Brett Kavanaugh’s fiery opening statement in his defense may have not only saved his nomination, but the Republican Party. New polls are suggesting that the campaign to destroy him energized the Republican base the way nothing else had in a while. And anecdotally, it’s the one thing that Republicans are talking about and impassioned about.
Over the Jewish holiday of Sukkot, I was in many homes, and I kept hearing the refrain again and again. Outrage.
If this trend holds, Republicans will be more likely to vote in midterm elections and the Democrat landslide is suddenly in trouble. There was too much complacency, general disgust with congress, and a lack of focus a few weeks ago.
The campaign to destroy Kavanaugh turned that around. It’s unifying even anti-Trump conservatives (I speak of conservatives, not the Quislings of the left like Max Boot, Jennifer Rubin, George Will and the rest of their media lapdog ilk.)
