New Poll Suggests Sen. Susan Collins' Support for Brett Kavanaugh Will End Her Career

Source: lawandcrime.com





by Colin Kalmbacher | 12:38 pm, October 15th, 2019


A new poll, however, suggests that Collins has reached the twilight of her career due in large part to her vote to confirm Brett Kavanaugh to the Supreme Court — despite allegations of sexual assault against Kavanaugh and despite Collins’s pledge not to not vote for a nominee who demonstrated “hostility” to Roe v. Wade. Collins has said that when she spoke with Kavanaugh they talked “at great length about precedent and the application of stare decisis.” According to Collins, Kavanaugh said he “agreed with what Justice Roberts said at his nomination hearing, in which he said that [Roe] was settled law.”


Public Policy Polling (PPP) released data on Tuesday showing that only 35 percent of Pine Tree State voters currently approve of the job Collins is doing in the Senate while 50 percent of voters disapprove.

The never-missed-a-vote Senator’s current numbers are a stark contrast to a similar poll conducted by PPP last September which showed her leading a generic Democrat by six points at 44-38 percent; representing a nine point swing against her favor....................

2. It Isn't Only the Kavanaugh Vote That Will Doom Collins

It's all the times she "had concerns" but in the end went along with whatever garbage Trump and the GOP was selling.

There is no way for this to be made right, no matter what price she pays...

12. $50 bucks says...

...she's wishing for a "do-over".

I recollect that she blurted out after a closed door meeting that "K" considered reproductive rights "settled law". Probably thought, this would be your usual "hem and haw" confirmation and everyone would forget about it. Then.....all the other shit came out. Whoops, sometimes telephoning it in doesn't work.

14. Couldn't happen to a nicer person [THISISSATIRE]

She is the worst of the self-assessed 'independent / moderate' wing of the republican party. What a sham.. to drag one's feet until the exactly politically expedient moment is not what moderate-ness is, as far as I have been taught.

So, fuck you, Senator, and fuck the horse you'll ride out on. And it is a proper goddamn shame that it took putting the human rights of women in possibly permanent jeopardy to have done so.

She should then be shunned for her utter treachery and hypocritcal, self-serving whiney lies.

As it should be, his tirade at the hearings showed at the VERY least he lacked judicial temperament. PERIOD. That's just what we saw. Oh there is also the other "thing" as well.
