A new Rasmussen survey revealed Wednesday that 62 percent of Democratic voters “believe GOP senators were disrespectful” to Judge Ketanji Brown Jackson during hearings before the Senate Judiciary Committee on her confirmation to the U.S. Supreme Court.
While the new poll found 51 percent of all likely voters “believe Republican senators questioned Judge Jackson the way most recent nominees to the Supreme Court have been questioned,” it appears Democrats were having none of it.
Turn back the clock to the summer of 2018, when Democrats—including then-Sen. Kamala Harris—were asking then-court nominee Brett Kavanaugh about beer drinking, and allegations of sexual impropriety.
At the time, then-Sen. Orrin Hatch (R-Utah) penned a blistering Op-Ed for USA Today in which he wrote, “In their zeal to portray Judge Kavanaugh as the embodiment of our greatest fears, Democrats have gone borking mad. As if announcing a professional wrestling match, Sen. Richard Blumenthal described Judge Kavanaugh as nothing less than ‘your worst nightmare.’ Sen. Kamala Harris went a step further when she warned that Kavanaugh’s confirmation would result in the ‘destruction of the Constitution of the United States.’ But Sen. Jeff Merkley one-upped them all when he stated, with no hint of irony, that Judge Kavanaugh ‘is a nominee who wants to pave the path to tyranny.’”
Judge Jackson remained poised during questioning, but she seemed to have lost points when, responding to a question from Sen. Marsha Blackburn (R-Tenn.), the nominee could not define what a woman is. Rasmussen recalled her remark, “I’m not a biologist,” which has since become a meme on social media for ridiculous jokes.
Rasmussen’s survey revealed “60% of voters are concerned about the way Jackson answered that question, including 43% who are Very Concerned.” However, 37 percent aren’t concerned.
The survey of 1,000 U.S. Likely Voters was conducted on March 27-28, 2022 by Rasmussen Reports. The margin of sampling error is +/- 3 percentage points with a 95% level of confidence, Rasmussen said.
Like it or not, the nomination of any person to the Supreme Court is an issue that concerns all citizens, but the debate appears to be pushed aside while headline continue to focus on actor Will Smith’s slap of comedian Chris Rock during the Academy Awards program.
