The Democrats have spent the last three weeks leading us by the nose down a path of increasingly outrageous allegations made against Judge Brett Kavanaugh and successfully delaying the final vote on his confirmation to the Supreme Court.
Now that they’ve failed, conservatives are relieved, and liberals are angry.
Conservatives are relieved that the political process actually worked for once and that you can’t yet accuse a man of sexual assault with absolutely no corroborating evidence and successfully ruin his life, even for the sake of political expediency.
Liberals are angry because they #BelieveAllWomen and a man they believe is a sexual assailant will now be appointed to the Supreme Court.
These may seem like polar opposite viewpoints, and they are. They also serve as a very good example as to where our highly divided nation is at in 2018.
But amid this highly emotionally- and ideologically-charged debate there is one, unifying factor among Americans: Dianne Feinstein did an awful job handling the Kavanaugh accusations.
Conservative Tribune reports that, while the last few weeks have seen the advantage in the polls Democrats had been enjoying for the upcoming November midterms virtually vanish, the vast majority of voters agree that Feinstein’s performance over the last few weeks as been awful:
A shockingly high number of Americans have voiced their disapproval with how Democrat Sen. Dianne Feinstein handled the kangaroo court — er, sorry, Senate proceedings.
“A majority of voters believe that Kavanaugh’s confirmation process was politicized and mishandled, with 69% calling it a ‘national disgrace,’” a poll from the respected Harvard CAPS – Harris group just found.
Voters are surprisingly unified when it comes to one thing: Chastising Feinstein for her role in the debacle.
“75% of voters believe that Senator Diana Feinstein (sic) should have immediately turned over the letter from Christine Ford to the Senate Judiciary committee in July, when she received it,” the Harvard CAPS – Harris poll found.
It’s worth noting that you can barely get people to agree on whether water is wet, let alone come together on a political question. The fact that a staggering 75 percent — that’s Republicans and Democrats — fault Feinstein on this issue speaks volumes.
While it may appear that people who think all alleged victims of sexual assault should be believed and people who think that men should be considered innocent until proven guilty could find no common ground, it is encouraging to know that both sides still agree it’s below the office of a Senator to use claims of sexual assault for a cheap political ploy.
You blew it, Dianne.
