(ThePatriotSource.com)- A new poll proves that the Democrats are out of step with public opinion, with a majority of Americans supporting Judge Amy Coney Barrett’s confirmation to the United States Supreme Court. The Gallup survey, released on Tuesday, shows that more than half of Americans support the president and the Republicans in their efforts to replace the late Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg before the election.
Tuesday’s poll showed 51% of Americans supporting the appointment of Judge Barrett to the Supreme Court. It also found that support for her nomination was higher than the previous two appointments by President Donald Trump, Justices Brett Kavanaugh and Neil Gorsuch. The 51% number is higher than the support for either of those two appointments at any point before they were confirmed.
Senate Democrats have failed in their attempts to stop Judge Amy Coney Barrett from going through the Senate hearings process, and are likely to fail in attempting to stop the Senate from confirming her to the Supreme Court. The Senate Judiciary Committee will meet on October 22 at 1 p.m. ET to consider Barrett’s nomination, before going to a vote on the floor on Friday, October 23.
Early on in the nomination, Democratic House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and other high-profile left-wing legislators suggested that they would do everything in their power to stop the appointment of Judge Amy Coney Barrett. Speaker Pelosi even suggested she may move forward with fresh impeachment proceedings against President Trump.
Just a week ago, some 48% of Americans said that Judge Barrett should be confirmed to the Supreme Court, showing an upward trajectory in support for the originalist judge.
Opposition to the appointment of Judge Barrett remains high at 46%, and shos just how divided the country has become along ideological lines.
According to the Hill, Gallup cited several possible explanations for the result, “including the fact that the nomination process is occurring amidst a presidential election in which millions of voters have already cast their votes.”
A New York Times poll even found that 44% of Americans believe that Barrett should be confirmed, and that 47% believe a vote on her confirmation should take place before Election Day, even as Congressional Democrats attempt to stop that from happening.
Just how out of step with public opinion can the Democrats be?
