[SOLVED] Legitimacy, or public support or faith

[SOLVED] Legitimacy, or public support or faith

Legitimacy, or public support or faith, is particularly important for the Supreme Court. The Court lacks any enforcement mechanism for its decisions, meaning that there’s nothing to make the president or Congress follow its rulings. For example, in Worcester v. Georgia (1982), the Court held that the Cherokee nation had sovereign rights that could not be overruled by state governments. President Andrew Jackson, who support the seizure of Native lands, reportedly remarked that “[Chief Justice John] Marshall has made his decision, now let him enforce it”. The only incentive elected officials to have to obey court decisions is that the people expect them to and in the event they don’t they expect to pay a political cost for that. If the Court loses its legitimacy that is a crisis for the Court and our systems as a whole. Yet, many recent events have called into question the current levels of support for the Court. Let’s take a deeper look at the role that politics might have played in this.
Prompt for Discussion:
Political scientists Miles T. Armaly and Elizabeth A. Lane use survey research to investigate the impact of increasingly partisan nomination processes on public support for the Court. They use a series of surveys to examine the impact of these events. Read this London School of Economics (LSE) blog post about their findings: https://blogs.lse.ac.uk/usappblog/2022/04/21/when-the-senate-plays-politics-with-supreme-court-vacancies-this-hurts-the-publics-perceptions-of-the-court/.
In your initial post, offer a 1-2 sentence summary of their findings. Then consider what, if any, can or should we do about this. Justify your answer.
