What the People Are Saying
Recent polling shows that the courts are a winning issue for Democrats.
In a poll conducted among likely 2020 voters in 10 battleground states,voters who said the president’s ability to appoint Supreme Court justices was a reason to support a Democrat for president outnumbered those who said it was a reason to support Trump (43% versus 35%).
Democrats and liberals were more likely than other voters to say it was “very important” to them to consider the kinds of judges a Senate candidate would confirm, when making their decisions whom to support in Senate races.
