From US News:

A just completed poll conducted by the Winston Group, a Republican firm, finds vast support for Supreme Court nominee John G. Roberts ducking comment on social issues that might be taken up by the court. The poll question referenced a similar move by Clinton appointee Ruth Bader Ginsburg, who refused to answer out of concern that she didn’t want to prejudge issues that might later come before her. The poll of 1,000 registered voters taken July 23-24 found that 76 percent would find a similar refusal acceptable from Roberts. Twenty percent found it unacceptable.
