In the wake of Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh's hearing before the Senate against sexual assault allegations
, a new poll
has found that the U.S. public is deeply divided on whether he should be confirmed or not. Kavanaugh and his accuser, Dr. Christine Blasey Ford, testified before the Senate on September 27. After remaining relatively quiet on the issue, President Trump mocked Ford's testimony at a campaign rally in Mississippi on Tuesday night, resulting in a chorus of criticism from Democratic and key Republican senators.
The Gallup poll found that back in mid-July of this year, 41 percent of Americans felt the Senate should vote in favor of Kavanaugh serving on the Supreme Court
while 37 percent were opposed and 22 percent had no view. The most recent polling shows that more Americans now have an opinion about whether or not he should be confirmed. At the end of September, only 9 percent had no opinion about the confirmation while the rest of the country was deeply divided. 46 percent think the Senate should vote in favor while 45 percent remain opposed.
