Democrats are furious that President Trump is appointing Judge Amy Coney Barrett to the Supreme Court so close to the election.
This is one of the reasons it was the first topic at the first presidential debate.
Unfortunately for Democrats, voters in battleground states are on board with the decision.
The Washington Examiner reports:
Support strong for Senate vote on Amy Coney Barrett in battleground states
Voters in battleground states that are key to the 2020 election outcome back a Senate vote on the Supreme Court nomination of federal Judge Amy Coney Barrett, dismissing Democratic claims that the process is “illegitimate” and that action should wait.
Three separate polls of voters in six states also showed that the death of Associate Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg and President Trump’s choice of Catholic Barrett to replace her has boosted the Supreme Court to a top issue in the election.
For example, in Pennsylvania, which has become a top battleground between Trump and Democrat Joe Biden, a poll for the pro-Trump group America First Policies found that 66% overall said the court would be important in deciding their vote. Among Republicans, it was 72%; with Democrats, 62%; independents, 68%; and among Catholics, 70%.
Brian Walsh, president of America First Policies, told Secrets, “Republicans, independents, and Catholics alike told us the Supreme Court issue was an important issue in their vote for the president. Republican senators should feel emboldened to move quickly and confirm a qualified, conservative justice who will uphold the rule of law.”
The three polls shared with Secrets covered Pennsylvania, North Carolina, Colorado, Arizona, Florida, and Wisconsin.
Senator Elizabeth Warren won’t even meet with her.
I will not be meeting with Donald Trump's Supreme Court nominee. We need to treat this nomination like the illegitimate power grab it is. pic.twitter.com/KwmtQ27miP

Same thing goes for Chuck Schumer.
I am not going to meet with Judge Barrett. Why would I meet with a nominee of such an illegitimate process and one who is determined to get rid of the Affordable Care Act?https://t.co/7v4ES3HNM1

It’s just more sour grapes from these Democrat losers.
Battleground state voters know better.
