AN ASSOCIATED PRESS-IPSOS-PUBLIC AFFAIRS POLL FOUND THAT SIX IN 10 AMERICANS THINK SUPREME COURT JUSTICES SHOULD HAVE A MANDATORY RETIREMENT AGE.
WHO DID WE ASK?
The poll is based on telephone interviews with 1,000 adults, including 853 registered voters, from all states except Alaska and Hawaii. The interviews were conducted Nov. 19-21 by Ipsos-Public Affairs. The margin of error for registered voters is plus or minus 3.5 percentage points.
Only one of the nine current justices is younger than 65. Justices have lifetime tenure, but some political experts say sometimes that has meant justices served beyond their most effective years.
SPEAKING FROM EXPERIENCE
People over 65 were among those most likely to favor mandatory retirement for justices, the poll found.
