USA Today: Brett Kavanaugh will trigger historic Democratic turnout led by women in November election
For weeks Democrats have been saying the sexual assault allegations against Brett Kavanaugh, the testimony of Christine Blasey Ford, and the ensuing Republican effort to jam through a tainted nominee bode very, very ill for the GOP. Now that Kavanaugh has been confirmed with “yes” votes from all but one Republican senator, Republicans who were already preparing themselves for a political reckoning this Election Day might as well throw in the towel.
…A poll commissioned by Demand Justice the week before Ford’s testimony suggested that Democrats in key battleground states — Florida, Indiana, Missouri, and North Dakota — wanted their Democratic senators to oppose Kavanaugh. A hypothetical yes vote for Kavanaugh would suppress Democratic turnout those senators desperately need.
