Poll: Two-Thirds Want Senate to Vote on Garland Nomination

Merrick GarlandPennsylvanians want the Senate to vote on President Obama’s Supreme Court nominee, Merrick Garland.

At least that’s according to a new poll from GBA Strategies and the Center for American Progress (CAP). It’s worth keeping in mind, though, that CAP is a progressive think tank.

Nonetheless, the group did release the text of their questions, which is not something every think tank does when promoting their latest polls.

The organization seems to be targeting states that have vulnerable freshman GOP Senators or ones that have party leaders who are still up for re-election in competitive states. In the former group there is Pat Toomey of Pennsylvania as well as Rob Portman of Ohio and Ron Johnson of Wisconsin. The latter group includes Judiciary Chairman Chuck Grassley of Iowa and former presidential nominee John McCain of Arizona (it’s also possible they could be targeting Arizona’s other Senator, Jeff Flake, who has opined about confirming the judge and sits on the Judiciary Committee).  

They found that by a 66% to 28% margin, Pennsylvanians support an up-or-down vote on Garland. A plurality, 42%, actually want Judge Garland to be confirmed.

Fifty-five percent oppose the GOP’s plan to sit on the nomination and not hold a vote, while just thirty-seven percent support it. This could be because 64% believe this is being done for political reasons.

Finally, 38% say Toomey’s position makes them view him less favorably while 20% respond that they view the Senator more favorably.

The Center for American Progress and GBA Strategies surveyed 600 registered voters in Pennsylvania through landlines and cellphones. The margin of error is +/- 4%.

  2. The Democrat’s did it to when President Obama was a Senator. Now the shoe is on the other foot and everyone is upset.Someone will be appointed in due time. In Hillary Clinton’s words “what difference does it make at this time”

  3. Who needs Merrick Garland when Pat Toomey knows America needs Allan Kennedy Shaffer.

  4. It is disgraceful that any PA citizens support the GOP Congress not doing their job. Whether they vote up or down is another matter, but their duty is to vote. Cowardly to avoid that duty and avoid voters seeing where they stand and why.
