Poll Reveals How Many Americans Want Kavanaugh Confirmed If He Clears FBI Investigation

Brett Kavanaugh

I don’t know about you, but I was groaning at the news that Republicans acquiesced to Dr. Christine Blasey Ford’s request that Brett Kavanaugh be subject to his seventh FBI investigation, based on her unsubstantiated and poorly-supported claims that he sexually assaulted her in the early 1980’s.

There are so many reasons why this is unnecessary, the least of which is that Kavanaugh has already passed six FBI background checks with flying colors, and the prosecutor hired to question Ford during the Senate Judiary Committee hearings said she would not bring criminal charges against Kavanaugh were the case to be investigated on the state level.

Nonetheless, Republicans seem to be either playing it safe or so confident in Kavanaugh’s innocence that they agreed, and here we are, waiting yet another week to find out whether or not Kavanaugh will be confirmed.

While the accusations made against Kavanaugh surely wouldn’t stand up in a court of law, just how much have they impacted his verdict in the oh-s0-fickle Court of Public Opinion?

Breitbart found out:

If the FBI clears Brett Kavanaugh of sexual misconduct allegations this week, 60 percent of Americans want him confirmed to the Supreme Court.

The Harvard CAPS/Harris poll of 1,330 registered voters also found some other interesting nuggets that are good news for Kavanaugh and his supporters.

The top line numbers show that 40 percent found only Christine Blasey Ford’s Thursday testimony before the Senate Judiciary Committee “credible.” Ford testified that when they were both teenagers, Kavanaugh attempted to assault her at a 1982 house party.

By comparison, only 23 percent said they found only Kavanaugh’s rebuttal testimony “credible.”

However, 27 percent of those polled found both Kavanaugh and Ford “credible,” which means a total of 50 percent found Kavanaugh credible, compared to 67 percent for Ford.

What’s interesting is that the credibility of each respective testimony does not seem to be the tipping point for Americans.

It’s the corroboration of the accounts:

“But the credibility of their testimony does not appear to be the decisive factor,” pollster Mark Penn writes. “Rather, the question comes down to corroboration as the standard for tipping public opinion on whether Kavanaugh should ascend to the high court.”

As of now, in the wake of the testimony, only 37 percent want Kavanaugh confirmed, but only 44 percent say he should not be confirmed. But…

Because “corroboration” is the only standard a wide majority of Americans care about, if this FBI investigation clears him, a whopping 60 percent want Kavanaugh confirmed.

Moreover, once those polled were informed “that the named witnesses deny any knowledge of the allegation, this shifts to 57 percent who favor confirmation.”

To put it simply, once these voters are given the plain facts of the matter, rather than the propaganda-laced media accounts, their support for Kavanaugh jumps.

Amazing, no?

The poll had some other interesting nuggets as well, such as “69 percent agree with Kavanaugh’s pronouncement and Sen. Lindsey Graham’s (R-S.C.) statement that the proceedings have been a national disgrace,” as well as a stunning 57 percent who believe that Sen. Feinstein “should have turned over Ford’s letter months earlier so that this debacle might have been avoided.”

The final conclusion?

“A full 63 percent believe Kavanaugh will eventually be cleared and confirmed.”

The Court of Public opinion isn’t so fickle when it’s presented with all the facts, now is it?

A new poll finds that a majority of Americans think that U.S. corporations have gotten far too political and should get back to just selling stuff. We have witnessed a growing number of corporations going woke since Georgia passed its new election integrity law. These corporations are pushing a hardcore, left-wing line of lies against the Georgia and have made all sorts of false claims about the new law. But a recent poll by the Daily Wire finds that a majority of Americans are already sick and tired of the left-wing posturing of these corporations. The Daily Wire poll found that 64 percent of those surveyed are less likely to support these big-mouthed corporations. The poll also found that most Americans did not support the decision by Major League Baseball to pull its All-Star Game from Atlanta. https://twitter.com/guypbenson/status/1379845164169101313 https://twitter.com/guypbenson/status/1379845165897121792 So, why are these corporations doing all this despite the fact that they are pissing off half of America? Well, there are two reasons. First is cowardice. Instead of standing for American free speech and respecting the rights of the states to run their own lives, these corporations are siding with the anti-American left and are engaging in economic terrorism against us. They are doing this not out of principle, though. They are doing it to prevent people from suing them. After all, leftists sue everybody at the drop of a hat. Conservatives almost never do. That means these corporations are guessing that they can escape legal problems by mollifying the left despite angering the right. The second reason is business. These big corporations imagine that if they follow the left, it will help lead to the destruction of their smaller competitors and they will be the last men standing. They also imagine that they can control government through their big…

Cable News Blasted for Conjuring Controversy in Columbus Police Shooting

This is just dirty.

The sad truth of the matter, when it comes to the mainstream media, is that they are more successful when we are more emotional. It’s a dirty trick of human biology:  The chemicals in our brain that allow us to feel joy, sorrow, humor, and fury are just similar enough to one another that we become addicted to them, one and all.  Feeling something stimulates our self-awareness, and we learn to crave it. So, when you tune into CNN and what they are saying angers you, they’re planting small hooks in your noggin, reeling you in to watch the commercials that pay all of their salaries. If you watch Fox, however, and you find yourself enthusiastically cheering after a host or guest has a mic drop moment, your brain again finds what it’s looking for, and here you are seeing your 14th Progressive commercial of the day. All of the big networks know this and actively participate in this salacious shamanism, and sometimes they cross the line. Liberal outlets HuffPost and AJ+ omitted key details or pushed false narratives in their videos about the fatal police shooting of a Black teenager in Columbus, Ohio on Tuesday. HuffPost failed to note the woman who was shot, Ma’Khia Bryant, pushed another female to the ground and lunged at another with a knife when police arrived at the scene. The misleading HuffPo video was accompanied by the following text, which appeared to paint the police as the villain. “Black girl killed by police,” the text read. “Police in Columbus, OH shot & killed a Black teen around the same time the verdict was read in the Derek Chauvin trial. Body-camera footage showed an officer firing several times at Ma’Khia Bryant before she collapsed to the ground. The video also showed a knife falling next to the…
