Collins Would Not Be Announcing That She Is A No

That would effectively put an end to this, with Murkowski a likely No vote.

I think that the only No will be Murkowski. The other repubs, Collins, Flake & Manchin will vote Yes.

5. While Collins may vote "Yes" for cloture...

I am still hoping that she votes "No" to confirm, once it goes to the Senate floor. Sort of what McCain did on the ACA vote. Unlikely, but my hope is what is keeping me sane for today.

6. More likely, she's going to explain her No vote

It will give her some media exposure to polish her “moderate” credentials.

13. and if she does, Manchin will vote no. We will know if Kav is toast then

 

If she says YES, then Flake decides.

12. We'll See

 

Manchin votes yes, and I am willing to bet he Loses Democratic support and votes next month, and the election becomes much tighter.

I really don't see him solidifying his lead by abandoning his own party.

9. If Collins Says She's A No In 4 Hours...

 

It will give every indication that unless Manchin votes Yes and allows it to go to a tiebreaker, the nomination is over.

I see Zero chance she comes out today as a No, given that Murkowski looks likely to be a No.

I also think they will give Murkowski cover, by all 3 voting Yes, he gets in 51-49, and nobody takes the blame.

10. If this is an announcement to explain a "yes" then she is more needy than we thought.

She seems to love the attention too much. If it is to explain a "no" vote, well that's good. But, Susan Collins always seems to play this game.

14. Again, If She Announces She's A No....

 

This thing is effectively done for. I don't see that happening.

She DOES love the attention too much, which is why she's going out to explain her Yes vote.

If the repubs thought she was a No, they would be freaking out right now, and they are not.

51-49 with Manchin voting AGAINST the 48 Democrats.

15. They need Collins too

They need Collins and Murkowski with Republican Sen. Steve Daines not being present tomorrow.

If they have 1 no they will have to wait until Monday for Daines to get back. The SCOTUS session starts Monday and it would start without Kavanaugh. Not sure what that would mean if the important cases get started Monday, Kavanaugh wouldn't be able to rule on the ones he wasn't there for.
