The far left is fuming after a draft of a report on court-packing shows that doing so would make the court less Democratic. But, the far left already knew that. That’s why they favored it in the first place. They don’t want SCOTUS to be more Democratic, they want it to be more activist. This is about getting what they want that they can’t get from the voters or the constitution.
The report said:

“Court expansion is likely to undermine, rather than enhance, the Supreme Court’s legitimacy and its role in the constitutional system, and there are significant reasons to be skeptical that expansion would serve democratic values. Court expansion today could lead to a continuous cycle of future expansions.”
The Washington Post noted that the push from the far-left to expand the Supreme Court was “always something of a pie-in-the-sky idea”:
…the commission cautioned that increasing the size of the court would be perceived as partisan maneuvering with significant consequences for the court and its future. It would not only be perceived that way; it would be that way, and with massive untold consequences … packing the court would indeed set the court (which has had no more than nine justices for 150 years) on a path of no return.
The report says this would threaten the court’s “long-term legitimacy or otherwise undermine its role in our legal system” by creating a system in which the court is repeatedly expanded to suit political purposes. One estimate cites as many as 29 justices being on the court in the next 50 years. … Not only is the proposal a drastic one, but Democrats have floated it with virtually no ability to actually make it a reality. They began talking about it when they were in the minority in the Senate and didn’t even have the presidency; today they have the barest of majorities in the Senate — 50 seats plus the vice president — and can’t even get all their senators to agree on a major infrastructure package.
In order to pass their extreme agenda, the Democrats would need to kill the filibuster and/or pack the Supreme Court. But, let’s face it, they would never get Kyrsten Sinema or Joe Manchin to go along with either of those initiatives, so it doesn’t matter what the commission decided. The far left is just butthurt that President Trump was able to appoint three judges to the bench.
