Dem Group Files Kavanaugh Ethics Complaints, Sent to Circuit Court

While Democrats have forced Republicans to use extra debate time repeatedly on nominations, GOP leaders have been relentless in using time on the Senate floor for judicial picks by President Trump in 2017 and 2018, confirming 84 judges to all levels of the judiciary.

It also suggests the tumultuous battle over his nomination could harm the court's reputation as the nonpartisan branch of government.

He called the Kavanaugh row "a disgraceful situation brought about by people who are evil", and said that the result was "very exciting". Roughly a third said it would make no difference in their vote (22 percent) or had no opinion (10 percent). If one party gains control of the White House and both houses of Congress, such a move is at least a possibility in the current degraded political atmosphere. Additionally, moderate women are 17 points more likely than moderate men to disapprove of the confirmation, 69 vs. 52 percent.

Trump has repeatedly said that putting conservatives on the court - Kavanaugh is his second appointment - was among the top goals of his presidency.

The revelation of the allegations against Weinstein inspired many women to reveal their own stories of sexual assault, but Trump has recently taken shots at the #MeToo movement by expressing concern for men who are accused of sexual assault or harassment.

Before hearing arguments on October 9, the justices turned aside appeals of a 2017 ruling authored by Kavanaugh on the lower court that struck down a 2015 environmental rule imposed under Democratic former President Barack Obama.

The organizers of the march of Chicago, which is held under the slogan "let us Walk up to the polls" (#MarchToThePolls), have planned this gathering a few weeks before the parliamentary elections in mid-term, during which the democratic Party hopes to regain control of the House of representatives to the republicans.

At a White House ceremony Monday night, President Trump apologized to the new justice for "the bad pain and suffering" he and his family were "forced to endure". Support for Kavanaugh's confirmation among Republicans lags slightly at 73 percent, compared to 12 percent who say it was the wrong decision.

Judicial nominees have been a huge part of the Senate Republican agenda, and the McConnell led Senate has surpassed all expectations of judicial confirmations. Last month, a woman said Fain raped her in Washington, 2007. It was clear Democrats would lose, and a real victory was never feasible since the measure would have died anyway in the Republican-run House.

Senate Democrats up for reelection in red states feared they could be kept in Washington while their Republican challengers ran free in their respective states.

White women with college degrees split 57 percent to 42 percent for Democratic candidates while white women without a college education lean toward Republicans, 49 percent to 43 percent.

The Chicago rally symbolized the political rancor generated by the partisan fight over Kavanaugh's confirmation despite sexual assault allegations and powerful testimony against him by his accuser Christine Blasey Ford. Significantly more women think the committee's actions were deficient, 56 percent vs. 43 percent.
