  • Kagan’s support slipping

    5/27/2010 3:20:47 PM Posted by Patrick Coyle

    Today, a Rasmussen Report was released showing that Elena Kagan’s disapproval numbers have risen to 47%. Last week, that number was 39%. Clearly, our concerted “Keep Out Kagan” efforts are making progress.

     

    Also, a USA TODAY poll revealed that Kagan’s approval ratings are the lowest of any recent nominee. While the media concluded weeks ago that Kagan’s nomination was inevitable (an “open and shut case,” if you will), they are now having second thoughts.

    Kagan’s current approval number is 46% according to USA TODAY. Chief Justice John Roberts was viewed positively by 60% by the time he was confirmed in 2005, Clarence Thomas by 58% in 1991, Sonia Sotomayor by 55% when she was confirmed last year. Ruth Bader Ginsburg was favored by 53% in 1993 and Samuel Alito by 54% in 2006.

    These numbers should come as no surprise to those who are familiar with Elena Kagan. Her resume-killing characteristics go on for miles:

    The numbers, combined with her less than appealing history, will make for an interesting day come June 8.

    • It was interesting that Beth and Debbie on the Shootaround poscadt felt that Mizzou had seriously underfunded the wbball program under resourced' I believe the phrase was.So, to get a big name (who's out there?) they're going to have to come up with big bucks Or will they? Consider how those bucks have paid off in Texas and Texas Tech. http://tbxfbnwmhn.com [url=http://lsvhzdgqqu.com]lsvhzdgqqu[/url] [link=http://dtvwsaxw.com]dtvwsaxw[/link]

    • Limbaugh gets it. He also wants Rick Perry in the race. If he and Sarah battle it out,<a href="http://aygwhst.com"> whheievcr</a> one wins will get a boost. They'd make a great Pres and VP<a href="http://aygwhst.com"> whheievcr</a> way round though I'm not sure either would settle for VP.
