If Democrats were hoping that the push to confirm Amy Coney Barrett to the Supreme Court would backfire on President Trump and the Republicans, a new Morning Consult poll shows that is most likely not going to happen.
The poll, released Wednesday, shows that voters favor confirming Judge Amy Coney Barrett to the Supreme Court by a double-digit margin, with 46 percent supporting her confirmation, and 31 percent opposing. This represents a 9-point shift in her favor since she was first nominated.

Judge Barrett’s confirmation hearings are expected to start on Monday despite recent positive COVID-19 diagnoses for some Republicans on the Senate Judiciary Committee. Democrats have aggressively tried to stop ACB’s confirmation, but as of now, Republicans have both the votes and the support of the public.
