Since we've seen a few pro-admin polls posted recently by our far-right members, I feel confident we can discuss other polls as well, without regressing to previous attacks on all things that have to do with polls. I'll post the error margin right at the start so we know what we're looking at.


The Reuters/Ipsos poll surveyed 2,196 adults online across the United States and has a credibility interval, a measure of precision, of 2 percentage points.




36% of Americans are now opposed to the Kavanaugh nomination. It may not seem like a large number, but it now outweighs the support for the nomination at 31%.


The Sept. 11-17 poll found that 36 percent of adults surveyed did not want Kavanaugh in the Supreme Court, up 6 points from a similar poll conducted a month earlier.

Only 31 percent of U.S. adults polled said they were in favor of Kavanaugh’s appointment.

If support for his nomination remains this weak, Trump’s pick would rank among the lowest-supported Supreme Court nominees to later be confirmed, according to historical data from Gallup.


I won't quote any more of the article, but if you read it, it will show that a lot of it has to do with the sexual allegations, and especially with women -- another 7% disapprove since the last poll taken; so whether it's a political ploy or not, it's very effective.

Those who do support the nomination are likely among those who have been sending death threats to the professor's family and forced them to cut off all contact and relocate -- not a good thing, but we've been conditioned that such behavior is ok from both sides in this crazy climate.

Our members are very set in their views, but has anyone started changing their mind? Perhaps someone who was undecided before?

I think we all know the legislators don't do the bidding of the people.

36% opposition means he will be confirmed with 60+ votes.

Makes one wonder what Mitch McConnel knew and why he didn't think Kavanaugh would be able to pass the confirmation process in the first place.

It's not a poll of the Senate.


The Senate will vote down the party line, regardless of what the nation wants.

All due respect sir; They are not meaningless. They're powerful tools to shape public opinion, who doesn't want to be part of the "group" ? These polls are no longer used to gauge opinion, they're used to form opinions.

We're talking about the SCOTUS nomination right in this thread, and the people don't support it.

How can you use that as an example of legislators doing the will of the people?

Yeah they are meaningless especially when the so called victim waited over 30 years.

When the left acted like Jacksnips throughout the confirmation process.

those who oppose him are likely the type to use sexual misconduct allegations for political means.

CORRECTION: %36 of people polled, don't support it....

That's %31 of people polled who do support and %33 of people polled undecided. Stop saying "The People" or any other indication of a whole group of all citizens. It's intellectually dishonest.

I'll inform the White House you decided to implement a statute of limitations on when people can talk about abuse and assault.

Anyone that thinks this country should be ran by public opinion missed the GD point of the Bill of Rights and the rest of that GD piece of paper called the US constitution.

I don’t out much stock in these polls

But if this ones true, I guess the lesson going forward is to set in sexual allegations for months and spring them at the last minute

And have enough main stream media people crow about how important it is

Great precedent being set!
