Democrat Support For Amy Coney Barrett Rises By DOUBLE DIGITS As Election Looms

( Despite efforts by Congressional Democrats to stop the confirmation of Judge Amy Coney Barrett to the Supreme Court, support from Democrat voters for confirming the Catholic judge has increased by double digits.

A new poll from Morning Consult, released on Wednesday, shows that more Democrat voters now support the confirmation of the Supreme Court Justice – rising by double digits over a period of days.

In a press release, Morning Consult described how the Democrats are “Losing the Supreme Court messaging war” with the confirmation of Coney Barrett “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.”

It is a crushing blow to the Democrats who have attempted to argue that the nomination should not have taken place because people have already begun early voting. President Donald Trump nominated Judge Amy Coney Barrett as is his duty, outlined in the United States Constitution.

The press release also described how the share of voters that believes the Senate should reject Barrett’s nomination also dropped by three points, down to 21 percent. Both polls performed by Morning Consult were conducted with around 2,000 registered voters and there is a two-point margin of error.

“Seventy-seven percent of GOP voters back Barrett’s confirmation, up 6 points from last month,” the statement continued, “Among independents, the share who said she should be confirmed increased 8 points, to 36 percent, while the share of Democratic voters who said she should be confirmed increased 10 points, to 24 percent.”

Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Lindsay Graham recently confirmed that the confirmation hearings for Judge Coney Barrett would go ahead as planned, despite Democrats calling for them to be delayed over the president’s recent contraction of the Chinese coronavirus.

Graham said that, according to the standing rules of the senate, committees “may convene regardless of whether or not the Senate is in session.” He confirmed that the Senate will “Proceed with the consideration of the nomination of Judge Amy Coney Barrett to be an associate justice on the Supreme Court of the United States on Oct. 12, 2020.”
