It seems that the more time that passes since President Obama's nomination of Elena Kagan to the Supreme Court, the lower her measure of support tallies among the American people.
The latest Rasmussen poll shows that 47% of Americans hold an unfavorable view of Kagan, with only 41% favoring her - putting her upsidedown by six points. And that's up four points in the last few weeks, which would seem to indicate that the more the public learns about her, the less they like the idea of her serving a lifetime appointment on the Supreme Court.
Add that to the latest poll from USA Today which confirms her low levels of support, showing only 46% of respondents saying that they would "like to see the Senate vote in favor" of her nomination. By contrast, at this point in their own nominations, Sotomayor was at 55%, Alito at 54% and Roberts at 60%.
Most likely, this has to do with the fact that more people are finding out more information about her views (on abortion, for example) and her liberal record.
