Harris Poll on Kavanaugh Nomination: 61% of Voters State that If No Corroborating Evidence is Found That They Would Like the Nomination to Proceed
THE DEMOCRATS HAVE OVERPLAYED THEIR HAND AND ARE ON THE WRONG SIDE OF THE PEOPLE …
In a recent Harris poll, 61% of voters believe that if there is no corroborating evidence found to support Dr. Ford’s accusations against Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh, that they would like the nomination to proceed. This is damning to Democrats as they have demanded that they would not be satisfied until there was a FBI investigation into Dr. Ford’s claims. That eventually happened and according to all accounts, witnesses have been questioned, the investigation is supposed to wrap up this week, without any further corroborating evidence. A majority of American people are sick of the “national disgrace” and want it over. With no evidence to support Dr. Ford’s 36 year old allegations, a majority of Americans think it is time to move forward. If the Democrats continue to play games, they will suffer great consequences in the 2018 midterms. Democrats have definitely overplayed their hand and never thought it would get to this point. They thought with their last minute accusations and a complicit propaganda media, Kavanaugh would have withdrew or Trump would have pulled the nomination. Neither happened as Kavanaugh has defended his honor and family and the Democrats are left looking like children going after drinking and ice throwing accusations.
On aggregate, voters wanted corroborating evidence before calling for Kavanaugh’s withdrawal. Sixty-one percent of voters said that if no corroborating evidence is found that that they would like the nomination to proceed. When asked if the allegations against Kavanaugh are mostly true, 51% of voters still through the nomination should proceed (49% say it should be withdrawn).
A majority of voters believe that Kavanaugh’s confirmation process was politicized and mishandled, with 69% calling it a “national disgrace”. They blame both parties for being partisan, with 54% blaming the Republicans and 55% blaming Democrats. Further, 75% of voters believe that Senator Diana Feinstein should have immediately turned over the letter from Christine Ford to the Senate Judiciary committee in July, when she received it.
The Kavanaugh nomination battle also appears to have further polarized the political environment, with 45% of voters saying they are more likely to vote in the midterm elections. Ultimately, 63% of voters believe Kavanaugh will be confirmed.
