Voters split on President Trump’s second Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh.

A new Fox News poll finds that 38 percent of the voters would assure him, 32 percent against it and 30 percent are unsure.


This is similar to the support of President Obama’s second nominee, Elena Kagan, received in the week after the election in may 2010: 39 percent Yes, 29 percent no, and 33 percent are unsure.

In addition, can say, by a 50-42 percent margin, the voters, the Senate should nomination the vote on Kavanaugh’s before the mid-term elections.

The President showed his choice to reject replace judge Anthony Kennedy, in a prime-time announcement 9. July. Voters were asked Kavanaugh, in interviews on July 10-11, includes about two-thirds of the survey sample.

Opinions on the nominees and the process to divide along party lines: 70 percent of Republicans would vote to confirm Kavanaugh, while 58 percent of Democrats would vote against him. And the majority of Republicans (75 percent) want the Senate to act before it is to wait for the elections in November, while the Democrats say, (64 percent).

In 2016, Senate Republicans refused to fill in the vote on Obama’s selection of judge Merrick Garland, an empty Supreme Court seat, to argue that it was a presidential election year and the voters have a say should have, who selects the candidates. Senate Democrats, is still challenged to burn that seat now must argue the trump card of the candidate until the voters have the say in the mid-term elections.

Changes to the Supreme court in the rule, sparking speculation about whether the new court will reverse the 1973 abortion decision Roe v. Wade.

The survey shows three times as many voters want Roe v. Wade (63 percent) want tilt (21 percent).

Even some of the trump of the most important resources would allow the decision stand, of which 59 percent of the white men, 50 percent of Republicans, 49 percent of the trump-voters, 48 percent of conservatives.

Per called-life voters are divided, what should do the court: 39 percent say overturn Roe, while 43 percent say leave it.

Half of the voters are familiar with Roe v. Wade (50 percent), and those who are voters more likely to hold the deer in place (69 percent) than tilt (27 percent).

Views on abortion have been sharply divided for years. Currently describe themselves as pro-more choice than pro-life by a 3-point margin (45-42 percent).

And yet, even if the abortion is to a large part of the conversation, the surrounding Kavanaugh, 74 percent feel it is unacceptable that a U.S. Senator to base his or her vote solely in a nominee position in relation to abortion.

“Although the numbers the defense of Roe v. Wade is a potent attack, Democrats might want to say a few careful here,” the Republican pollster Daron Shaw, who conducts the Fox News poll, with Chris Anderson, his Democratic counterpart.

“There is considerable sentiment against opposing candidate solely on the abortion.”

The survey is also the question of Supreme Court ideology, and the largest number still think that their decisions are “right,” this is going back for the first time in Fox News polling until 2003, that more voters, the court will see as “too conservative” than “liberal.”

Twenty-eight percent feel that the high court is too conservative, up 10 points since February, 2017. And 20 percent say it is too liberal, to 11 points. Thirty-seven percent say the court is right in its decisions.

Justice Neil from gorsuch, Trump nominated for the first Supreme Court, joined the Bank in April 2017.

Outlook-changes on both sides since the beginning of 2017: the number of Republicans feeling of judicial decisions “too liberal”, fell 23 points, while the “right” number increased from 12.

For the Democrats, for the court to consider the share as “too conservative” went up 18 points, while the number saying “went to law” 30.

The Fox News poll is based on landline and cell phone interviews with 1,007 randomly selected voters nationwide and was conducted under the joint direction of Anderson Robbins research (D) and Shaw & Company Research (R) from July 9-11, 2018. The survey has a margin of sampling error of plus or minus three percentage points for all registered voters.
