Senate Confirms 15 More Judges, Wrapping Up a GOP Priority

US President Donald Trump has had a series of wins but can it last

Republican congressional leaders like Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell and Speaker of the House Paul Ryan both had abysmal approval ratings (46 percent unfavorable and 25 percent favorable for the former, 49 percent unfavorable and 32 percent favorable for the latter), with the best showing for a national Republican figure going to Vice President Mike Pence, who had 45 percent unfavorable and 41 percent favorable.

He was then asked how it will affect his ability to get things done if Democrats were to win the House.

McConnell says Republicans learned that lesson when they launched impeachment proceedings against Bill Clinton in 1998.

Republican leaders made clear throughout the year they had no qualms about keeping senators in Washington until very close to Election Day.

To make matters worse for Democrats, Republicans continue to threaten Democratic incumbents in four other states with Senate races - Missouri, Indiana, Florida and Montana.

Henderson said in a press release earlier this month that the misconduct claims were filed after Kavanaugh's confirmation hearings, which began on September 4.

Hosts asked the president about a increased lead for Sen.

They're accusing Democrats of condoning "mob rule" - a phrase that's popped up in GOP rhetoric since raucous demonstrators opposing Brett Kavanaugh's Supreme Court nomination harangued Republicans at the Capitol last week.

So widespread discontent with the new justice - likely to be a swing vote on many high-profile Supreme Court cases - will serve to erode the court's authority and weaken faith in American institutions.

"He looks at the numbers and sees that he is doing poorly everywhere but his base, so he decides for his own personal sanity and his own personal kind of ego sense that he says, 'All right, I'll just look at how well I am doing among my base and just talk to my base.' So that is part of the reason he is doing it". That means Democrats will need to swipe at least three GOP seats to take back the Senate - an outcome that now appears somewhere between unlikely and impossible. I didn't believe the polls because I think they have tremendous energy.
