Democrats and the media have spent the week going after Judge Amy Coney Barrett during her confirmation hearings for the Supreme Court.
None of their attacks are working though. A new survey finds that Coney Barrett’s approval is actually going up, even among Democrats.
It’s also looking like Coney Barrett is going to be confirmed before the election.
The Washington Free Beacon reports:
Public Support for Barrett’s Confirmation Shoots Up, New Survey Shows
New survey data show that public support for Judge Amy Coney Barrett’s confirmation to the Supreme Court is steadily rising.
A Morning Consult/Politico poll released Wednesday found that 48 percent of respondents favor Barrett’s confirmation, with just 31 percent opposed. That’s up 11 points from the Sept. 26 announcement of her nomination, when Morning Consult pegged support for her confirmation at 37 percent.
Support for Barrett has climbed among independents and even Democrats. Independents favor her confirmation 38-31, up 10 points from Sept. 26. A quarter of Democratic voters believe she should be confirmed, up from 14 percent in September.
Opposition to her nomination is strongest among Democratic women, at 59 percent. Women overall favor her confirmation 40-35.
The figures suggest that Democratic process arguments related to the election, and their dire warnings about the fate of the Affordable Care Act, have failed to move public opinion. Respondents favor her confirmation as soon as possible 44-36, regardless of who wins the election. Public opinion on that point was evenly divided immediately after the late Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg’s death, according to prior Morning Consult data.
Senate Democrats have made quite a spectacle of themselves this week. They’re going to lose this fight.
Support for Judge Amy Coney Barrett's confirmation continues to rise among all voters, including Democrats, a Morning Consult survey released on Wednesday confirmed. https://t.co/HABh4Y5UJn

Barrett will likely be confirmed before the election. Amazing.
