The Senate Judiciary Committee will begin holding hearings for the confirmation of Judge Brett Kavanaugh to the U.S. Supreme Court on Monday. A new Rasmussen Reports national telephone and online survey finds more than two-thirds of voters see his confirmation as likely.
While 69% think it’s at least somewhat likely that Judge Kavanaugh will be confirmed, that includes 38% who think it’s very likely. Another 31% think it’s somewhat likely.
Democrats have demanded, and received, more than 400,000 documents to vet the nominee. That’s more than any other Court nominee before him, and five times more than the previous 3 combined. But 21 Democrats, including 5 on the Senate Judiciary Committee, already announced their opposition before hearings even began.
The survey of 1,000 U.S. Likely Voters was conducted August 30 and September 2, 2018.
