taken in the D.C. area where the most popular branch of government is Deep State! :)
No regrets giving up FOX!
Another bull sh*t poll trying to shape public opinion!
These are democrats. Their math skills are "one, two, lots..."
Im surprised Jay Z didnt make the cut. Average American doesnt know his ass from his elbow so a vote for RBG doesnt mean squat.
All this poll tells us is who the new Fox News viewers are. I dropped them six months ago.
I am not sure this is accurate but worth a watch: https://www.spreely.com/videos/28176/30688/whistleblower-reveals-truth-about-ruth-bader-ginsburg-health
Because of complications with pneumonia and infections at the surgical site RBG is the deserts Nevada.. ??????
