Do Americans Believe Ford or Kavanaugh? New Poll Has the Answer

Published

on

Two polls were taken after the Senate Judiciary Committee hearing last week where we heard testimony from SCOTUS nominee Brett Kavanaugh and his accuser Christine Blasey Ford, revealing that Americans are deeply divided over which one of the two they believe.

The polls reveal that the vast majority of those divisions fall across party lines, showcasing that folks tend to believe what their political party believes.

A YouGov survey conducted September 27-28, found that 41 percent of the 1,000 respondents believe Christine Blasey Ford is telling the truth, while 30 percent believe she is not. Slightly fewer, 35 percent, believe Kavanaugh is telling the truth, while 38 percent believe he is being dishonest.

Those who said they’d watched at least some of the hearings, which was a majority of the country, were more likely to believe both: 52 percent who watched believed Ford, while 36 percent did not; 44 percent believed Kavanaugh and 46 percent did not.

As HuffPost notes, the responses were “deeply divided along partisan lines: Seventy-three percent of Democrats, and just 14 percent of Republicans, believed Blasey was telling the truth; 74 percent of Republicans, and just 11 percent of Democrats, believed Kavanaugh.” YouGov’s Douglas Rivers and Joe Williams wrote Saturday that “hardly anyone believed both were telling the truth,” and the hearing does not appear to have changed the views of most respondents.

A new Reuters/Ipsos poll conducted September 26-30 found similar results: around 4 in 10 Americans believe the accusations against Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh, while around 3 in 10 do not. Over a quarter of Americans aren’t sure what to believe.

“The poll found that 42 percent of adults said they believed the accusations, including about the same number of men and women,” Reuters reports. “Thirty-one percent do not believe them and 27 percent said they ‘don’t know’ what to believe.”

What’s scary about these findings is that it shows just how little the average modern American is investigating important issues for themselves, relying instead on what the members of their political parties are telling them to think.

This is bad, regardless of whether you’re on the left or right. Many issues facing our nation are complex and complicated. They require people to be well versed in these issues and to understand basic universal principles and truths to help navigate them.

Let’s hope people on both sides learn to engage things on their own without the help of political parties to tell them what to think.

Despite promising results for COVID-19 vaccines from pharmaceutical companies Pfizer and Moderna, Levine cited the need to ration them in three phases as a reason for extended preventative measures, according to Penn Live. Levine said, “We anticipate we’re going to be rolling this out through the winter and then into the spring and into the summer. It could take a significant amount of time to immunize everyone in Pennsylvania. I anticipate we’re going to be wearing masks well into 2021, maybe to the end of 2021.”

Not A Joke: AOC, Fauci, & Andrew Cuomo Nominated for ‘Person of the Year’ By TIME

Is this real life?

You’d think this would be an article posted by The Babylon Bee. After all, it literally makes zero sense to have AOC, Fauci, and Cuomo nominated for “person of the year.” It’s almost blasphemous, at this point. All three liberal radicals have done nothing to help their state or country – and that’s the way they like it. From New York Post: Dr. Anthony Fauci and the essential workers who have labored throughout the coronavirus pandemic are tied neck-and-neck as key nominees for Time Magazine’s “Person of the Year” award, a list on which New York’s Gov. Andrew Cuomo and Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez have also landed. The annual poll opened on Wednesday and pulls from reader vote submissions, as individuals are required to vote “yes” or “no” when asked whether or not a specific nominee should be chosen as the overall award winner. […] Other nominees include artists Cardi B, Taylor Swift, Billie Eilish and one-time presidential candidate, rapper Kanye West. Georgia politico Stacey Abrams, U.S. Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and U.S. Attorney General Bill Barr’s names similarly got a nod, as well as American NASCAR driver Bubba Wallace, the NBA’s Lebron James and Kansas City Chiefs quarterback Patrick Mahomes. Is this real life? Would any of these people earn your vote?
