“Health care should be a right, not a privilege, for all Americans,” Biden said in a statement. “And one year into my Administration, we are making that right a reality for a record number of people — bringing down costs and increasing access for families across the country.”

Biden Vows Put A Black Woman On The Supreme Court, 3 Out Of 4 Americans Want Him To Look At All Candidates

Undeterred by the dismal results of his commitment to select a black woman for vice president, President Joe Biden doubled down recently vowing to pick a black woman for the U.S. Supreme Court, now that Justice Stephen Breyer is retiring.

But a new poll shows Americans overwhelmingly reject the idea of picking a new justice-based exclusively on race and gender.

ABC News reported on Sunday that its new poll on the topic revealed that Biden’s determination “to select a Black woman to fill a high-court vacancy without reviewing all potential candidates evokes a sharply negative reaction from voters.”

In fact, majorities of voters from different demographic sectors are sour on Biden’s plan, according to ABC News.

Overall, 76 percent of Americans want Biden to consider “all possible nominees,” compared to only 23 percent who want him to “automatically” reach into the diversity bag specifically for a black woman, the network noted.

The survey included 510 respondents. ABC News said the poll, conducted with the polling firm Ipsos, was not large enough to break our black respondents specifically. But among “nonwhite” respondents, only 28 percent supported Biden’s proposal to only consider a black woman.

Even 54 percent of Democrats rejected the idea, as did 95 percent of Republicans.

Biden, however, remains stubbornly committed to the course he outlined as a candidate – even though Vice President Kamala Harris is widely unpopular with Americans. Her current approval rating, according to FiveThirtyEight.com, is 42 percent, which is up eight points over the past two weeks.

Yet Harris’ approval rating has been underwater since mid-August, and even then a majority of the country disliked what she was doing, as her support measured 48 percent. 

At a news conference last week, Biden said, “The person I will nominate will be someone with extraordinary qualifications, character, experience, and integrity. And that person will be the first Black woman ever nominated to the United States Supreme Court.”

“It’s long overdue in my view,” he added. “I made that commitment during the campaign for president, and I will keep that commitment.”
