Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
According to the Marquette Law School poll couple of weeks ago, about half of Republican and Democrats though next Supreme Court appointment as important and only third of independents.

And this is with the high-pitched screaming on the issues in MSM. If the media was more reflecting on the interests of the population and not creating issues, I'd guess even bigger majority of USians would reply "who cares"...

It's almost like the general population instinctively knows that the kind of retroactive constitutionality checks used in common law countries are slow, cumbersome and leave much leeway for legislators and courts to misbehave. Or that the SCOTUS hasn't been that good in upholding the constitution in the last decades, anyway.
