Support Grows For Amy Coney Barrett--Biden Reacts

Support among voters is growing for Trump's Supreme Court nominee Amy Coney Barrett to be confirmed to the Court.

A little over 46% of voters now back Trump---up 9 points from last month.

Biden has reacted and says he will make "the only responsible response" to the confirmation of Barrett.

And about the Pence-Harris debate.

Be informed, not misled.

The American public likes Coney-Barrett.

I'll be talking more about the Pence-Harris debate on our live radio program this morning.

A survey taken October 2-4 by Morning Consult/Politico released yesterday, showed support for confirming Barrett to the Supreme Court is growing among Republicans, independents, and even Democrats.

Democrat support for her confirmation jumped to 24%, an increase of 10 points from September 26.

Republican support for confirming her increased by 6 percentage points from 71% to 77%, and independent support grew from 28% to 36%.

A plurality of voters---46%---believe the Senate should vote to confirm Barrett. That's a 9% increase over the course of a week.

Among all voters, the percentage of those who believe the Senate should should "not" confirm Barrett dropped from 34% to 31%---including a drop from 59% to 53% among Democrats.

The average person doesn't need a consultant or analyst to point out that the Coney-Barrett nomination is going the wrong way for pro-abortion Democrats. And their allies in the abortion industry.

Joe Biden has discovered this problem and is offering his solution for fixing the "Barrett problem."

Joe Biden: "I will make the only responsible response" to the confirmation of Amy Coney Barrett.

Biden promised this week to ensure legislation passes that makes Roe v Wade "the law of the land."

He continued.

"Number one, we don't know what she will do, although the expectation is that she may very well move to over...overview...overrule Roe."

Biden was responding to a question from Cassidy Brown, who works in sports marketing, that was expressing her concern about her inability to obtain birth control and an abortion should Amy Coney Barrett be confirmed to the Supreme Court.

Notice Brown's carefully worded, falsely presented question:

"I knew whenever I was graduating high school and entering college that I wanted to obtain my degree and start a career before starting a family. Having access to birth control and safe reproductive healthcare was imperative in making that true for me. So, considering the new Supreme Court nomination of Amy Coney- Barrett, what are your particular plans to protect women's reproductive rights in the US?"

She is making the assumption that she cannot have a career without "having access to birth control and safe reproductive health care," which is code for abortion on demand.

And her "access" to birth control being at "risk" if Coney- Barret is confirmed, is again the code of the so-called "progressives" for "free birth control," which is a reference to protecting Obamacare.

This is straight out of the Planned Parenthood playbook. Both free birth control and abortion on demand is currently available through the abortion industry giant, PP. 

Obamacare is important to the Left because when it was given birth, then Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius administratively inserted birth control into Obamacare as an "essential preventable service" and made contraception a "mandate" according to the Washington Post

Barack Obama is, of course, obsessed with preserving his "Obamacare legacy."

And speaking of legacy.

Planned Parenthood has just spent a million dollars on a media campaign to preserve the "legacy" of Ruth Bader Ginsburg. 

PP says it's about "what's at stake if Donald Trump is allowed to 'fill' Ginsburg's seat on the Supreme Court with a nominee hostile to reproductive freedom, civil rights, democracy, and healthcare, continuing his takeover of the federal judiciary."

The seats on the Supreme Court do not belong to "Ginsburg" or "Thomas" or any other Justice. They belong to the American people. That's our legacy.

A couple of things to remember about Ruth Bader Ginsburg's legacy.

1. The New York Times published this misleading headline: "Why Ruth Bader Ginsburg Wasn't All That Fond of Roe v Wade."

Their point is that she believed Roe is too "sweeping and vulnerable to attacks." She didn't "like how it was structured."

She said, "The ruling tried to do too much too fast---essentially making every abortion restriction in the country at the time illegal in one fell swoop---leaving it open to fierce attacks."

I pray she's right and that it is "open to fierce attacks." 

Her legacy on abortion is that she was a fierce advocate for abortion and its expansion at all costs.

2. She was apparently not as committed to advocacy of our US Constitution. 

Fox News says when Ginsburg was in Cairo a few years ago, she was asked by the Egyptian revolutionaries if she thought the US Constitution was a good model for them to follow.

She responded:

"I would not look to the US Constitution. If I were drafting a constitution in the year of 2012, I might look at the constitution of South Africa. That was a deliberate attempt to have a fundamental instrument of government that embraced basic human rights, [and] have an independent judiciary. It really is, I think, a great piece of work that was done."

In fairness, she did speak favorably in other cases about our Constitution.

How did she really feel about our Constitution? I don't know. 

One thing is certain, President Trump believes he knows how Amy Coney Barret feels about our Constitution. And so does a growing number of American voters.

We'll learn much more about all that beginning Monday when Barrett's hearing begins.

Be Informed. Be Discerning. Be Vigilant. Be Prayerful. VOTE.
