Contributing sentiments towards policy:

35% : It's a message that, along with the focus on abortion, Democrats hope will resonate with voters in the presidential election, two years after Democrats won back control of the House of Representatives by relentlessly hammering Republicans on efforts to repeal Obamacare.
54% : Using poster boards and testimonials, Democrats highlighted the health care concerns of their constituents, linking the challenge to the health care law to the ongoing coronavirus pandemic -- and the millions of infected Americans who now have a pre-existing condition.
51% : But instead of boycotting the proceedings, as some progressive activists have demanded, Democrats used their opening statements to highlight the stakes of Barrett's confirmation -- which would give conservatives a 6-3 majority on the Supreme Court and potentially imperil elements of the Affordable Care Act, as a challenge to Obama's landmark health care law is scheduled to come before the court in November.
95% : Sens. Mike Lee, R-Utah, and Thom Tillis, R-N.C., both tested positive for the coronavirus in the wake of the White House event announcing Barrett's nomination several weeks ago.
90% : While the outcome of the process is not in doubt -- Republicans have the votes and the political will to report her nomination to the full Senate chamber and tee up a final vote before Election Day -- senators previewed their strategies for handling the controversial confirmation process unfolding as Americans are already voting in states across the country.
89% : Meadows, who is tested regularly, has been in close contact with Trump since his coronavirus infection, and even stayed with him overnight at Walter Reed Medical Center last week.
82% : With the coronavirus pandemic disrupting voting across the country, and virtually every state scrambling to adjust voting rules and prepare for an unprecedented level of absentee ballots, both Republicans and Democrats are girding for potential legal fights across the map that could play out like the dramatic Florida recount in 2000 across multiple battleground states.
78% : With every mask-wearing senator, bottle of hand sanitizer and wide shot of the socially distanced seating arrangement in the Senate's largest hearing room, it was a reminder of the virus that has upended life in the United States and around the world.
15% : Barrett, if confirmed, would be the sixth Roman Catholic justice on the Supreme Court.
12% : The Senate Judiciary Committee on Monday spent roughly five hours hearing opening statements from lawmakers and Judge Amy Coney Barrett, as they began considering her nomination to the Supreme Court.
11% : Republicans accuse Democrats of 'anti-Catholic' bias
4% : "There is nothing unconstitutional about this process," Graham said, though he acknowledged that Democrats were "right" that a precedent had been broken with a vote this close to the election.
3% : While Lee was in attendance Monday, citing the approval of the Office of the Attending Physician on Capitol Hill, Tillis participated remotely, as did several Democrats -- including Sen. Kamala Harris, D-Calif., the Democratic vice presidential nominee, and Sen. Pat Leahy, D-Vt., a former chairman of the panel.
