Oct 1, 2018

Georgians are divided and somewhat more in favor of Brett Kavanaughs' Supreme Court nomination than those who oppose it, after hearing from both Kavanaugh and the woman who accused him of sexual assault, Dr. Christine Blasey Ford.  A new poll done by Landmark Communications shows that Georgians currently support the nomination of Brett Kavanaugh to the United States Supreme court by a margin of 49 percent to 43 percent. 

 Among likely female voters, 47 percent oppose Kavanaugh's confirmation while 43 support, with 11 percent undecided. Men support the confirmation 56 percent to 39 percent.  Along partisan lines, Democrats are strongly opposed while Republicans overwhelmingly support President Donald Trump's pick.

 “The publicity and partisan display from the Kavanaugh nomination has not helped Democrats or Stacey Abrams in Georgia,” said Mark Rountree, President of Landmark Communications, Inc. "Georgia is a red-leaning state, so when news or events are perceived as partisan, it  generally helps Republicans.” “Nearly 90 percent of Republicans supporting with nearly 90 percent of Democrats opposing,” Rountree said.
