The ideas of doing away with the Senate filibuster and packing the Supreme Court might be popular fever dreams on the left, but not with most Americans. The First Liberty Institute conducted a survey and found that voters opposed killing the filibuster by 54-37% and opposed court packing by 68-27%.

But here’s the poll finding that’s most likely to make a difference in Congress: 54% said they would be less likely to vote to reelect a Senator who supported packing the court and killing the filibuster. Some Senators might dream of packing the court, but the last thing they want to have to do is pack their bags.
