How Many Supreme Court Justices Do You Know?

Nine people helped determine the fate of ObamaCare this year—and most Americans can't name a single one. Two-thirds of us are unable to name a Supreme Court justice, according to legal website's poll of 1,000 people. Chief Justice John Roberts was the most familiar name, known by just 20% of respondents. Only 3% could name Stephen Breyer, making him the least-known. The justices and their recognition levels, according to the Wall Street Journal:
  • John Roberts: 20%
  • Antonin Scalia: 16%
  • Clarence Thomas: 16%
  • Ruth Bader Ginsburg: 13%
  • Sonia Sotomayor: 13%
  • Anthony Kennedy: 10%
  • Samuel Alito: 5%
  • Elena Kagan: 4%
What do you think?

  1. All of them--and the guy in the middle is the one to watch most times. Of course, Roberts fooled everyone in the healthcare decision.
