62% Say Trump Can't Win With Supreme Court Nominee

As Republicans and Democrats continue to spar over Brett Kavanaugh’s nomination, more voters these days feel it’s impossible for President Trump to locate a Supreme Court nominee both sides of the political aisle will get behind.

A new Rasmussen Reports national telephone and online survey finds that 35% of Likely U.S. Voters believe it’s at least Somewhat Possible for Trump to find a Supreme Court nominee that the majority of both Democrats and Republicans would support, including just 14% who feel it’s Very Possible. Sixty-two percent (62%) don’t think it’s possible, with 30% who say it’s Not at all Possible. (To see survey question wording, click here.)
