Kavanaugh's Confirmation Isn't a Win, Even for Republicans

Brett Kavanaugh is the first member of the Supreme Court to hire an all-female class of law clerks
Asked directly, 33 percent of registered voters said the debate over Kavanaugh made them more likely to support Democrats while 27 percent said they are more apt to back Republicans, with a 39 percent plurality saying it makes no difference.
U.S. Supreme Court Chief Justice John Roberts transferred two ethics complaints against newly confirmed Justice Brett Kavanaugh to a lower federal panel, a Democratic advocacy group that opposed the judge's nomination revealed Wednesday.
The poll was taken October 4-7. That shift delights judicial conservative who believe the confirmation will be one of Trump'smost lasting legacies. Among registered voters, women favor Democratic House candidates by 59 percent to 37 percent while men split about evenly, with 48 percent favoring Republican House candidates and 46 percent favoring Democrats. She and other left-wing activists blasted Democrats for allowing McConnel to "jam through" Trump nominees.
"There is a group of voters, older women that have been a pretty good support group for Republicans, and they are starting to turn on Republicans and I think they may be the deciding factor in this election", he said. If a party successfully packs the Court (as FDR tried to do during the New Deal), such an act would likely lead to yet more packing the next time that the other party controlled the White House and Congress.
White women with college degrees split 57 percent to 42 percent for Democratic candidates while white women without a college education lean toward Republicans, 49 percent to 43 percent. The margin of sampling error for both the results overall and the sample registered voters of plus or minus 3.5 percentage points.
The first public word of the complaints came Saturday when D.C. Circuit Judge Karen Henderson acknowledged that complaints about Kavanaugh had been filed.
One note - while the House and Senate will not conduct any legislative business until after the elections, but Congress is not officially in "recess" - so, President Trump will not be able to make any recess appointments.
"Senate Democrats must want to get out of Washington to campaign", said Sen.
Report claims Mourinho will be sacked this weekend
Sources at United have told ESPN FC that they believe Mourinho to be increasingly unhappy and ill-tempered at the club. Last weekend's 3-1 loss at the London Stadium was United's third league defeat of the season.
Our final topic, picked by you, dear listeners, earlier in a poll on our Facebook page, is "Kavanaugh Country: What Has America Become?", focusing on the socio-political aftermath of Kavanaugh's confirmation.
It is that mindset that organizers were fighting to change with an event they specifically aimed to take place in the runup to the midterm election.
The stakes were high, and the party-line fight over Kavanaugh was brutal. Whether Americans agree with his track record or not, these voices say, they should have at least been made aware of it, which majority weren't because of the political circus that took place. It was clear Democrats would lose, and a real victory was never feasible since the measure would have died anyway in the Republican-run House.
Simultaneous marches were to be held in nearby cities in Republican areas of IL - outside of the Democrat-stronghold of Chicago.
'Stop And Frisk' Works, Chicago Should 'Strongly Consider' It
Trump and Rosenstein had been scheduled to meet last week to discuss The New York Times report that flung Rosenstein into limbo. As the plan was taking shape, Rosenstein went to the White House expecting he would be fired but wound up staying in his job.
Both sides' consultants say initial polling shows newfound enthusiasm among conservatives, who until the court fight were far less excited about voting than their liberal, anti-Trump counterparts.
