69% See Brett Kavanaugh Confirmation As Likely

Most voters think President Donald Trump’s newest nomination for the U.S. Supreme Court, Brett Kavanaugh, will be confirmed. But they’re not as confident as they have been with previous selections.

A new Rasmussen Reports national telephone and online survey finds that 69% of Likely U.S. Voters think it’s at least Somewhat Likely that Kavanaugh will be confirmed as a Supreme Court justice, including 38% who feel it’s Very Likely. Seventeen percent (17%) don’t think it’s likely, with six percent (6%) who believe it’s Not at all Likely. (To see survey question wording, click here.)
