A majority now wants Judge Kavanaugh to be confirmed to the Supreme Court, if the FBI dismisses the allegations against him. A new poll from Harvard CAPS/Harris of over 1.300 registered voters provided the finding.

Poll: 60% Want Kavanaugh Confirmed if FBI Dismisses Allegations
If the FBI clears Brett Kavanaugh of sexual misconduct allegations this week, 60 percent of Americans want him confirmed to the Supreme Court.
The Harvard CAPS/Harris poll of 1,330 registered voters also found some other interesting nuggets that are good news for Kavanaugh and his supporters.
The top line numbers show that 40 percent found only Christine Blasey Ford’s Thursday testimony before the Senate Judiciary Committee “credible.” Ford testified that when they were both teenagers, Kavanaugh attempted to assault her at a 1982 house party…
“But the credibility of their testimony does not appear to be the decisive factor,” pollster Mark Penn writes. “Rather, the question comes down to corroboration as the standard for tipping public opinion on whether Kavanaugh should ascend to the high court.”
As of now, in the wake of the testimony, only 37 percent want Kavanaugh confirmed, but only 44 percent say he should not be confirmed. But…
Because “corroboration” is the only standard a wide majority of Americans care about, if this FBI investigation clears him, a whopping 60 percent want Kavanaugh confirmed.
This is a major failure on the part of Democrats and their media allies, who have saturated the news with horrific charges against Kavanaugh. Republicans should confirm him.
