Kavanaugh worse than Bork?

The early attacks against Judge Kavanaugh's nomination or the U.S. Supreme Court are working.

According to early polling, Judge Kavanaugh is among the LEAST POPULAR Supreme Court nominees in history. Based on results from three polls, his favorable/unfavorable numbers are nearly as bad as Robert Bork's, who was famously "Borked" by Senate Democrats.

And that's just the beginning...

Gallup's polling shows that the partisan split against Kavanaugh is by far THE WORST that Gallup has recorded dating back more than 30 years. Democratic animosity against Kavanaugh is more than DOUBLE the split against Bork.

The net effect of these polling numbers means the Kavanaugh nomination already faces an uphill battle. As the political blog 538 bluntly noted:

"Supreme Court nominees as unpopular as Kavanaugh have never been successfully confirmed."

+ + Action: Sign The CONFIRM CAVANAUGH petition

These polling number confirm that citizen who support the President's nominee cannot afford to sit by silently and let this wave of opposition continue to build. Once we reach the 10,000 threshold, Grassfire will be delivering petitions to the Senate to send an early message that we must confirm the President's nominee. Please take a moment right now to sign the CONFIRM KAVANAUGH petiton by going here:

+ + Lawsuits already filed...

As we noted to you, two Anti-Trump activist groups have already launched a federal lawsuit demanding the release of what they claim is "more than a million Kavanaugh documents that are a matter of public record but are being withheld by the Justice Department and the National Archives."

Clearly, Democrats are going to demand that EVERY last page of this alleged million-document dossier be analyzed before Judge Kavanaugh can even be questioned by the Senate. In fact, swing Senator Murkowski has already signaled that the large number of documents could be "bad news" for the Kavanaugh nomination.

Let's deliver a strong message to these two swing Senators next week. Go here to sign the petition.

    I STAND STRONG WITH THE JUDGE AND HIS FAMILY! I pray for him to have the strength and faith to help save our nation from this circus. Your are a Fantastic Judge Father and Husband. I believe You. I pray every night and morning for God to give you the strength to withstand these lies coming from your past. I AM A SURVIOR! I can see through the holes in theses stories. You are a great Man, Father and Husband and your rightful place is on the US Supreme Court. Your temperament is fine. My husband too would have done anything to protect his family from these false charges and delays done with what looks to have been done with malice at this point. This is harming the Real Rape and Surviors, but no one seems to care about us. I have had to go back to medication and therapy due to my PST coming back. This is not only harming and destroying you and your family but thousands of actual true survivors. I stand with you 150% Please do NOT give up the Fight. You Must win for ALL OF US. If you DO NOT It will make More RAPE and sexual assault victims not seek the help they need. Who will believe us after this Circus. My Senators, Harris and Diane Feinstein have taken it away from us. I fear for our future and my son’s and daughters, in the future. For OUR sake Stand UP Head Held High and we will Stand by You. My church just said they represented 400 Million people that want you to withdraw that could not be farther from the truth. I am one of those 400 million so they do not speak for me or millions of others. God Bless You and your Family and especially your daughters. Your are in my daily prayers

    With their apocalyptic rhetoric, Democrats have manufactured all of the “animosity” amongst their leftist base who have been told how “terrible” the nominee is, but have not done any background research themselves. These “triggered” senators can “demand” anything that they want, but there’s no law that would require copies of the documents to be produced. In fact, any reasonable judge would dismiss the entire suit with prejudice…and maybe even sanction the lawyers who filed it.

    Most of the documents are probably public record anyway,, so the Dems can either “pound sand” or do their own research.

    There are no substantive arguments against the confirmation of Brett Kavanaugh, so all Dems can try to do is delay and obstruct the process.

    “My judicial philosophy is straightforward. A judge must be independent and must interpret the law, not make the law. A judge must interpret statutes as written. And a judge must interpret the Constitution as written, informed by history and tradition and precedent.” – Judge Brett Kavanaugh. (Anyone who tries to argue against this definition just looks petty and ridiculous.)
