Survey Says GOPers Madder, More Likely to Vote Than Dems

Survey Says GOPers Madder, More Likely to Vote Than Dems

Opinion polls show Democratic voters are more enthusiastic about voting in the congressional elections, but Republicans have narrowed the gap in recent weeks and are using the Kavanaugh battle to try to get their voters excited about turning out. They're fuming over what they see as Democrats' defamation of an upstanding, beer-loving Christian, and promise payback come the midterm elections on 6th November.

Likewise, at a campaign rally earlier this week, Republican gubernatorial candidate Ron DeSantis of Florida denounced Democrats for "debasing" the Senate. Progressives fought hard against Kavanaugh's confirmation due to his originalist jurisprudence and because he would replace Justice Anthony Kennedy, often viewed as a "swing" vote in many 5-4 decisions.

The second, filed September 27, claims Kavanaugh violated the judiciary's code of conduct by 'engaging in a public and partisan campaign of lies to cover-up and hide sexual misconduct and crimes he committed in the past'.

McConnell said he's hoping to persuade more Republican women to join the committee but hasn't had much success in the past because "they just haven't been interested".

Sen. Lisa Murkowski (R-Alaska), a fellow moderate who joined Collins past year to help defeat the GOP Senate's Obamacare overhaul bill, voted with Republicans.

"Short-term limited duration plans do not provide protections for enrollees who suffer from pre-existing conditions", Collins said in a statement following the vote.

However, "Nobody's going to beat her", McConnell said.

The letter from Roberts does not mention Kavanaugh by name.

"I haven't criticized Dianne", McConnell said. And second, Donald Trump, isn't he the guy who has everyone chanting "lock her up" 'lock her up?' Oh boy! Feinstein denied her office was the source of the leak.

Kavanaugh had been accused of sexual misconduct in high school and college.

In remarks on the Senate floor on Tuesday, Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer called the Trump administration's rule on short-term health care plans "fundamentally misguided policy". Forty-nine Democratic senators have said they will support the resolution and they would need two additional Republican votes to reach the fifty-one-vote threshold for the measure to pass, though the GOP-controlled House would likely not act on the legislation.

Republicans said Democrats harnessed the accusation in a partisan attempt to sink the nomination.

"I think the most important thing to remember is that Obamacare is not the only way to get pre-existing condition coverage". "This business of presidential harassment may or may not be quite the victor they think it is".

Pointing out that Kavanaugh's confirmation was approved by the smallest margin of any Supreme Court Justice since 1881, Kimmel referenced the widespread protests that ensued.
