CNN Poll: 51% oppose Kavanaugh's confirmation


WASHINGTON (CNN)The wrenching battle over Brett Kavanaugh's nomination to the high court left the public with sharply negative impressions of the new Supreme Court justice and raised questions about his truthfulness, his temperament to serve and whether his partisan views would influence his work on the bench, according to a CNN poll conducted by SSRS in the final days of the fight over his confirmation.

Overall, 51% in the poll oppose Kavanaugh's confirmation to the Supreme Court, up from 39% who opposed it in early September, after his initial confirmation hearing but before accusations of sexual misconduct emerged. Support for Kavanaugh's confirmation has merely inched up, by contrast, from 38% backing him in early September to 41% now.

Much of that shift has happened among partisans, with both sides pulling further apart on everything Kavanaugh-related. Among Democrats, 63% opposed his nomination in early September, and that has risen to 91% in the new poll. Among Republicans, 74% backed him in September and 89% do so now.........................


..........Beyond overall impressions, the poll finds a majority of Americans express doubts about Kavanaugh's truthfulness and freedom from political influence when considering cases. ...........................

The public's take on Kavanaugh is much more negative than it was in early August, not long after President Donald Trump nominated him to fill the seat being vacated by Anthony Kennedy. Back then, 33% viewed him positively and 29% had a negative take. Now, nearly half have a negative view (47%) while 35% have a positive take.

There is a graph but I am unable to transfer it.






Opposition to Kavanaugh grows



Pre-confirmation: "Would you like to see the Senate vote in favor of Kavanaugh serving on the Supreme Court, or not?" Post-confirmation: "Did you want to see the Senate vote in favor of Kavanaugh serving on the Supreme Court, or not?"

10. Absolutely. 24 hour propaganda machine. And this IS the Main Stream Media.

No. 1 Cable News Channel? Fox News.

No. 1 Radio Show? Rush Limbaugh. Followed by Hannity, Prager, Levine, etc.

No. 1 National Newspaper? Wall Street Journal.

And the icing on the cake? The false equivalency reporting of the corporate media.

13. The money circle must eventually somehow be broken.

This is the process I see we're fighting that seems an endless, impossible uphill battle:

1. We buy products and services, now primarily from/through mega corporations.

2. Profits from these purchases trickle up to a large international cabal of high-wealth individuals and groups who are free to spend the excess profits as they wish. In addition, much of their investments and assets are hedged against losses.

3. They use that money that came from us to buy elections, fund lobbying, fund think tanks and public/social media in hundreds of ways that work only in their interests, not ours.

4. This has created a massive layer of power and control mostly invisible to the public, and it's protected hands-off by many politicians. They even write most of the policy papers that are executed into budgets and laws, as well as procedures for destroying existing public welfare and protections for labor, retirement, health and the environment.

This process is getting worse with time, proven by worsening economic inequality, deteriorating public health care and education (keep 'em scared, dumb and sick). Mega-mergers and backstopping of big business from failure (as in 2008) concentrates more assets and power in fewer hands.

Sorry to be so negative, but I'm not seeing a way to stop and reverse this corrupt and destructive cycle. To me, this is the elephant in the room. Most everything else is political flim-flam and bullshit. Rant over.
