Justice Stephen Breyer’s announcement that he would retire from the U.S. Supreme Court marks President Joe Biden’s first opportunity to put his stamp on the court. Biden’s choice, Ketanji Brown Jackson, is a federal appeals court judge and would be the first Black woman ever to serve on the Supreme Court.

As Jackson awaits confirmation hearings, here are some facts about the Supreme Court, based on surveys and other analyses by Pew Research Center.

1. The public’s views of the Supreme Court have turned more negative in recent years.

2. Americans’ views of the high court’s ideology are shifting. The public now perceives the court as more ideologically conservative than in past years.

And, 3. Partisans agree Supreme Court justices should not be influenced by politics, but they differ over which justices do this.
