Hey Dumb mass -

You came out of hiding.

No one was more wrong, more often, more obnoxiously, than you in 2016.

I , on the other hand, haven't been wrong about a single material fact since candidate Trump came down the escalator.

Which polls BJ?  You referred to some polls in your earlier post - can you link to them?

Here is just a recap -

A recent NPR/PBS NewsHour/Marist poll now suggests that Republican voter enthusiasm has surpassed that of Democrats.

As late as July, polls showed Democrat voter enthusiasm up 10 points over that of Republicans, but it now appears that the Senate Democrats' grotesque attack on Kavanaugh has inadvertently lit a fire under Republicans.

Lee Miringoff, director of the Marist Institute for Public Opinion, explained, "The result of hearings, at least in the short run, is the Republican base was awakened."

Furthermore, a Harvard Center for American Political Studies poll was just released, and according to that survey, 60% of Americans support Kavanaugh's confirmation if the FBI finds no other evidence to corroborate Ford's accusations.

Additionally, 69% believe this confirmation process was a "national disgrace," and 75% of respondents believe that Feinstein should have provided Ford's letter to the Senate Judiciary Committee when she received it in July, rather than waiting until Kavanaugh's hearing had concluded.

With the midterm elections just over a month away, things have really tightened up, and all the mainstream media's hype about a coming "blue wave" has suddenly receded.

Long time before the midterms. This far out, the Russians and Comey hadn't interfered in the 2016 elections.


That one is so happy that an immoral, puppet is likely soon to sit on the SC- I'd warn, be very careful what you wish for.

Poll: More Believe Ford Than Kavanaugh, A Cultural Shift From 1991

Kavanaugh accuser Christine Blasey Ford is sworn in before testifying Thursday at a confirmation hearing for the Supreme Court nominee.

After a day of wrenching testimony from Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh and Christine Blasey Ford who has accused him of sexual assault in high school more Americans say they believe Ford's account over Kavanaugh's denials, according to an NPR/PBS NewsHour/Marist poll released Wednesday.

In choosing who is telling the truth, 45 percent said Ford is, up from 32 percent ahead of her Sept. 27 testimony. A third (33 percent) said Kavanaugh is the one telling the truth, up slightly from 26 percent before he testified but not as much of a rise as for Ford.

The daylong hearing appears to have been influential in helping people decide who was telling the truth. Before the hearing, 42 percent said they were unsure whom to believe. Now, just 22 percent are unsure.

Poll: Amid Kavanaugh Confirmation Battle, Democratic Enthusiasm Edge Evaporates

The results represent a shift from 1991, when more people said they believed then-Supreme Court nominee Clarence Thomas over Anita Hill. Hill accused Thomas of sexual harassment in the workplace. A 1991 CBS/New York Times poll, also conducted days after their dramatic, televised Capitol Hill testimonies, found that 58 percent believed Thomas more, as opposed to just 24 percent who said Hill.

"If it remains 'he said, she said,' the benefit of the doubt is very different than 1991, and it goes to Ford not Kavanaugh," said Lee Miringoff, director of the Marist Institute for Public Opinion, which conducted the poll. "It shows the reaction to the testimony and does show an underlying change in attitude than 27 years ago."

Yet Republicans are pushing forward with Kavanaugh's nomination, seeing enthusiasm among the GOP base rising dramatically in the midst of the Kavanaugh controversy. Even President Trump, after days of calling Ford "credible," changed his tune and mocked Ford at her during a rally in Mississippi on Tuesday night, a day after the poll was conducted.

"Thirty-six years ago, this happened," Trump said. " 'I had one beer.' Right? 'I had one beer.' How did you get home? 'I don't remember.' How'd you get there? 'I don't remember.' Where is the place? 'I don't remember.' How many years ago was it? 'I don't know. I don't know. I don't know. I don't know.' What neighborhood was it in? 'I don't know.' Where's the house? 'I don't know.' Upstairs, downstairs, where was it? 'I don't know. But I had one beer. That's the only thing I remember.' "

The crowd applauded wildly, as the president's ridicule grew. Ford, in her testimony, offered more detail than the president noted.

