The U.S. Supreme Court’s approval rating has dropped to its lowest point since pollsters at Quinnipiac University began surveys on the question in 2004.

Only 37% of registered voters approve of the way the U.S. Supreme Court is handling its job, Quinnipiac University reports in an online post noted by the Hill. That’s a large drop from July 2020, when 52% of registered voters approved of the court’s job.

In the new poll, 34% of Americans think the Supreme Court is too conservative, 34% think the Supreme Court is about right, 19% say the court is too liberal, and 13% have no opinion.

The poll was conducted about a week after the U.S. Supreme Court rejected an emergency request to block the Texas abortion law that bans abortions after about six weeks, according to the Hill.
