Voters Still Favor Kavanaugh Vote in Senate - And Want It Soon

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell insists the U.S. Senate will vote on Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh, and most voters still support that decision. There’s also only slightly less urgency in their minds about getting the job done.

The latest Rasmussen Reports national telephone and online survey finds that 56% of Likely U.S. Voters still believe that every person the president nominates to serve as a judge or in a government position should receive an up or down vote on the floor of the Senate. Only 20% disagree, while slightly more (23%) are undecided. (To see survey question wording, click here.)
