Per reporting from Breitbart, “a vast majority of registered voters favor the “Keep Nine” amendment, establishing the number of Supreme Court justices at nine and thereby preventing the president and Congress from ever “packing” the highest court in the land.
The “Keep Nine” amendment simply states that the Supreme Court of the United States “shall be composed of nine Justices.”
A survey, conducted by McLaughlin and Associates from Sept 23 – 27 among 1,000 registered, likely voters, found that 62 percent favor the amendment, as opposed to the 18 percent who do not.
Last week, two congressmen, Denver Riggleman (R-VA) and Collin C. Peterson (D-MN) introduced a “Keep Nine” measure which would effectively set the number of Supreme Court justices at nine.
“The independence and non-partisan nature of the Supreme Court of the United States is a core aspect of American government,” Riggleman said in a statement.
“I am proud to lead this bipartisan legislation that keeps the number of Supreme Court Justices at nine and ensures partisan desires to ‘pack the court’ won’t result in a Court that has been undermined by politics,” he continued.
