Right now, there are nine U.S. Supreme Court justices.  Five of those justices were appointed by a President that lost the popular vote.

  1. Chief Justice John Robert – George W. Bush
  2. Justice Samuel Alito Jr. – George W. Bush
  3. Justice Neil Gorsuch – Donald Trump
  4. Justice Brett Kavanaugh – Donald Trump
  5. Justice Amy Coney Barrett – Donald Trump

While both of George W. Bush’s appointments were made in his second term, which he won with the popular vote, that re-election was only made a reality by his initial placement in office through Bush v. Gore.

What we now have is a Supreme Court hand-picked by presidents that the majority of the country rejected and were only made president through the Electorial College.
