Between 2014 and 2015, Democratic support for the Supreme Court surged to 76 percent. Meanwhile, GOP approval sunk to 18 percent.

As the Court ruled contrary to Right wing opinion and policy on slam-dunk judicial advocacy cases, conservative satisfaction the Court has waned, while progressive sentiment has sky rocketed. As the Court ruled on Citizen's United voting rights and stop and seizure cases favorably for the Right we never once heard the phrase "judicial activist" from conservatives.
2014 30 second clip of Citizens United "bragging" about the impact of their court cases on issues of today: linked.
June 2015 Jeb Bush bemoaning SCOTUS ruling on ObamaCare: linked video.
The New Republic captured and posted reactions to Same Sex Marriage ruling: linked.
My perception of the Court: Strongly conservative with five "locked-in" conservative Justices on cases that involve civil rights (eg. voting rights, etc). From another perspective, and a perspective that has far reaching impact on the courts legacy, two of the five stalwart conservative Justice often become very open minded follow majority opinion.
With two recent case rulings the Court has gangrened significant progressive support as indicted in the Gallup polling. But, we await decisions in the next Court session that will certainly swing pubic sentiment back to the Right. One such case is the Texas college student affirmative action case: Fisher v. University of Texas. The case is a slam-dunk win for the Right.

Your GOP and its Confederate Flag Army. No, the GOP does not claim the protest revelers, but rest assured these people do not vote progressive.

A question has a resin related to the waving of the Confederate Flag against the nation's president. Oklahoma was not a Confederate State during the Civil War. The question, "Why the flag waving in the state?" The answer is simple and straight forward: "racism."
The next piece only lends to a full post. It is a classic an irrefutable exhibition of over-the-top racism.
CNN, CNN what is going wrong among your production teams? And, were are your getting this talking heads?
DISRESPECTING THE FIRST LADY: ‘FAT TRANNY MOOCH’ SHOULD ‘KNOW HER ROLE AND SHUT UP’ (SCREENSHOTS)
The First Lady of the United States is a beautiful, educated woman who deserved our respect and has earned our admiration. For more than six years she has been a positive role model for women, particularly minorities, and championed the fight against childhood obesity.
To the right-wing extremist, she is a drain on the economy, forces kids to eat beets and drink soy milk, and needs to keep her mouth shut “except when she’s trying to rein in” her husband.
The latest hatefest comes from the most misogynist page on Facebook, Stop Hillary in 2016. A meme posted there and the plethora of stupidity in the comments illustrates just what kind of imbeciles the GOP depends on to keep their base alive:
Michelle Obama is by no means a small woman, but anyone, male or female, would have to agree that if you have enough pictures taken of you you’re bound to find a few that are unflattering. This hate page specializes in just that, and while they tend to focus mostly on Hillary Clinton, every once in a while they can’t help but rile up their fan base full of morons to show enormous disrespect for the President’s wife.
This “issue” stems from Mrs. Obama’s school lunch initiative. The informationally-challenged GOP base has taken it upon themselves to decide that the initiative to help our kids make healthier decisions was somehow mandated by the First Lady in a new “First Lady Order” system where First Ladies have the authority to enact or change federal law.
The law was, in fact, passed by Congress, not Michelle Obama, though she did work with nutritionists and school cafeteria managers to help mold the original bill.
That doesn’t matter to conservatives, who care about nothing other than hating her because she’s outspoken, driven, female, and of course, black.
The ignorance of the comments is absolutely astounding:
The President recently said in a speech that he wants Michelle to have equal pay. What he meant, of course, is that he wants women to be paid as much as men. That quickly turned into a gaggle of goofballs thinking Michelle Obama was going to be paid to be First Lady.
This is exactly the kind of stupidity the GOP loves. She has said out loud that she hates white people? I think we’d all love a link to where that happened, and no, a link to a Rush Limbaugh quote isn’t the same thing.
A Republican’s idea of what a First Lady should be is simple: Silent, always smiling, and white. Michelle Obama would have done much better with these a-holes had she put on a Nancy Reagan mask the day her husband was elected and never taken it off.
Apparently the constitution has been amended to require that those exercising freedom of speech be elected to something.
The fat jokes are almost to be expected, even though she’s in no way fat, but every once in a while you come across a particularly dimwitted simpleton who posts something like “she’s smuggling illegals.”
It’s a true SMDH moment.
Here’s the best one; There’s one in every crowd:
He’s an independent who in a single comment spews no less than half of the right-wing nutjob conspiracy garbage propagandized by idiotic pages like Stop Hillary 2016 and Fox News.
If independents were truly that clueless we’d all be screwed.
That was your conservative America with cloaked racism galore.
We on the Left find much more pride in a true depiction of the FLOTUS.
Racism is so very ugly.....
Of course, some will read the piece ad think, well there was no evidence of racism. And I would not in any way be surprised at the myopic perspective.`
