Contributing sentiments towards policy:

39% : No fair-minded person would conclude that having engaged on the Second Amendment openly in a confirmation hearing, she is now unfit to hear gun cases on the Supreme Court.
28% : We know a fair amount about how Barrett views gun rights because she wrote a dissent in a gun case and couldn't avoid discussing it.
94% : Likewise, Bork testified as Bork -- brilliant and provocative -- and it was a political debacle.
93% : Barrett is an exemplary nominee who was knowledgeable, clear and composed throughout the three days of questioning, but not always responsive.
91% : She played the game as the rules have been established for decades and played it well.
88% : The court has taken on an outsize role in our national life, while at the same time nominees say less than ever about their views during the one chance the senators have to vet them publicly.
87% : Senators can express great frustration at not getting answers to their questions, but this is a practice they've long tolerated and won't change.
23% : Judge Amy Coney Barrett ­acquitted herself very well at her confirmation hearings, which means, quite often
21% : The rationale for this, going back to Ginsburg, is that a judge can't comment on matters that might come before the court, a category so capacious that it includes almost anything of public interest.
21% : It's one thing to commit to vote a certain way in a given case; it's another to conceal basic views on the law behind a curtain of judicial impartiality.
18% : It is to take nothing away from her to wonder whether this longstanding norm of nominees running away from many substantive questions serves the Senate or the country well.
6% : You'd think we'd want to hear more from a prospective member of a body that elections are explicitly fought over and that, for better or (mostly) worse, determines how we are governed.
