LATEST POLL: Most Americans Support Confirmation of Judge Barrett, Oppose ‘Court Packing’

posted by Hannity Staff - 10.20.20

A new poll released Tuesday by Gallup shows a majority of Americans support the confirmation of Judge Amy Coney Barrett to the Supreme Court and most oppose the Democratic idea to “pack the courts” with additional justices.

“The poll, released Tuesday morning, revealed that 51% of participants said they are in favor of President Trump‘s latest nominee joining the high court, compared to 46% who are opposed. Just 3% said they do not have an opinion on the matter, the lowest number since Gallup started taking polls on Supreme Court nominees,” reports Fox News.

The poll was taken between September 30th and October 15th.

“Last week, Judge Barrett proved she has the deep legal expertise, judicial temperament, and intellectual horsepower that Americans deserve to have on the Supreme Court,” Sen. Mitch McConnell said. “The Senate will turn to her nomination as soon as it comes out of committee later this week.”

Controversial Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez ripped her Republican colleagues on social media Monday night; accusing GOP lawmakers of “co-opting faith” to “advance bigotry and barbarism.”

“Sick and tired of Republicans who co-opt faith as an excuse to advance bigotry and barbarism. Fact is, if today Christ himself came to the floor of Congress and repeated his teachings, many would malign him as a radical and eject him from the chamber,” posted Ocasio-Cortez.

Vice Presidential nominee Kamala Harris addressed the Senate during the confirmation process of Judge Amy Coney Barrett to the Supreme Court Monday; saying Republicans are “rushing and jamming” her nomination.

“The Constitution of the United States entrusts the Senate with the duty to carefully consider nominations to the Supreme Court… Yet the majority is rushing this process and jamming President Trump’s nominee through the Senate,” said Harris.

“People are actually voting. Millions more will vote while this illegitimate process is underway,” she added. “A majority of elections want whoever wins this election to fill this seat… They’re deliberately defying the will of the people.”

BARRETT to FEINSTEIN: ‘I Don’t Have Any Agenda’ and Will ‘Stick to the Rule of Law to Decide Cases’

posted by Hannity Staff - 10.13.20

Judge Amy Coney Barrett fired-back at Sen. Dianne Feinstein when pressed on whether she has a “political agenda” for the Supreme Court; stating her “only agenda is to stick to the rule of law and decide cases as they come.”

“On something that is really a major cause with a major effect on over half of the population of this country, it’s distressing not to get a straight answer. Do you agree with Justice Scalia’s view that ‘Roe’ was wrongly decide?” asked Sen. Dianne Feinstein.

“I understand why you’re asking the question. But I can’t pre-commit. I don’t have any agenda. I have an agenda to stick to the rule of law and decide cases as they come,” fired-back Judge Barrett.
