A poll conducted by Fox News December 13 - 14 shows dwindling support
for Bush SCOTUS nominee Samuel Alito. Overall support for Alito has
dropped from 46% November 8 - 9 to just 35% among registered voters.
This is significantly lower than the 51% support enjoyed by confirmed
Bush nominee John Roberts.
The drop in support is across with board, with just 57% of Republicans
(down from 75%), 28% of Independents (down from 39%), and a mere 17% of
Democrats (down from 26%) reporting that they would vote to confirm
Alito, if given the opportunity.
