Do you believe 5 -4 Supreme Court decisions are more likely based on political views of the Justices than on legal

    

A 2012 CBS/NYT poll asked: In general, do you think the current US Supreme Court Justices decide their cases based on legal analysis without regard to their own personal or political views, or do you think they sometimes let their own personal or political views influence their decisions?

Do you believe post 1999 US Supreme Court 5 to 4 decisions are more likely based on political views of the Justices than on legal analysis?

5 to 4 SCOTUS decisions, since 1999, are not more likely based on political views

These SCOTUS 5-4 decisions are more likely based on political views, I am not concerned
I do not have an opinion regarding 5 to 4 by SCOTUS decisions since 1999
