Polling is catching up with the news… and the Crush Kavanaugh tactic is backfiring BIG-TIME.
The American public sees this for what it truly is — smearing the name of a good man in a naked power grab by the left.
Their ability to push Culture-Defining decisions through the court to ‘fundamentally Transform America’ hangs in the balance. And they know that the court, not the ballot-box, has been their key to victory in the culture war for more than a generation.
If you drew upon the news — and nothing else — to take the nation’s pulse, you’d believe the American public wants Judge Kavanaugh not just voted down, but thrown out of the country entirely as persona non grata.
Then again, the ‘news’ isn’t highlighting scenes like this one.
Wow, this is Glorious!!!!!

Here’s another angle that shows the crowd:
Trump is not only ‘still drawing the crowds’, but they care VERY deeply about this issue.
Democrat overreach is doing the impossible: bridging the divide between Trump and Never-Trump factions of the Republican party.
As satisfying as that chant is to hear, it’s more satisfying to see how this is also showing up in the polls, where such things actually matter.
Sen. Heidi Heitkamp (D-N.D.), who is considered one of the most vulnerable Senate Democrats this election season, trails her GOP challenger by 10 points, according to a new Gray TV poll.
Fifty-one percent of likely voters polled said they are backing Rep. Kevin Cramer (R-N.D.), while 41 percent said they support Heitkamp. Eight percent reported they are undecided.
The poll emerges as Heitkamp and other red-state Democrats struggle to navigate the controversy surrounding Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh’s confirmation. Heitkamp is seeking to keep her seat in a state that went to President Trump by double-digits in 2016.
Sixty percent of North Dakota voters told pollsters they support Kavanaugh, who is facing sexual misconduct allegations from multiple women. Twenty-seven percent said they oppose him.

This poll, as great as it is, was taken BEFORE Kavanaugh had his turn to speak in the hearings. What do you suppose those numbers have done SINCE Kavanagh stood up to defend his good name?
But wait! There’s more!
Now, even ‘safe’ Blue seats are getting jumpy.
In New Jersey, Senator Bob ‘Hung Jury’ Menendez is having a tough time of it. Maybe it has something to do with standing trial for corruption (and worse!) and neither being convicted nor acquitted.
For bonus points, see if you can sniff out any bias in the following CNN story:
The poll of likely voters, released on Monday by Stockton University, found that Menendez, whose federal corruption trial ended in a mistrial last year, holds a two-point advantage over businessman Bob Hugin — 45% to 43% — a split that is within the poll’s margin of error.
The poll is the most recent to show a tight race in New Jersey. A Quinnipiac University poll released in late August found Menendez held a six-point lead.
The closer-than-expected margin in recent polls — combined with Menendez’s struggles to emerge from the ethical cloud following last year’s federal corruption trial and Hugin’s willingness to spend millions of his own money — moves the race in CNN’s ratings from Likely Democratic to Lean Democratic.
If Menendez loses, Democrats would have an even more difficult path towards controlling the Senate starting in 2019. — CNN
…Spend his own money? On a political race? The monster!
…Closer-than-expected (sorry CNN, this one isn’t in the bag). Even more difficult path towards controlling the Senate. (But don’t worry. CNN will do whatever they can to help.)
Why can’t the ‘media’ see how Joe Six-pack in Everytown America is outraged at how a man and his family are being destroyed for political gain?
Because they don’t TALK to Joe Six-pack in Everytown America. Not until they get pissed off and throw the bums out.
Then they spend a couple of years trying to figure out ‘What Happened’, and blame it on Russia.
That’s fine. Those 2016 clips of CNN, Rachel Maddow, and the Young Turks losing their s**t on election night is getting dated. It’ll be nice to have a fresh set of clips to savor.
