Axios AM: Court’s ballot bite

One of the fall’s great political dramas will be the Brett Kavanaugh confirmation votes by Democratic senators up for reelection in red states.

A polling memo from WPA Intelligence and Definers Public Affairs, “Political Peril Facing Red State Democrats On SCOTUS Obstruction,” shows how Republicans will try to make the issue an albatross:

  • In 10 states polled, “support for Judge Kavanaugh’s nomination is highest in four states that President Trump won by double-digits in 2016 and where incumbent Democratic senators are particularly vulnerable” — North Dakota, Montana, West Virginia and Missouri.

Read the memo.
