Nine years after the U.S. Supreme Court's decision in Bush v. Gore, the ruling appears to have had some lasting impact on how the public views the justices. A new poll from C-SPAN asked voters whether the ruling affected their view of the Court. A substantial minority said that it did, and those who said so saw the ruling as a sham or as an area the justices should have avoided altogether. C-SPAN released the poll results Thursday, as it prepares to air a series of interviews with the justices next month.
