The vast majority of people say the best candidate should be chosen for the Supreme Court, regardless of what "box" that person may check in the name of diversity.
That's according to the latest unscientific poll of 533 people at SharylAttkisson.com.
When asked what's the next box that should be checked on the nation's high court, 76% said the best candidate should get the spot.
The next most popular answer was an "illegal immigrant" with 4% of the vote, followed by someone "over age 100" with 3% of the vote. A few people believe a non-English speaking candidate should be the next box checked.
One thing is clear: if we are going to try to somehow represent everyone proportionally, we're gonna need a whole lot more seats.
