Time is running out in the Presidential Election and all Americans want to know who has the advantage.
Americans may have an answer to that question.
And Donald Trump looked at this poll and breathed a big sigh of relief.
Amy Coney Barrett’s nomination to the Supreme Court got pushed out of the headlines by Donald Trump contracting the coronavirus.
It’s now about to take center stage.
That’s because next week the Senate Judiciary Committee will begin Judge Barrett’s confirmation hearings.
Democrats are trying to throw as much sand in the gears of her confirmation as possible to grind it to a halt until after the election.
Chuck Schumer and company hope by that point, Joe Biden won the election and they can mount a pressure campaign claiming that since Joe Biden won the election, he should get to nominate Ruth Bader Ginsburg’s successor in January when he takes over.
But the Democrats’ campaign to fool the American people into thinking that the Senate confirming Amy Coney Barrett represents an illegitimate power grab fell flat.
A brand-new Morning Consult poll found support for Judge Barrett’s confirmation growing and that by a 15-point margin, Americans favored the Senate confirming Amy Coney Barrett to the Supreme Court.
Morning Consult reported:
Democrats are losing the Supreme Court messaging war, new polling indicates, with support for Judge Amy Coney Barrett’s confirmation trending in the GOP’s direction.
Nearly half (46 percent) of voters in an Oct. 2-4 Morning Consult/Politico poll said the Senate should confirm Barrett — up 9 percentage points since President Donald Trump announced her nomination on Sept. 26 — as more voters say the chamber should consider her elevation to the high court as soon as possible, regardless of who wins next month’s election.
The share of voters who said the Senate should reject her nomination dropped 3 points, to 31 percent, from polling conducted on Sept. 26. Both polls were conducted among roughly 2,000 registered voters each, with 2-point margins of error.
These polling data are a welcome sigh of relief for President Trump and the Republican Party.
Starting Monday, the GOP can stage four days where the messaging for the campaign can focus on the debate over confirming a well-qualified nominee to the Supreme Court.
Republicans are on the right side of public opinion on this fight and it will accrue to their benefit to keep the focus of the campaign on the Supreme Court for as long as possible.
Shifting the conversation away from the coronavirus to the Supreme Court places the focus of the election on a popular fight for the Trump campaign and Senate Republicans running for re-election.
