Contributing sentiments towards policy:

21% : She has ruled against prisoners, workers, debtors, and consumers, and there is reason to believe she would rule against the Affordable Care Act if the issue came before her.
38% : There is one perspective on law that suggests judges should be evaluated on the basis of their "qualifications" rather than their "politics".
31% : Barrett's rulings on the seventh circuit court of appeals show her to be someone who cares little about justice, and who doesn't particularly value the interests of workers, immigrants and the poor.
4% : In Biegert v Molitor, et al, Barrett sided with police who shot a mentally ill man to death after his mother had called 911.
90% : Nathan Robinson is a Guardian US columnist
88% : In case after case, she has found procedural technicalities to justify depriving people of their basic rights, and it's clear that on some of the most important issues of our time, she would swing the supreme court in a direction nobody should want to see it go.
79% : After all, many conservatives went to top-ranked law schools and published journal articles.
73% : In case after case, she's found procedural technicalities to justify depriving already powerless people of their basic rights
71% : The fact that Barrett is "qualified" does not automatically entitle her to a supreme court seat - and her politics are enough to justify trying to keep her off it.
21% : In addition to being a conservative Catholic, Barrett is a self-described legal "originalist" who almost certainly believes Roe was a legally shoddy opinion.
20% : The nomination of Amy Coney Barrett to the US supreme court has been controversial in large part because Republicans are so obviously violating the standard they used to justify keeping Merrick Garland off the supreme court during Obama's second term.
19% : I suspect that this is part of why Democratic opposition to Barrett has not been as strong as it should be, and the focus has been on Republican hypocrisy rather than Barrett's record.
19% : Slate's Mark Joseph Stern even argues that Democrats have "privately given up" on opposing Barrett.
15% : In the case of Torry, et al v City of Chicago, et al, she concluded that officers were reasonable in stopping and harassing a group of Black men even though there was absolutely no evidence that they had committed a crime.
