2020 Survey Results

The 2020 SCOTUSpoll Survey was conducted online using a nationally representable sample of 2,000 American adults by the polling firm YouGov between April 29, 2020 and May 12, 2020. The poll’s margin of error is ± 2.2%.

The purpose of the survey is to assess how people would feel about the actual case outcomes as opposed to the legal arguments or jurisprudential considerations. We therefore focus on the major cases from the 2019-2020 term as identified by important media outlets. 

For most of the issues (LGBT rights, undocumented immigrants, abortion, President Trump’s tax records, the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau, the Affordable Care Act), a majority of Americans support the liberal position.

This poll is coordinated by Stephen Jessee (UT-Austin), Neil Malhotra (Stanford), and Maya Sen (Harvard).
