In advance of Sen. Manchin’s meeting this afternoon with Judge Kavanaugh, Judicial Crisis Network’s Chief Counsel and Policy Director Carrie Severino released a statement:
“Will Senator Manchin stand with the people of West Virginia in supporting President Trump’s extraordinarily qualified Supreme Court nominee, or will he stand with the extremists in his party like Chuck Schumer?”
JCN released fresh polling from North Star Opinion Research (Whit Ayres) early last week that found that:
• A majority of voters (55% to 30%) in West Virginia say that the U.S. Senate should confirm Kavanaugh.
• Additionally, independents strongly favor confirmation by a margin of 59% to 23% in West Virginia.
