According to new polling data, the Democrats' scorched-earth strategy for delaying the confirmation of Brett Kavanaugh not only failed to keep the textualist judge out of the Supreme Court, it appears to have destroyed their chances to gain the coveted 51-seat majority in the Senate. A GOP gain of two or three Senate seats this cycle will make it very hard for Democrats to win the Senate in 2020, when two vulnerable Democratic Senate seats are up - in Alabama and New Hampshire - and four vulnerable GOP seats are up - in Colorado, Iowa, Maine and North Carolina.
If you somehow (stupidly) thought the controversy surrounding Brett Kavanaugh - or should I say Justice Privileged the White - would fade just because he's been elevated to the Supreme Court, well you haven't been paying attention.
Republicans and Democrats in the Senate cut a deal to vote on 15 judicial nominations Thursday so they could return to their home states for the final stretch of the campaign.
Trump has a busy campaign schedule to spread the word that the allegations against Kavanaugh were a "hoax that was set up by the Democrats" at what he's called a risky time for men who can be falsely accused. Moreover, the nominees the Senate confirmed on Thursday likely all would have gotten through even if Democrats objected and forced McConnell to stay in session through the end of the month.

Democrats need a gain of 23 seats to retake the House and a net pickup of two seats to reclaim a majority in the Senate.

Democratic Rep. Joe Fitzgibbon, heading up his caucus' campaign efforts, said with three competitive congressional races that overlap with several legislative districts there's "even more voter enthusiasm for showing up and casting their ballots".
And now it's time for the squishy, pussy Republicans in the Senate to make the Democrats, who caused all of this injury to America and to the Kavanaugh family, pay for their lies and perjured testimonies.
It's possible the complaints will never be investigated if the lower-court judges determine they have no jurisdiction over a Supreme Court justice under the judiciary's ethics rules.

"Honest to God, I would answer that question, but I'm going to let you guys do that assessment", he said.
