    For one thing, red-state Democrats who are up for re-election in 2018--Joe Manchin of West Virginia; Joe Donnelly of Indiana; and Claire McCaskill of Missouri--will be under intense pressure to break ranks with Chuck Schumer, and vote according to the desires of their constituents.

    And John Tester of Montana may also vote for confirmation.

    And I am really unconvinced that Susan Collins (of Maine) will vote against this nominee. Her recent proclamation that she could not vote for anyone who would challenge Roe v. Wade was likely just cover for the fact that she will probably be inclined to vote for this nominee; and, since Judge Kavanaugh has not (and presumably, will not) make an unambiguous statement in this regard, she can then tell her constituents, "Well, I voted for a man who did not say anything about voting to overturn Roe.

    So it is possible that Judge Kavanaugh may receive 50 Republican votes, plus a handful of Democratic votes.

    Comments?
    I think you'll get DINO Manchin's vote from the democrats side and I think RINO Collins of Maine will break ranks to vote against his nomination so it'll be a wash unless McCain shows up to vote and in that case it'll be a lock for sure on the nominee.

    I agree, he's mainstream conservative and probably won't see much resistance from Democrats.

    Collins and Murkowski voted for his confirmation to the DC Appellate Court. As did the Demos.


    The Demos will put up a fight, but not much of one. Just to keep their base happy. Mike Allen of Axios. Jake Sherman of Politico and other left leaning Law Pundits. State Kavanaugh will be confirmed.


    McCaskill doesn't matter what she does. She is losing in Missouri so no pressure on her over this vote. Now Heidkampt, Manchin, and Donnelly is a different story.


    Tester, Sherrod Brown will vote against.


    Rand Paul the Army of one.....will vote to confirm. Despite any face time before the cameras.

    He will be as reliable as Roberts. On the biggest, most important issues I believe Kavanaugh will side with the Statists against the Constitution.

    We need and should have a reliable Constitutional Conservative. Kavanaugh might become just another Kennedy or Roberts.
    Call your state legislators and insist they approve the Article V convention of States to propose amendments.

    He searched for a way to turn the ObamaCare penalty into a tax. No thanks. We should pass him by and demand a Constitutional Conservative.

    Kavanaugh is unreliable.

    MV is one of these guys who needs 100% agreement with his views. With him if you disagree on any issue he considers you an enemy of the nation.

    Remember, agree with him 100% of the time, or be prepared to be called an enemy of America.
