Most Americans Oppose Kavanaugh’s Nomination if Ford’s Allegations Are True: Poll
If Christine Blasey Ford’s allegations of sexual assault against Kavanaugh are true, 59 percent of Americans surveyed in a new poll said they believe the Senate Judiciary Committee should not confirm his nomination to the Supreme Court. A poll published Wednesday, and conducted by PBS, NPR, and Marist Poll, also revealed that 29 percent of those surveyed would support Kavanaugh’s nomination regardless of the legitimacy of Ford’s allegations. (Twelve percent remained unsure.) Further, among Republicans asked, 54 percent told the pollsters that they believe Kavanaugh should be confirmed even if the allegation is true. The country was also divided on who they believed, with 42 percent reporting that they were unsure, 32 percent supporting Ford, and 26 percent supporting Kavanaugh.
