Toobin: 'I'd be very surprised if SCOTUS upholds health care law in full'

The Supreme Court is expected to rule on the constitutionality of the health care law championed by President Obama this Thursday.

Referring to the day of the ruling as the "nerd Super Bowl," CNN’s senior legal analyst Jeffrey Toobin tells  Soledad O’Brien that he will be surprised if the court upholds the law in full on Starting Point this morning.

In terms of how the ruling falls in relation to the timing of the election, Toobin says, “[The Supreme Court] is very much aware of the politics surrounding everything they do.”

However, Toobin notes that he does not think the Supreme Court will “sit around and talk about what the political fallout of their decisions will be.”
