You say Roberts will now be seen differently. One wonders how the liberal wing on the Court will view him now. Does this mean that they may try to persuade him to join them on other cases, making his the swing vote (or one of the two swing votes)? In other words, is his vote now in play?

Perhaps it always has been, and we just didn't know, since we don't see how the Supremes make their decisions internally. It would be fascinating to be a fly on that wall.


Excuse the pedantry, but I'm not sure it counts as Wisdom of Crowds when it's predicting how 9 individuals will decide something. Wisdom of Crowds is for understanding actions or data on a scale far beyond the knowledge of 9 people's decisions surely?
