Plurality of voters want Kavanaugh confirmed to Supreme Court

Make sure to let us know what you think... we now have comments turned ON below the article!

It was recently announced that the confirmation process for Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh will begin on Sept. 4, with a full Senate vote to either confirm or deny him a seat on the bench within the month thereafter.

That sort of progress is welcome news for the growing plurality of voters who want to see Kavanaugh quickly confirmed to the high court, according to a recent poll.

The Washington Examiner reported that a new Quinnipiac poll revealed that an increasing number of American voters would prefer to see the judge confirmed to the Supreme Court compared to a shrinking number of voters who’d rather see him rejected.

Growing support

That Quinnipiac poll, a survey of 1,175 voters conducted between Aug. 9-13, showed that 44 percent of respondents were in favor of Kavanaugh’s confirmation while 39 percent were opposed and 17 percent had no opinion on the nominee.

The poll showed a slight shift in Kavanaugh’s favor over the past several weeks since the last time the polling outfit asked the same question in July.

That poll in July found only 40 percent supported confirmation of Kavanaugh while 41 percent stood opposed and 18 percent were unsure.

Analysis of the poll results suggested most of the growing support for Kavanaugh was coming from independent voters unaligned with either major party.

Meeting with Democrat senators

These poll results come in the wake of reports that an increasing number of Democrat senators have begun to drop their #Resistance-required obstruction of all things Trump and have agreed to sit down for a meeting with the nominee to the Supreme Court.

The ranking Democrat on the Senate Judiciary Committee, Sen. Diane Feinstein, said she was “trying to work something out” with regard to meeting Kavanaugh, and a similar message emerged from the office of Democrat Hawaii Sen. Mazie Hirono.

So too have Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer and Democrat Missouri Sen. Claire McCaskill already announced scheduled meetings with the nominee, who has already held crucial meetings with Democrat senators Joe Donnelly from Indiana, Heidi Heitkamp of North Dakota and Joe Manchin of West Virginia.

Senate Democrats had initially responded to President Donald Trump’s nomination of Judge Kavanaugh with vows of obstruction and refusals to even consider him, but it appears that position is one not all senators on the left are prepared to hold, particularly in light of the growing support among voters for Kavanaugh to be confirmed.

Kavanaugh will almost assuredly be confirmed eventually and it really just remains to be seen how many Democrats will decide to even play along in the process, much less vote in favor of him, versus how many ignore the will of the voters and refuse to even speak with the nominee.
