Under pressure, Dems hold back Gorsuch support

Right now, getting eight votes Democratic votes is looking like a heavy lift.

“They might not get to 60 [votes], which they’re starting to get anxious about,” said Sen. Sheldon Whitehouse (D-R.I.), a member of the Judiciary Committee.

Another Senate Democratic source said centrists who appeared open to backing Gorsuch after meeting with him personally are now starting to pull back.

President Trump’s sinking public approval rating has begun to undermine his agenda on Capitol Hill — most obviously his plan to repeal and replace ObamaCare — along with his court pick, Democrats say.
