We Still Don't Know What Brett Kavanaugh's Confirmation Means For The Midterms

Women protest in front of Trump Tower in New York on Oct. 4 against Supreme Court nominee Brett M. Kavanaugh

With less than a month to go before Election Day, Republicans are closing the gap with Democrats - especially after the Kavanaugh debacle. Democrats and some Republicans have adamantly refused to pay for a physical wall, which they say would be costly and ineffective.

Far more Democrats say they are focused on health care and Social Security than say the Kavanaugh confirmation will be very important, and for almost three-quarters of partisans, the party of the Congressional candidate matters a lot. "Only one side's leaders are now openly calling for more of it".

At the time, Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell said the American people should have a say in the direction of the court, meaning no judge should be confirmed until a new president is elected. They haven't seen enough.

The Quinnipiac poll follows a Gallup survey that showed Republicans' enthusiasm five weeks before the midterm elections was rising fast, putting them neck and neck with Democrats, who held a big margin just weeks ago.

The same question faces the #MeToo movement against sexual misconduct after the White House successfully argued that the Kavanaugh allegations should not be conflated with the rest of the movement. In a Quinnipiac University National Poll released October 2, 49 percent of voters said they support the Democratic candidate in their local race for the House of Representatives while 42 percent back the Republican candidate. The mainstream media, an arm of the Democratic Party, then trotted out new accusations against the 26-year veteran judge with a squeaky-clean record, including claims from a porn-star lawyer's client who said future-Justice Kavanaugh led a gang-rape club while in high school.

"It's turned our base on fire", McConnell said about the battle, which he's called a political gift.

The confirmation process of Justice Brett M. Kavanaugh revealed the depths of their depravity. Sen. She voted Wednesday on a health care bill that was a top priority for Democrats but wasn't around for votes later Wednesday or Thursday on Trump nominees.

"Because I pledged that in 2016", Grassley said.

Crowds at Trump campaign rallies have long chanted that about 2016 Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton. "You know they're up 40-50 percent in 401ks".

Tymkovich, the judge who is now in charge of investigating the complaints, was appointed to the bench by President George W. Bush and was on President Donald Trump's list of possible Supreme Court nominess, though Trump ultimately chose Kavanaugh.

Senators, looking toward November's elections after a bruising Supreme Court fight, reached an agreement Thursday to leave the Capitol for the campaign trail. Republicans have said some received death threats and were stalked at their homes. In Missouri, for instance, Republican Senate candidate, Attorney General Josh Hawley, who is among the group of attorneys general suing to invalidate the Affordable Care Act, ran an advertisement saying he supported forcing insurance companies to include coverage for preexisting conditions.

"I hope that our supporters understand that, but we need to be focusing on is the outcome of the 2018 elections", she said adding that if Democrats control the Senate next year they will be able to block Trump's nominees they oppose.
