A just released poll is frustrating for the Democratic Party going into November. Not only is the generic ballot advantage for Dems now virtually nonexistent, but the latest poll also shows that voters in key states approve of the Senate’s prospective confirmation of Judge Brett Kavanaugh to the Supreme Court. What’s more important is that the poll was conducted in four states where major Senate elections will be held in November, which are critical to the possibility of the Democrats regaining control of the Senate. The gist: if the Democratic candidates run against Kavanaugh in those states, they’ll likely lose and be unable to prevail. Pick your poison, boys.
Here’s more from The Daily Caller…
New public opinion polling shows strong majorities of voters favor the confirmation of Judge Brett Kavanaugh to the U.S. Supreme Court in red states represented by Democratic senators standing for ree-lection in November.
The poll also indicates that opposition to Kavanaugh is negligible in the opening stages of the confirmation process.
The survey polled voters in Alabama, Indiana, North Dakota, and West Virginia, four states President Donald Trump carried comfortably in the 2016 presidential election. Incumbent Democratic senators are running for reelection this November in Indiana, North Dakota, and West Virginia, while Alabama Democratic Sen. Doug Jones faces voters again in 2020.
The polls show voters favor Kavanaugh’s confirmation by a wide margin: 54 percent of Alabama voters, 52 percent of Indiana voters, 60 percent of North Dakota voters, and 55 percent of West Virginia voters answered affirmatively when asked if the judge should be confirmed to the high court. Results were similar among registered independents across all four states.
