Thousands march in Chicago against Trump's 'anti-woman agenda'

Thousands march in Chicago against Trump's 'anti-woman agenda'

The addition of 15 federal judges just days after the confirmation of Brett Kavanaugh to the Supreme Court was seen as another win for the GOP with the November midterms on the horizon.

Rep. Jerrold Nadler, D-N.Y., has promised an investigation into sexual misconduct and perjury allegations against Kavanaugh, which he vehemently denies, if the Democrats take control of the House in the midterm elections.

Removal of a Supreme Court justice is nearly unthinkable - it would require 67 votes in the Senate, meaning it would be a massive bipartisan effort over the most polarizing issue there is.

A Post/ABC News poll found that "that 43 percent of Americans believe the court's rulings will be more politically motivated with President Trump's second nominee on the court, compared with 10 percent who said they will be less political". To 39 percent of the public, Kavanaugh's presence will make no difference in the degree of partisanship.

While President Trump predicts the midterms could see a "Red Wave" based on the size of his campaign rallies, political analysts say a "Blue Wave" is imminent because angry and energized voters will vote for Democrats. A New York Times Upshot poll this week found Blackburn ahead by 14 points.

The split over further investigation closely mirrors Americans' overall support for the Senate's decision to confirm him.

And following the GOP-led effort to push through his nomination, enthusiasm among Democratic voters has surged. It seems Republicans and, in turn, many in the media discounted the rage women voters were experiencing.

The loud crowd of thousands of men, women and even children, marched through downtown Chicago chanting "Vote them out!"

"You're seeing Republicans - in the areas where Trump did well - go up in the polls because the Trump voters are reengaged and they're coming back out", McLaughlin told host John Catsimatidis.

They said similar marches fueled by anger over the Kavanaugh confirmation were scheduled later in October in other states, including the Republican strongholds of Texas, Georgia and SC. "The American people are sick of the display that's been put on here in the United States Senate in the guise of a confirmation process". (At any rate, Republicans remain out of contention in Wisconsin, Ohio and Pennsylvania - all states Trump won in 2016.) Meanwhile, in House races, the gender divide is sinking GOP candidates. Earlier this week, he called out mainstream outlets for failing to ask some hard questions about how the Christine Blasey Ford letter was leaked at the strategically perfectly moment for Senate Democrats desperate to delay the confirmation of Brett Kavanaugh.
