Gallup: Majority of Public Wants Bush to be Flexible on Supreme Court Nominee

According to the poll, 51% want the president to be ready with an alternate choice if Democrats object to the person he most favors, with 46% wanting him to stick to his guns.

It also found that 53% urge Democrats to “work to defeat” a nominee who they find unacceptable, with 40% asking them to “vote to confirm the president's nominees.

Yet, asked about the general direction of the court, 41% says they would like the next nominee to make the court more conservative, with 30% seeking a more liberal direction and 24% wanting to keep the court as it is.

The question that begs asked....."should the Democrats be "flexible" with Bush SCOTUS nominees"?
