Should Obama ignore the federal courts?


Rasmussen via Daily PunditThe latest Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey finds that 26% of Likely U.S. Voters think the president should have the right to ignore federal court rulings if they are standing in the way of actions he feels are important for the country. Sixty percent (60%) disagree and say the president should not have the right to ignore the courts. Fifteen percent (15%) are undecided. (To see survey question wording, click here.)

Does the survey question wording differentiate "Likely U.S. voters" from "illegal aliens with no right to vote who plan to vote anyway"?

Thought not.

Rasmussen via Daily PunditBut perhaps more unsettling to supporters of constitutional checks and balances is the finding that 43% of Democrats believe the president should have the right to ignore the courts. Only 35% of voters in President Obama’s party disagree, compared to 81% of Republicans and 67% of voters not affiliated with either major party.

For my Democrat readers (yes, all one or two of them): do you support this?
