A new poll released Wednesday shows that support for Judge Amy Coney Barrett’s Supreme Court confirmation continues to rise steadily.
The Oct. 9-11 Morning Consult/Politico poll found that 48 percent of registered voters said the Senate should vote to confirm Barrett to replace the late Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg, up two percentage points from a poll a week ago.
The percentage of registered voters who said the Senate should vote to deny Barrett’s nomination remained unchanged at 31 percent.
Support for Barrett’s nomination has increased by 11 percentage points since President Donald Trump announced her nomination on Sept. 26 and compares favorably with public sentiment toward Justice Brett Kavanaugh prior to his confirmation hearings, the Morning Consult reported.
At the time, 37 percent of voters said Kavanaugh should be confirmed while 29 percent said the Senate should vote to deny his confirmation.
