[Politics] White House, Grassley Back Kavanaugh After Accuser Goes Public

The White House and Senate Judiciary Committee chairman Chuck Grassley (R., Iowa) are continuing to give their full backing to Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh following an accusation of sexual assault against him.

It stems from an alleged incident 35 years ago when Kavanaugh was likely a junior in high school, though his accuser said she could not be sure of the precise year or location of the alleged attack. 

California professor Christine Blasey Ford told the Washington Post Kavanaugh attacked her when they were at a party in Maryland in the early 1980s, alleging he forced her into bed, groped her, and tried to remove her clothes while he was heavily intoxicated, all while his friend watched. She said she managed to escape after the friend, Mark Judge, jumped on them, sending them tumbling and giving her an opportunity to get out of the room.

[Politics] Voters Think Platforms More Important Than Money to Win Elections

As midterm elections approach, voters are strong believers in quality over quantity, in that a candidate’s positions have more weight than their pocketbook.

A new Rasmussen Reports national telephone and online survey finds that 79% of Likely U.S. Voters think a candidate’s political positions are more important in determining the outcome of most elections than how much money he or she has to spend. This is up significantly from 63% a year ago and 67% in 2015, but is in line with the 75% who felt the same way in 2010.

Just 13% disagree and think how much money a candidate spends is more important to an election, down 10 points from 2017. (To see survey question wording, click here.)
