Thousands march in Chicago to encourage voting in midterms

Protesters greeted newly confirmed Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh for his first day of work on Tuesday dressed as characters from the TV show The Handmaid's Tale

Adrenne Kelley, a 37-year-old Republican in Phoenix, said that she's voted for him in the past and she was "kind of surprised" by his effort to slow the process down, but ultimately thought it was a good move.

It all started with the retirement of Supreme Court judge Anthony Kennedy, a liberal conservative and the so-called swing vote. "In this week's poll, 70 percent of voters say they are very motivated to vote - including 77 percent of Democrats, 68 percent of Republicans, and 60 percent of independents".

Two are known to have been filed by filed by the Democratic Coalition, a political action group, Buzzfeed reported. Today, with that GOP House majority at risk and some close Senate races that will determine who has control of that chamber in January, a 77 percent majority of registered voters say they are certain to vote next month or have already voted, up from a 65 percent majority in Post-ABC polls in October 2014. Among registered voters, women favor Democratic House candidates by 59 percent to 37 percent while men split about evenly, with 48 percent favoring Republican House candidates and 46 percent favoring Democrats. Last month, a woman said Fain raped her in Washington, D.C.in 2007. All but one Democrat voted against. But practically speaking, it served to renew attention on the overall issue of health care, which polling shows ranks at the top of the public's priorities and has been a major concern for voters for over a decade. Women as a whole support an investigation 58 percent to 37 percent, while men are almost evenly split on that matter, with 47 percent supporting an investigation and 49 percent opposing it. Results have a margin of sampling error of 3.5 points for the full sample, including design effects due to weighting.

"The biggest challenge is the separating of what's happening in Washington, D.C. from Washington state", she said.

Kavanaugh's wife watched the lively session as did his daughters, who were granted a day off from school to see their father's first day on the nation's top court.

The elections are also being seen as a barometer of President Donald Trump's popularity.

"It's not surprising that Senate Democrats are fighting to take away people's choices on health care, to drive up premiums", said Sen.

It is that mindset that organizers were fighting to change with an event they specifically aimed to take place in the runup to the midterm election.

More broadly, the stakes in November for Democrats are extremely high. Overall, the two parties are in roughly equally bad standing among the American public: 55 percent have an unfavorable view of Republicans and 52 percent have an unfavorable view of Democrats, while 36 percent have a favorable view of Republicans and 38 percent have a favorable view of Democrats.

This statement is anything but surprising from a man like President Trump, who has made a myriad of equally divisive and disrespectful comments, but it was in this moment I realized the scope of what this quote means. Which leads me to wonder, how many others - those vowing not to visit Maine this year, or buy from L.L. Bean, for example, thereby attempting to claim the moral high ground - live in states where one or both senators supported the Ka- vanaugh confirmation?
