The Suffolk University/Enquirer poll surveyed 500 likely voters on landlines and cell phones from October 4 to October 8 - around the time Judge Brett Kavanaugh was confirmed to the U.S. Supreme Court. Bob Corker's Memphis office talked about voting and turning back Republican majorities in Congress with the November 6 midterm general elections. (About 80 cases from over 10,000 appeals are taken up for review in a year). Joe Manchin held out until the last possible minute to announce his support for Kavanaugh, waiting to support the Justice publically until after Susan Collins (R-ME) announced her intention to confirm the Judge, ensuring the majority. That crowd, which dwarfed the hundreds or several thousand anti-Kavanaugh demonstrators, vented anger at times, shouting "Liar, liar" and waving sings including one saying, "Bury Obama Care with Kennedy", a reference to Sen.
These results show significant damage to the Supreme Court's standing in the public's eye. Large sections of Americans feel a growing unease over these issues; the rift these have caused and how they will be resolved will indicate the direction in which the country is headed. And no it's not because I'm some liberal who is simply anxious that Kavanaugh will likely swing the court in a conservative direction. It's a major asset. Trump managed to galvanise not only the male members, but also various sections in his Republican support base as he went around trashing the Democrats and Kavanaugh's critics in one of the most polarised elections for a Supreme Court judge that, significantly, played out under the shadow of a highly charged #MeToo campaign.
Senators, Kavanaugh and his accuser, Christine Blasey Ford, have received threats. Kavanaugh was a judge on the D.C. Circuit for 12 years. All three were in high school then. "That's what this new Democratic Party is about".

But the contentious election and the smear campaign spearheaded by the U.S. president against the possible victim of a predator would continue to be debated in a highly polarised USA and in countries, like India, where the #MeToo campaign is playing out.
Trump has flitted between distancing himself from and defending Kavanaugh. Calling the confirmation process a "disgraceful situation brought by people who are evil", Trump described Kavanaugh as a "great person" and felt it was "very unfair, what happened to him". On a recent swing through Texas, Trump Jr. made light of allegations that Kavanaugh, who told a Senate committee he liked beer, once was a heavy drinker. The judiciary's rules on misconduct do not apply to Supreme Court justices. One was over liberal judge Louis Brandeis (after whom Brandeis University in MA is named), who was nominated by Woodrow Wilson in 1916. Confirmation of the 53-year-old, who could remain in office for decades, represents the fulfilment of a "long-cherished Republican dream... to remake the Supreme Court in a conservative mould". And because of the sheer breadth of their decision making, every person on the court should not only have the advice and consent from the Senate, but they should be able to boast the overwhelming approval of the American people.
Less than a month from voting in which GOP control of Congress is dangling precariously, Republicans are linking comments and actions by Democratic politicians, raucous protesters opposing Brett Kavanaugh's Supreme Court nomination and even a gunman who shot targeted GOP lawmakers.
