Public support for Judge Brett Kavanaugh to fill the vacant Supreme Court seat has dropped to its lowest point since President Donald Trump nominated him in July, driven in large part by a sector of the president’s base: Republican women.

A new Morning Consult/Politico poll, conducted Sept. 20-23, found support for Kavanaugh’s confirmation is underwater among registered voters for the first time since his nomination, with 37 percent opposing the Senate confirming him and 34 percent supporting it.

The new finding marks a 5-percentage-point drop in net support since a poll conducted last week, after Christine Blasey Ford detailed her allegation that Kavanaugh sexually assaulted her while the two were in high school, a charge he has repeatedly denied.

Kavanaugh’s net support among Republicans — the share who oppose his confirmation subtracted from those who support it — dropped 11 points, with 58 percent now in support of his confirmation and 14 percent opposed. The shift was driven by an 18-point fall in support among Republican women, with 49 percent now in favor and 15 percent in opposition.

This poll was taken before Ford was joined by two new accusers,  Deborah Ramirez, and Julie Swetnick had come forward.

I would have to believe that with these new allegations that the support has not diminished even further.

My feeling is that as these numbers continue to decline that Republicans are going to be carefully weighing their support and that Lisa Murkowski and Susan Collins, in particular, might see this as simply too risky for their political future. 

My prediction now is that Kavanaugh will not be confirmed for the job.

    Well I would like to see the poll since victim # 4 and victim # 5 have come forward (this one is up in the air since it maybe recanted) Gosh there seems to a pattern with drinking and assaulting women !

    I would bet the farm that there are others out there but they are not going to come forward because of the SMEAR campaign brought to us by the “family values” republican party.

    I wouldn’t count on Susan Collins at all, maybe Murkowski might grow a spine. Flake is a possible NO. Seems like they could justify a NO vote by saying they didn’t feel the matter has been fully investigated.

    Again, there are other reasons to vote no on MR LIAR, he perjured himself several times during the hearings.

    But Don the Con said yesterday that so many women were upset about the accusations made against Kavanaugh. I suspect that most women, like me, were simply creeped out by his lying and how his dislike for the girls he knew as a teenager has morphed into his rulings from the bench that show he knows nothing about women and cares even less. I feel sorry for his daughters.

    I hope he will not be confirmed, but wouldn’t be a bit surprised if he is. The Republicans really want this guy for some strange reason. They are willing to bulldoze him in, hang any consequences. Makes one wonder why Kavanagh is the “chosen one”.

      The reasons are pretty clear why the GOP is so anxious to have Kavanaugh on the Supreme Court. He is ideologically and politically on the far right, agrees with their determination to end Roe v. Wade, to restrict voting rights and to do whatever moves this country backwards in time to the Dark Ages. Back to when all men were pre-historic beasts with a dash of faux Christianity thrown in.

    I originally thought that all of them, Trump included, should feel shit scared that some truly horrifying egregious crimes will come to light after he is confirmed- because that would be a huge debacle and they’d never get the stink off of them…. but by that time Kavanaugh would have gotten all of them off the hook and kept them all out of jail, so he would have served his purpose, thereby making himself expendable.

    Like Bill Cosby, Brett was pudding his dick where is did not belong. Women just don’t like that at all.

    If the boys in the Washington hood decide to override everything these women are saying about Kavanaugh then we as a country are screwed. The only recourse is for women to the polls in droves and vote them all out. I mean, we are suppose to be a moving forward country and with Trump in the White House we have been taken back to the 1950s. Make that the 1940s, in Hitler’s time. Only we are Germany now. This does not bode well for us Americans who pride ourselves on being independent thinkers when we allow old shriveled up white guys in Washington singlehandedly undermine everything America stood for until Trump got elected. Ain’t Putin having the last laugh? He bought down the American Berlin wall on one fateful night.

    Some group called Mormon Conservative Women or something have contacted all of the Mormon senators and demanded no vote without out an FBI investigation.

    This entire Kangaroo Kourt debacle is losing them votes.

    And that asshole Grassley had to INTERRUPT every single WOMAN during the hearing. WTF is wrong with him? He has to assert his power and authority over them all just to remind them who is in charge? How did he think this was going to go over? Basically a bully victimizing Ford again and putting all of the other women in their places too. Fuck him.
