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?

Manchin Shreds AOC, Says ‘She’s More Active On Twitter Than Anything Else’

Published

Despite the fact that the mainstream media has prematurely called the 2020 presidential election in favor of Democratic nominee Joe Biden, there’s a lot of hostilities and division ripping through the party right now. Particularly between Sen. Joe Manchin and Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez. Manchin recently conducted an interview with the NY Times, which was posted up on Monday, in which he took aim at the diehard socialist congresswoman, claiming that she’s far more active on Twitter than she is in Congress. via Newsmax: His words came after a Nov. 11 tweet of his own where he had taken aim at calls to defund the police. He wrote: “Defund the police? Defund the police? Defund, my butt. I’m a proud West Virginia Democrat. We are the party of working men and women. We do not have some crazy socialist agenda, and we do not believe in defunding the police.” Ocasio-Cortez had fired back in a Nov. 12 tweet in which she posted a photo of herself seated behind Manchin at President Donald Trump’s State of the Union speech. In the photo, she appeared to be giving Manchin an icy stare as he applauded. In the Tuesday interview with the Times, Manchin addressed the tweet, saying: “I guess she put the dagger stare on me. I don’t know the young lady — I really don’t. I never met her. I’m understanding she’s not that active with her bills or in committee. She’s more active on Twitter than anything else.” A spokeswoman for AOC, Lauren Hitt, came out to defend the congresswoman by stating that she has submitted more amendments than 90 percent of other freshmen folk in Congress. “The congresswoman has earned a reputation as a tough, prepared member in committee hearings,” Hitt stated. Manchin isn’t exactly wrong here. AOC spends a whole…

Democratic Mayor Of San Jose Busted Allegedly Violating Coronavirus Rules For Thanksgiving

Published

on

The Democratic mayor of the city of San Jose, California is catching tremendous heat over accusations that he ignored COVID-19 restrictions after he urged citizens in the city to “cancel the big gatherings this year and focus on keeping each other safe.” Well, we all know how much the radical left in this country loves hypocrisy, so not shocked by this a bit. This really demonstrates how liberal “elites” view themselves as above the law, while they look at their constituents as peons. via Daily Wire: NBC Bay Area reported Monday that Democrat San Jose Mayor Sam Liccardo appeared to “have broken health protocols in celebrating Thanksgiving with family members outside of his own household.” Reporters from the local affiliate learned that he celebrated Thanksgiving with his elderly parents, which his office later confirmed, with “an unknown number of other guests.” His office did not disclose how many people attended the dinner, how many different households attended, and whether those who attended wore masks. “This is a private event – not public,” Liccardo’s chief of staff, Jim Reed stated. “We are going to redraw the line between what is personal and what is public because that line has become blurred.” On the day before Thanksgiving, Liccardo tweeted, “Cases are spiking, in part because we’re letting our guard (and masks) down with family & friends. Let’s cancel the big gatherings this year and focus on keeping each other safe.” https://twitter.com/sliccardo/status/1331576931125379082 “While few details about Liccardo’s Thanksgiving celebration have been released, it appears the gathering did elude guidelines frequently touted by the Santa Clara County Public Health Department, aimed at slowing the spread of COVID-19,” NBC Bay Area said in their report. “A recent spike in coronavirus cases has prompted tighter restrictions across the Bay Area and the potential for California to exceed…
