Poll finds Republicans driven by Kavanaugh

The Democrat plan to use lies about Brett Kavanaugh to fire up their base is backfiring like a Model T Ford.

"62% of Republicans are more likely to vote because of the Kavanaugh controversy, compared to 54% of Democrats and 46% of voters not affiliated with either major political party," Rasmussen reports.

Think it is because of empathy for the accuser?

Think again.

"62% of all voters are angry about the U.S. Senate’s treatment of Kavanaugh, with 42% who are Very Angry. 56% are angry about how the Senate treated Christine Blasey Ford, the woman who accused Kavanaugh of sexual assault, including 35% who are Very Angry," Rasmussen reported.

"64% of Republicans are Very Angry about the Senate’s treatment of Kavanaugh, a view shared by 30% of Democrats and 34% of unaffiliated voters. By comparison, fewer Democrats (48%) are Very Angry about the Senate’s treatment of Ford; 28% of GOP voters and 30% of unaffiliateds agree."

The Kavanaugh hearing leveled the election, wiping out the historic midterm election advantage Democrats held.

"Democrats’ five-point lead on the weekly Rasmussen Reports Generic Congressional Ballot has vanished. The two parties are now tied with less than a month until Election Day. We'll be watching to see if this is the beginning of a post-Kavanaugh trend," Rasmussen reported.

Dianne Feinstein blew up the election. Her re-election effort shows she has a comfortable lead over the socialist Democrat. But the poll was taken before Kavanaugh's confirmation unravelled.

This midterm just got very, very interesting.

    2. Our resident troll knows it, and he revels in what he got when he sold his soul to Soros.

  2. Almost everyone has known what's been going on.

    Justice Kavanaugh was the last straw.

    "I Believe Her" sounds nice. But with the media focusing in on the confirmation hearings, the average American not only saw a Jerry Springer show SC confirmation hearing, but realized it was all an orchestrated set-up.

    During the McCarthy witch-hunt, President Truman - a history buff - said that Americans could be deceived for a bit, but in time we always figure out the truth.

    Next up - exposing the Russia nonsense; brought to us by the same cast of characters.

  3. Don: As a Californian, I am sad to say Feinstein is likely to get re-elected. There are 2 Democrats running (thanks to our state's stupid "Jungle Primary"). Most independent/GOP/conservatives don't want her opponent, the General of the #Resistance Kevin De Leon. The argument they use is that she is likely to die/retire in office, so theoretically the "new" GOP Goveror will appoint someone in her place.

    1. Luck would be, she gets reelected, then investigated, then booted by the Senate.

    2. We'll vote for the extremist to get Feinstein off any committees.

    4. I'm a Californian. We would have voted for the "more moderate" DiFi but not any more.
      I won't vote for the wack-job leftie, some friends and I are agreed to write-in one of the few wonderful Repubs, a fellow named Tom McClintock who is currently a member of the House of Representatives.

      It'll be an uphill battle to turn back the Dem candidate for Gov even though he appears to be on record as favoring free medical care for illegals (shudder). So hoping DiFi wins, is booted and then replaced by a Repub is ... unlikely.

    5. I'm on the same exact wavelength as JimNorCal, but I'm in SoCal. Tom McClintock is my write-in for Senate, and Cox for Governor.

      Maybe I'm a dreamer, but I think this Kavanaugh circus of evil clowns has put even California in play; not holding my breath though.

      This is really the land of Fruits & Nuts, with a large helping of Illegal Aliens, so it'll take a miracle!

  4. "Democrats’ five-point lead on the weekly Rasmussen Reports Generic Congressional Ballot has vanished."

    Please keep in mind the red/blue map of the 2016 election by counties.

    This poll has nothing at all to do with the individual House districts, and does not correlate to the Senate races.

    I followed Larry Schweikart and Richard Baris on Twitter during the 2016 election. They were remarkably accurate in calling not just the Presidential election, but the Congressional ones as well.

    1. Should add that at this point they're projecting the GOP to gain 3-5 Senate seats, and lose some House seats, but still keep the majority.

      They are looking at data as well as talking to people working around the country. The momentum is swinging R. If it continues, I have hope that on Nov 7 there will be 58-60 R Senators, and that the House will actually add 5-10 R's.

    2. Thanks for those recco's. LS seems to be pretty entertaining. People's Pundit seems more thoughtful and serious.
      Enjoyed visting both.

  5. Schumer and Feinstein thought they could run rings around the republicans. PDJT is the new sheriff in town. Hello backfire for Mr. and Mrs. Wile E. Coyote.

  6. Yep, the Dems stepped in a big ol' steaming cow pile, and it is going to stick to them for weeks after he election.

    Trump is not resting either. He just sent 18 names to the Senate for district and circuit court vacancies. With Graham and Grassley royally pissed off, we should see some rapid confirmations.

  7. Time will tell if this site needs a Kavanaugh Schadenfreude list, but I suspect it will. The Blue Wave would be the first candidate if all goes as hoped.
