Poll: Support for Amy Coney Barrett confirmation jumps 9 points

Supreme Court nominee Amy Coney Barrett is set to face a tough confirmation process before the Senate in the coming days, but GOP leaders can rest assured that the majority of the public backs Barrett’s installation on the court.

According to a new Morning Consult poll, nearly half of voters — 46 percent — agree that Amy Coney Barrett should be confirmed, as opposed to only 31 percent that believes the Senate should reject her nomination. 

The poll was conducted from October 2-4, and according to pollsters, Democrats are “losing the Supreme Court messaging war” and public opinion concerning Barrett is trending towards the GOP.

According to the poll analysis:

The share of voters who said the Senate should reject her nomination dropped 3 points, to 31 percent, from polling conducted on Sept. 26. Both polls were conducted among roughly 2,000 registered voters each, with 2-point margins of error.

Seventy-seven percent of GOP voters back Barrett’s confirmation, up 6 points from late last month. Among independents, the share who said she should be confirmed increased 8 points, to 36 percent, while the share of Democratic voters who said she should be confirmed increased 10 points, to 24 percent.

Most importantly, a plurality of voters believe Barrett should be confirmed as soon as possible, regardless of the results of the November election — and that share of voters has grown nine points since late September.

Democrats are struggling to settle on a plan of attack against Barrett. The most likely approach involves attacking Barrett’s staunchly Catholic faith, but a full-on assault on her religious convictions risks alienating religious Democrats — a risk that Democrats can’t take ahead of the election.

Thus, Senate GOP leaders are charging ahead with Barrett’s confirmation with the American public behind them.
