Is the Supreme Court more politically ideological than ever before?

Hosted by  • 

Justice Elena Kagan told an audience at Princeton on Friday, “This is a really divided time. And part of the court’s strength, and part of the court’s legitimacy, depends on people not seeing the court in the way that people see the rest of the governing structures in this country now.” She emphasized the importance of the court being “above the fray” of politics. But now that Brett Kavanaugh is seated, how are we supposed to look at the Supreme Court? Is it more partisan than ever before?