Tensions Over Kavanaugh's Nomination Rise As Key Senators Criticize Trump Comments

With just over a month to go until the consequential midterm elections across the country that will determine who controls Congress, Republicans are gambling that several of the key groups leaning toward Democrats young people, Latinos and independents won't show up in big numbers at the polls.

But those who said November's elections are "very important" oppose Kavanaugh's nomination 51 percent to 44 percent.

Americans are hotly divided by party on whom to believe. Yes, there is a big gender gap. Men are split on whom they believe: 39 percent say Kavanaugh, 37 percent say Ford. Women, on the other hand, are far more on Ford's side: 52 percent believe her, 27 percent say Kavanaugh.

But that gap disappears when looking at it by party 80 percent of Democratic men believe Ford as do 74 percent of Democratic women. Among Republicans, 77 percent of men believe Kavanaugh, as do 73 percent of women.

Where there is a difference by gender is among independents. Independent men are split 39 percent to 35 percent, siding slightly more with Ford, while a solid majority of women believe Ford, 56 percent to 24 percent.

"Partisanship is really the driving force," Miringoff noted, pointing out that partisanship is the "most dominant" force "in dividing public opinion."

That would make sense considering how partisan a performance Kavanaugh turned in during his testimony, deriding Democrats' conduct as an "embarrassment" and dismissing the movement against him as "revenge on behalf of the Clintons."

That was enough to rally Republicans and Trump to his side, but not the public overall.

Nearly half of Americans say they oppose Kavanaugh's nomination 48 percent compared with 41 percent who support it. Before his testimony, 43 percent opposed his nomination and 38 percent supported it.

Overall, by a 40 percent to 31 percent margin, more voters say they are likely to vote for a candidate in these midterm elections who opposes Kavanaugh. About a quarter of voters said it makes no difference to their vote.

The FBI is conducting a supplemental investigation into the allegations against Kavanaugh that is expected to be wrapped up by the end of the week. If there is still a doubt about whether the allegations against Kavanaugh are true after the investigation is complete, Americans say he should not be confirmed to the Supreme Court by a 52 percent to 40 percent margin.

That is also a big difference from 1991. Back then, the same CBS/New York Times poll found that 56 percent thought Thomas should be confirmed, even if doubt still existed.

But one group does still think he should be confirmed if doubt exists: 77 percent of Republicans say so, which helps explain the bitter battle being waged to confirm Kavanaugh.

Kavanaugh was willing to be Trump's puppet. He admitted that he, as a professional, was willing to look the other way with regards to Trump's behaviors that form the basis of the Mueller investigation. Trump coached Kavanaugh as to how to act like a lunatic during the  2nd judicial hearing- The FBI investigation was nothing but a hoax to placate the citizens of our country. So Trump got what he wanted, a puppet. America lost on Saturday. A tainted, most likely problem drinker was named to the highest court in the land. He's every bit the fraud that Trump is. There is zero balance in our 3 branch federal government. Vote in November to bring some stability to the foundation.


Oh and vote the lifers out- all those who have been lurking in Congress for 40 years, and who are on the ballot need to go. I know I will be voting for fresh members next month.


What we nourish is what we become. Thanks to Trump, division, hate, apathy is at an all time high.


Thank God he'll be gone before we can blink an eye and we can undo the negatives.

You clearly do not understand how The Constitution works - It actually came with an instruction manual.
The writers knew that with time, changes would be needed - those changes come about through Amendments.
No where in the instruction manual does it say that Justices should simply interject their opinions on how to change it.

The rest of your words are just gibberish.

Kavanaugh didn't deserve ANY votes until a proper investigation was conducted.  That would mean interviewing everyone whom the complaining women described as having knowledge of or witnessing Kavanaugh's behavior.  The FBI was kept from doing a real investigation and they did not even interview Ford who made the initial complaint.  That is pathetic.  It was nothing more than a rubber stamp limited "investigation" because the Republicans in the Senate knew a real investigation would quite likely turn up some actual proof that Kavanaugh was guilty of the accusations made.
