According to a national online and phone survey released last week by Rasmussen Reports, just 36 percent of likely U.S. voters have a favorable view of Attorney General Merrick Garland.
That includes 18 percent who view him very favorably. Forty-four percent have an unfavorable view of Garland, which is a two-point increase from August of 2022. Thirty-two percent said they hold a very unfavorable view of Garland.
Thirty percent of Democrats view Garland very favorably while 52 percent of Republicans have a very unfavorable view of Garland. Just 19 percent of Republicans hold at least a somewhat favorable view of Garland.
Forty-four percent of unaffiliated voters said Garland is doing a worse job as Attorney General than most of his predecessors. Sixty-three percent of Republicans agree, as do 24 percent of Democrats.
