Poll: Voters split 45/46 on confirming Kavanaugh to Supreme Court

Republican Senator from South Dakota John Thune claims Democrats will use any excuse to oppose President Trump’s pick to replace Justice Anthony Kennedy on the Supreme Court.

Voters are increasingly divided over the nomination of Brett Kavanaugh to the Supreme Court since President Trump announced him as his choice to replace retiring Justice Anthony Kennedy.

Forty-five percent would confirm Kavanaugh, while 46 percent oppose him, according to the latest Fox News poll.

Last month, voters supported him by a 38-32 percent margin. Many voters at that time, 30 percent, had no opinion on Kavanaugh’s nomination. That makes sense, given interviews for the July poll were conducted July 10-11, which was soon after the president’s July 9 prime-time announcement of his selection.
