Kavanaugh Sinking.

Posted on

The American public isn’t sold on Brett Kavanaugh—and for good reason.

41% of voters in a recent poll say the Senate should not confirm Trump’s extremist Supreme Court nominee to a lifetime seat, while just 40% say they should.

For context, an April 2017 poll found that voters supported the confirmation of Neil Gorsuch by a ratio of 50-35%.

Do you know what that means? This fight is winnable if we keep up the pressure.

If you care about:

  • Health care
  • Women’s rights
  • Voting rights
  • Worker’s rights
  • LGBTQ rights
  • Environmental protections
  • Campaign finance reforms
  • Consumer protections

then it’s time to get involved.

On August 26, join people around the country and stand up to #UniteForJustice and #StopKavanaugh. There’s too much at stake to sit this one out.

TRUMP FIRST

A new Quinnipiac poll shows that a majority of voters don’t trust that Trump has the best interests of the U.S. in mind after last week’s disastrous Helsinki summit.

  • 54% of voters say Trump was not acting in the best interest of the U.S. in Helsinki.
  • 68% of American voters are “very concerned” or “somewhat concerned” about Trump’s relationship with Russia.
  • 73% of voters think the Helsinki summit was a success for Russia.

That’s a stunning 54% of American voters who don’t believe their president has their best interests in mind.

And it’s not just because of Trump’s Helsinki episode. A Navigator Research poll conducted from July 6 to July 9 shows that 56% of surveyed registered voters agreed that America’s foreign policy (read: Trump’s infantile global whims) doesn’t put America first.

TRUMP ADMIN STILL FAILING TO REUNITE FAMILIES

The Trump Administration was ordered to reunite all separated families by tomorrow, 7/26. Likelihood? Slim.

Remember that the administration already failed to meet another court-mandated deadline to reunite all children under the age of 5 with their families.

According to ThinkProgress:

  • 45/103 children under the age of 5 still have not been reunited with their families.
  • 1,539 minors aged 5-17 have yet to be reunited.
  • The administration admitted on Monday that it may have deported 463 parents without their children aged 5 or older.

We (and the rest of the country) will be watching in hopes that this cruelty and inhumanity finally comes to an end. We’ll keep you updated in tomorrow’s Progress Report.
